Quick Bits: Matsui, Lackey, Cameron, Halladay, Damon
Here’s a quick rundown of yesterday’s madness (for those who may have missed it):
- Sadly, the Angels signed Hideki Matsui to a one-year deal worth $6.5M. See Keith Law’s take here.
- The Boston Red Sox strengthened their starting rotation by signing former Angels ace, John Lackey.
- The Sox also added to their defense by signing Mike Cameron for left field. See Keith Law’s take here.
- Roy Halladay was traded to the Phillies, who also sent their own ace, Cliff Lee, to the Seattle Mariners.
- With Matsui and Cameron off the board, Ken Davidoff thinks it was a good day for Johnny Damon.
What a series of events, huh? It’s important to note that all of these moves are contingent upon physicals.
