Of platooning the OF

Looking at the following facts that (1) Pasta has not been terrible, (2) Brett at least shows a LOT in the ways of defensive skills, (3) Todd Linden is, in fact, an option off the bench, and (4) Cody Ross is supposed to return sometime... at what point do we do something about the black hole in right?

 

::cringes for onslaught of criticism that awaits for what amounts to "bad-mouthing" Hermida::

Josh Willingham is the left fielder btw. Hermida is in right.

 

You can sit him for a day or two once in a while to give him a rest but I wouldn't bench that kind of guy permanently.

 

Gotta let him try & hit his way through these things. We have to find out what we have there.

I was wondering why, because of a rough month, he wanted to do away with Willingham.

You are correct. Not sure what I was thinking when I typed it as left.

 

I agree we shouldn't do anything permanently, but damn.

 

Also, marlin nation I don't think he sucks in general. I just think he sucks right now!!!

He's still posting a league average OPS.

Hermida?

 

What's the league average OPS and what's his OPS? In the league average are you including pitchers?

 

.726 Hermida

 

.739 League (pitchers excluded)

After today's game Jeremy's OPS is .707.

 

I don't know how to get the OPS excluding pitchers but per ESPN the AL OPS is .757 and the NL OPS is .736. The AL OPS includes pitchers hitting in the NL park games and the NL OPS includes pitchers hitting in all games except the AL park games.

 

I think the MLB OPS excluding pitchers is probably around .765 which puts Jeremy about 60 points below the league average.

 

Do you have a link to the .739 (excluding pitchers)?

Does it really matter what Hermida's current OPS is? He he gets 2 hits or goes 0-4 it fluctuates 20 points because of his small AB size. Kid is struggling, when Cody gets back he'll prob sub in for left handers as that early split is really showing itself to be false after Maholm and Duke killed him.

 

Go check Hermidas Home/Road splits, and vs RHP, if you want to see what the problem is. Something is going to give eventually on those numbers. I'm hopeful in the positive direction.

I think you're imagining this .739 number.

 

I looked in baseball-reference and for OFs the average OPS so far this season is .767 which puts Jeremy 60 points below the average OF. The average for IFs is .754.

The .739 number is park adjusted based on Dolphins stadium.

So Dolphins Stadium hurts Hermida but not Mike Jacobs? Miguel Cabrera? Dan Uggla? Hanley Ramirez? Amusing.

 

It does hurt Jacobs. And Cabrera, Uggla and Hanley as well. That is because it is a pitchers park. It affects Jacobs and Hermida more because it supresses home runs for lefties more than it does for righties, mostly because the right field wall and power alley are among the furthest in the majors.

 

All of those guys would be better if they played in a park that leaned towards hitters more. That much is obvious. If you refuse to see that because of your blind hatred of Hermida, thats your problem.

Anyone ever notice that after seeing Pasta in CF Carroll looks like a strong defender in CF considering he has been playing the position for about 8 or 9 months tells you how bad Amezaga really is playing out there

 

Pasta is the worst nickname ever. I've never tasted alfredo pasta, maybe others have and if so please tell me about it. There is a delicious cheese sauze popular mostly in northern Italy called Alfredo sauce. Anyone familiar?

 

But in all seriousness, thats what happens when you put a middle infielder in CF.
