2 of the biggest needs that Walt has been talking about is SS and a lead-off hitting LF. Thats where your choices of Fred Lewis and Scotty Pods come in. And instead we sign Jeremy Hermida. So much for wanting a lead-off hitting LF. Ya Hermida is only 26, but in my eyes he is another Johnny Gomes, he just plays better defense.
