Jeremy Hermida RIP
At the game the other night a buddy asked what had happened to Jeremy Hermida, who seemed to have vanished from BoSox box scores. Well, he’s in Oakland, where he’s batting .196 for the year, .154 since joining the A’s 11 games ago. Remember 2005 – a grand slam in his first Big League at bat with the Marlins, only the second person in history to do that. He’s a mere 26 – a cautionary tale, perhaps, as we look at young prospects filled with hope.
