Hermida Signs With Red Sox..

This is from the Boston Globe from yesterday with my thanks...

"The Red Sox today agreed to terms with outfielder Jeremy Hermida on a one-year, non-guaranteed contract for the 2010 season, thus avoiding salary arbitration. The sides agreed to a $3.345 million deal for 2010, a team source told the Globe's Amalie Benjamin. Hermida made $2.25 million last season. Hermida was seeking $3.85 million and the Red Sox had offered $2.95 million. In most of these cases the sides split the difference, which is what the Sox did here. Hermida, who turns 26 on Jan. 30, was acquired by the Red Sox from the Florida Marlins on November 5, 2009. The left-handed hitter batted .259 (111-for-429) with 13 home runs and 47 RBI over 129 games with the Marlins in 2009 and set a career high with 56 walks."

So once again Theo Epstein avoids any arbitration proceedings. His record is spotless. Hermida is the final piece of the 2010 Boston Red Sox. Now let's see them perform up to their capabilities. If they do, the sky's the limit. I like the sky!

OK, I have a treat for you...I just spent thirty minutes with the Boston Globe's "Touching All the Bases" 20 question multiple choice poll which has tremendous questions about the 2010 team. Simply click on this post's title and you'll be instantly teleported to that fun quiz. Beam me up, Spock. Enjoy and as always, BE WELL. I'll see ya soon. Have great Humpday Wednesday.
