Does this make any sense at all? If I were the BoSox I'd love to have Hermida's bat (and future) in Fenway and would figure that Willingham may not have much value, but even so has more value after this season than Manny.
The Marlins probably figure that Willingham will be gone next year, and that Maybin will be in center with Ross and Hermida at the corners. And Josh ain't exactly tearing up the league here lately.
Manny would get the Marlins lots of local attention, and fill some seats over the next couple of months.
If they do the deal, I hope its for Willingham, not Hermida.
