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.

Uh Oh. Happy Learned How To Putt

Introducing Chris Volstad.

He’s one of the Marlins top pitching prospects, and he’s just joined a pitching staff with Scotty Pimp, Ricky No-No, yet-to-be-nicknamed Andrew Miller and Kid Dynamite.

The first start of Volstad’s career? A ho-hum 8.2 innings, giving up just one run and striking out six.

Volstad was so impressive last night, Jeremy Hermida even decided to not suck for one at-bat. He hit a 2-run homer in the first inning to give the Marlins all the run support they would need. Cantu, though, wasn’t convinced, so he followed that with a homer of his own on the next at-bat, for good measure, as the Marlins cruised to a 3-1 win in L.A.

Hermida, who apparently swings a thermometer out there, now has 5 hits and 7 strikeouts in his last 40 at-bats. Impressive.

But the real story now, is the pitching. When the season started, nobody was sure if this team had even one legitimate starter. Now, halfway through the season, they’ve got 2 guys that can give you a good 7-innings almost every night, and 3 young guns that, by next year, could wind up being the new versions of Beckett, Penny and Willis in south Florida. (AJ who? Sorry, don’t remember him.) Oh, yea. And none of them are over the age of 25…

NL East, you’ve officially been put on notice.
