I like Hermida's defense. I think it can make up a big chunk of the difference between his bat and the others listed. Plus he's been playing in a pitcher's park. I think he could easily be a more valuable player than Dye in 2009. And with the money saved, we can spend on something else and not be crippled for the future...
"On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."
