    Reds Sign Jeremy Hermida to Minor League Deal, invited to ST

    According to Mark Sheldon via his blog.

    Wouldn't be a bad pick up. A minor league deal with an invite which is win-win in my opinion.

    Was once a really solid player. Still young.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I'm okay with this.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Hermida would make a nice platoon partner for Gomes, but certainly not a leadoff guy. Wouldn't complain at all.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I'm having a lot of trouble getting excited about this one. Slightly below average fielder, less than stellar OBP, and little power. Am I missing something? Post-hype sleeper?

    I saw Hermida first-hand in 2005 when he was a top prospect and wow, I was so excited. As we all know, he has fizzled out, but I still have some hope. I just don't know how a guy who was that good, one of the best I've seen in the minors, just become such a bust.

    It doesn't seem like a big deal to me either. Ya never know.

    Eh...he's no David DeJesus, but I think he's alright. There's one problem though, he'd be replacing Nix, not Gomes.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    It's about two years later than I wanted, but it's a guy I've wanted to see the Reds give a chance for a while now. He hasn't lived up to the hype, but I think this could end up being a huge bargain. It's certainly low risk.

    Re: Reds close on Jeremy Hermida

    Is there a clear winner for 5th OF between Hermida and Barton?

    If we are diving in the bargain bin, he's the one I would target.

    Walt's been searching for his next Ryan Ludwick. Hermedia is as close as he's come so far. Odds are he won't blossom like Ludwick, but he's definitely worth a minor league contract A lot of talent there.
