The Marlins should try to get a young RF like Murton, Lane or Hawpe and stick Hermida in CF. He would be as good defensively as Amezaga, Ross or any of the other garbage the Marlins currently have for CF. All those teams need pitching and the Marlins have alot of extra SP in the minors to deal.

Bad Idea Here...

Especially since Hawpe and Murton are part of their organizations and they arent going anywhere, any time soon. I see Jones leaving Chicago long before Murton does, and Hawpe is a Rockie for the long-run.

Hermedia...Center Field...maybe on the road sometimes...but in PPS or DS...no shot.

Man, you guys are acting like Hermida is an old, broken down player. He's a kid and he's had all winter to recover. He is at least as good a fielder as anyone that played CF for the Marlins last season.

Well if Jeremy was a good fielder then Jeremy in CF and a combination of Alfredo, Cody and Joe in RF would be another option but Jeremy is NOT a good fielder. Keep Jeremy in RF.

it's not a bad idea, but putting an injury prone type in a position that requires a helluva lot of running doesnt make sense right now

If I had faith in Hermida in CF then I would say maybe platoon Cody & Borchard in RF. But I don't have that kind of confidence in Hermida as a CF. They can experiment with it all they want in ST though, just don't get him injured again.

The argument here is to play Hermida in CF and go get a new RF. Ross and Borchard belong on the bench. Ross is a career .220 hitter and Borchard is a .209 hitter.

A Ross/Borchard platoon would be nice

meanwhile, you dont put Hermida in CF. He is barely average in RF to begin with. Ad in his bad wheels/hip and that has all the makings of a disaster.

Please, I beg of your kind to learn the meaning of OBP and SLG, especially SLG when it comes to Borchard and Ross. There is more to offense than batting average.

As far obtaining a new RF, I don't see how a quality RF would be any easier to find than a quality CF. None of the potential RF mentioned are on the market. And even then, I would probably try one of them in CF before Hermida.

Ross career OPS is .697 and Borchard's is .648. Juan Pierre has a career OPS of .727 so there you go.

There's a reason I call the guy Hermierda. He's awful.

:lol

Give it a rest. The kid is just going to be 23 years old! He played injured last season. He'll improve. I see him putting up this line: .280/.360/.430
