Sox add former golden boy: Hermida
November 5th, 2009 by czar

At 25, he’s still a great gamble (at what will likely be ~$2-3 mil) for minor league filler. Worst case you spin him again later in the winter or just non-tender him. Best case you now an OF4/5 with decent skills and upside.

I’m a big fan of jumping all over raw talent (even with poor results– although he’s only a couple seasons removed from a 23 year old with an 870+ OPS) when it comes at essentially no cost to the team.

About The Site

  • Traversing the land that is known as Red Sox Nation, The Czar Who Wears Red Sox is an attempt at compiling a repertoire of my ever-so-sexy forum posts (when I'm too lazy to write my own damn entry) and other random baseball thoughts that strike. For those whose posts serve as the inspiration of my epiphanies and rants, do not be angry, but merely, be honored that you have achieved such status. Names will never be revealed. Feedback appreciated, as this is a work in progress.
