Sox to hold Lackey and Cameron press conferences today

Dec 16, 2009, 9:35 AM EDT

If you want to hear some ballplayers say things like “I just want to help the ballclub” and “I knew that coming to Boston meant a chance to win,” you can tune into NESN or the MLB Network later today: Mike Cameron will have his press conference at 11:30 Eastern. Lackey meets the press at 1:30.

We should make a drinking game out of it. I’m not that good at those things, but I’ll offer this: the first time a reporter asks one of these guys — each of whom has been around the league a long time, have played in big cities, and have considerable playoff experience — a question that implies that they’re not really prepared to play in Red Sox-Yankees games, everybody chug.

    The guys at Fenway West bring up a good point (http://www.fenwaywest.com/2009-articles/december/mike-camerons-number-choice-will-be-interesting.html): what number will Mike Cameron claim as his own today? In the past, he’s worn #44 (Jason Bay’s number) and #25 (Mike Lowell’s number). Both of those guys are presumably gone, but neither is official. Will Cameron get one of those numbers, choose a different number, or just pretend to choose a different number until they both are officially gone?

    Granted, it’s not all that big of a deal. But, as we all know, when it comes to the Red Sox, *everything* is a big deal.

    They might have to bring out a hoveround for Cameron. Its going to be a lot of fun watching him be the strikeout machine he’s always been in baston.

    Cameron ended up with #23. He seems like a guy who isn’t going to make waves about things like that.
