Hermida will be a steal. 27 year old former first round pick/highly thought of prospect who's put up serviceable numbers so far.

In that park...he'll break out. I've wanted the Cubs to make this deal for 2 years now.

Exactly the kind of move we heard last offseason was going to work out to be a bargain steal. See: Smoltz, Penny

Hermida is what he is. A 4th outfielder.

Probably not too many.

Now imagine if he was not as streaky as he has been his entire career. He might be 40 HR-120 RBI guy every year. Manny type numbers.

In each of his seven seasons, he has has wild month to month fluctuations. Last year in April, August and September, he would be worth every penny. From May through July, he was not even a .250 hitter. He slumped in late May to .264, but had a little power still. He then hit .230 in June and .192 in July with a combined 5 homeruns. That is his motus operandi for his entire career.

He is not like Teix a slow starter and then killer the last 5 months. He will hit .330 one month. Then .250 the next month. Only 3 months in his 7 year career did he see his BA rise/fall by 10 points in any given month. Most months his BA rise/fall by 20-50 points.

Monthly batting average? Really?
