Peter Gammons Dishes on Bill James’ Predictions, Jeremy Hermida’s Role

Peter Gammons Dishes on Bill James' Predictions, Jeremy Hermida's Role Peter Gammons spoke with Tom Caron on Sunday morning’s edition of Red Sox Spring Break Live, taking a look at Bill James‘ predictions for the Red Sox offense.

Most notable was the projection of Jeremy Hermida to hit 20 home runs. The youngster, whose total was projected over a full season’s worth of at-bats, was acquired from the Florida Marlins earlier in the offseason in a move with “nothing to lose” for the Red Sox, according to Gammons.

“That was a great buy-low situation,” Gammons suggested. “The Red Sox could afford to take on the contract.”

Check out the other predictions — and Gammons’ response to them — in the video below.
