12/14 Center field options
Looks like the Cubs’ pool of free agent center fielders is going to lose one. Reports have Mike Cameron close to signing a two-year deal with the Red Sox for $15.5 million. That’s more than the Cubs wanted to spend both in terms of length of contract and money. The other options for center include Marlon Byrd, Scott Podsednik and Rick Ankiel.
