Hermida to the Red Sox


According to friend of the Maniac Juan C. Rodriguez, the Boston Red Sox have acquired corner outfielder Jeremy Hermida from the Marlins for minor league lefties Hunter Jones and Jose Alvarez. More reaction from me later on tonight, as I have to go to work now, but needless to say, the hot stove season for the Marlins has begun heating up quickly. Interesting deal.

    Hi Michael,

    It’s kind of hard to be pissed at any return the Fish would have gotten, Hermida never lived up to his potential, and now will be their 4th OFer and probably rake for them in that lineup.

    I hope this means Cody is staying.

    PS – my Heat blog has been added to the roll.. I feel so official!

    Lane,

    I agree, the Marlins had very little leverage with the way they treated Hermida this season and the way he played. I hope he does well wherever he goes from here.

    I am pretty sure that Cody is staying, as the team really likes him. We’ll have to see how this offseason develops, but we kicked it off interestingly enough.

    we’ll see if there is a part B, a trade of either Uggla or Cantu next, both of whom SHOULD have value. Especially if they extend Josh Johnson, they probably will dump one or both and use that salary to pay for JJ. They can plug in Gaby Sanchez or Logan Morrison at 1B and Coughlan (or god forbin Bonifacio) at 2B (and Logan in LF for instance).

    Get a cheap platoon partner for Wes for 3B.

    C – Baker
    1B – Gaby
    2B – Couglan
    SS – HanRam
    3B – Uncle Wes/Platoon
    LF – Morrison
    CF – Maybin
    RF – Cody

      Lane,

      I think you’ve got the right idea, although I’d say we’d be in a heap of trouble if we had Uncle Wes starting for us at third base. There should cheap options available in the market right now, not to mention the trading of Cantu/Uggla/both. We’ll have to wait and see, I for one am excited.
