Should Jeremy Hermida make the opening day roster?

Things aren't always that simple.

 

I wish you would have at least put this in the context of what I posted this morning, but that's your choice.

Well even strictly on past and current performance, I think if Sanchez wins the CF job, which looks highly likely, that Borchard deserves a roster spot over Hermida. Based on that and that alone is why he should not be there. If he makes the roster and Borchard does not, I will be pissed off.

 

I put it in context just a little bit but its still a straightforward question as Sanchez appears to be the front runner right now.

Of course.

 

Besides who else are you going to put out there? We don't have a glut of talented outfielders last time I checked.

 

 

I'm a big Borch supporter for CF but there's no way I'd start him over Hermida. Not at this point anyway.

 

Borchard over Hermida in right any day of the week. What has Hermida done to prove he's better than Borchard?

Oh lord....some of your people are hyping Borchard....it's hilarous. This is the 2007 version of Reggie Abercrombie. Borchard is a career .209 hitter- Hermida has more skills than Borchard has ever dreamed about.

Enlighten me. What has he done to prove that?

Well, he totally dominated the minors in 2005, and he was hurt all of last season. He gets the benefit of the doubt, if nothing else.

Hermida's career batting average in the minors is .283, Borchard's is .272. While I cannot argue that Hermida had the better year in the minors in 2005 when he hit .293, Borchard had a pretty damn good year too as he hit .263 for the Charlotte Knights.

So they're pretty close. I'm more or less disproving WildMarlinMan's theory that Borchard can't hit.

The thing I love about this is that it disregards age, pedigree or caveats that affected the previous year's performance.

 

Hermida's only 23, has proven that he can hang at this level (see his '05 performance since so many are jumping on the Alex Sanchez "career" bandwagon). Besides, name me one player who has a legit long-term future with this club that Hermida is blocking

Hermida should be our Opening Day RF

 

 

Its not like we have a storage bin with great outfielders in the basement at Dolphins Stadium.

 

 

If he starts the season 4-70 then yeah, it's time to go "WTF" and start looking at other short term options till he gets his head straight.

 

 

Hermida is slightly overrated IMO but he's clearly our RF'r right now.

The season really needs to start already. These threads are getting tedious.

Jeremy will be fine. He should start.

In the long run he'll probably turn out to have a better career than Willingham.

He can actually play defense. He runs well. He hits and hits for power.

I read absolutely nothing into spring training.

I do think that he may have mentally suffered from being the underachieving rookie on last year's team of full of overacheiving rookies.

Just let him hit .270 in April and he'll be fine.
