Your Daily Dose of Hermida Sucktitude

Astros Marlins Baseball

The Marlins won 9-8 on a Dan Uggla single in extra innings, they extended their winning streak to five straight and find themselves 3.5 out of first place in the NL East. But none of that is as even remotely as entertaining as Jeremy Hermida getting thrown out on a play he had no business even being a part of.

In the 10th inning, with the two out and the game tied, Emilio Bonifacio smoked a ball to left field, where the outfielder was playing about six steps off the dirt. Hermida came full speed from second and headed home… even though the ball was already back at the plate. Whether he got the signal to keep chugging or he decided to do it himself is not the important part. What’s important is that we all got to witness the epic failure that is Jeremy Hermida.

  1. Bo Porter sent him, and Hermida (not defending him) did what he was told. I’m sure we’d be looking this at a whole different way if Hermida is not sent, stays at 3rd and a throw is air-mailed to the plate. Not a horrible play to try and win it but I think Porter is as big of a loser in this case as Hermida. With Coghlan on deck, I would have left Hermida at 3rd and took my chances. We won anyway so who cares!

  4. Hey wtf! I just find this blog to find that you haven’t posted since August? I’m guessing you’re waiting till the start of the season (at least i hope its that and not that you’re writing somewhere or else, or killed yourself). And make more t-shirts! I want in on that
