Don't count chad out

Marlins purchased the contract of outfielder Chad Hermansen from the Sioux Falls Canaries of the American Association.

Hermansen set Canaries single-season records for doubles (35) and runs scored (77). He led the American Association in doubles, extra-base hits (57), and slugging percentage (.579). Chad was second in the league in homers (19), third in runs scored, and fifth in RBI (72).

"Until I heard from the Marlins, it was stressful waiting to find out whether or not my numbers would be enough to get me an invite to Spring Training," noted Chad. "Now that I have the chance, I hope to stay healthy long enough to show the Marlins what I can bring to the table."

I don't think Hermansen's going to bring much to the table, except strikeouts. But I'd like to see him salvage something of a career. Hard to believe he's not even 30 years old.
