Your Daily Dose of Hermida Sucktitude

Posted in Florida Marlins, Houston Astros, Jeremy Hermida Was Definitely Picked Last In Kickball, Recaps on August 12, 2009 by Adam Smoot

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.
