On the day after the World Series ended, the Red Sox went right to work in this offseason, acquiring outfielder Jeremy Hermida from the Marlins. Hermida is a solid outfielder with a good, healthy bat. Hermida was one of the players that the Red Sox were trying to acquire in a trade for Manny Ramirez in the summer of '08, instead they got Jason Bay. Hermida is only 25, but he still has had some very good seasons, as in this season his line was .259, 13, 47 but the outfielder has had better years, like in '07 his line was .296, 18, 63. His numbers have much remained the same since then, except for his average, as from '07 to '08 it dropped .047 points in a disappointing season. I think that Hermida was a bargain for the Red Sox, as he is a good hitter, but he has not come into his own quite yet. This is the beginning of an interesting offseason for Boston.
