8. Mike Cameron
2009 defensive stats: 146 starts, .990 FPCT, 4 errors.
Cameron, a two-time Gold Glove winner with a knack for the spectacular and excellent range even at age 36, bumps Ellsbury to left field, meaning the Sox should have all the gaps covered.
He is a lifetime .250 hitter who batted -- yep -- .250 last season. But he has legitimate power -- he has hit at least 19 homers in all but one season since 1998.
