solid move by the marlins pulling him up now instead of tomorrow.... now if the marlins make the playoffs, hermida can be on the playoff roster,,, as i am sure he would be given a spot in the OF so mcab can play 3b.....

so, does this immediately put j.encarnacion on the bench?

and is hermida a good guy to have in re-drafts? i hate being gun-shy on these guys, but not as much as i dislike getting trigger-happy with them.

cbs describes him as potentially the next shawn green, but doesn't he steal a lot? very confused about his worth this year.

yeah, yes...

shawn green used to steal a lot of bases. 35 in 98 for the jays. i guess they mean hermida could be the next shawn green...the early shawn green.

career highs for hermida this year in HRs and RBIs while posting a decent AVG and swiping 23 bags at double A. ;-D

his value this year in a re-draft league...hmmm...i would wait and see if he gets PT and how he does. francoeur came up and did great...andy marte didn't do so well...it's tough.

I would say that Lowell will be benched and move Cabrera to 3rd. I don't hink Hermida will play often though.

Once, but if you want to know who you'll have to play the trivia blitz as that's a current question on the clock...
