Marco Hernández

Bill James is high on this guy…

I am not sure I would trade the Red Sox’ Marco Hernandez for Jeter, Garciaparra, or Alex Rodriguez. I have been waiting since the opening day of spring training for Marco Hernandez to do something I wasn’t impressed with, and I’m still waiting. He is way faster than any of those guys.

But I’m not. He did make it up through the minors pretty quickly, which indicates there is maybe more than meets the eye, and he IS fast, but he strikes out too much and doesn’t really put good wood on the ball.
