The Brewers have until 5 days after the World Series to pick up Mike Cameron's option, according to Buster Olney (via mlbtraderumors.com).
Here's what Tim Dierkes, who runs mlbtraderumors.com, had to say about exercising Cameron's option:
Cameron, 36 in January, hit .243/.331/.477 in 508 plate appearances. He also saved eight runs defensively compared to the average center fielder. After such a fine year, he's an easy choice at one-year, $9.25MM.
While I know a lot of Brewers fans would quibble with calling Cameron's season a "fine year" I have to agree with Dierkes. They have no adequate replacement for Cameron at present, and his defense along with intangibles would seem to make it an easy choice to bring him back. Though I'll admit it's not my $10 million.
For those of you tempted to suggest Tony Gwynn Jr. as a Cameron replacement, just stop right now before you say something silly.
