Christina Kahrl of Baseball Prospectus
made two very good points on the Hermida trade. The first is that the newly acquired outfielder has options remaining. Hence, Hermida can be the Sox expensive fifth outfielder in Pawtucket. This trade will not have much, if any impact on finding replacements for Jason Bay and Rocco Baldelli (a.k.a. a right-handed hitting platoon partner for J.D. Drew and a backup for Jacoby Ellsbury).

But it probably reduces the chance of the Sox acquiring Josh Johnson - my former trade target to be named later - as it frees up cash to sign him to a long-term deal. The top of the rotation starter and Hanley Ramirez can be on board when the Marlins open their new Park.
