The 2013 Cleveland Indians will have a bunch of former Boston players on their roster to make Terry Francona feel comfortable. Of course, Justin Masterson was always one of his favorite players in the Hub, with other ex-Boston hurlers Matt Albers and Nick Hagadone also there. Tito has also collected Mike Aviles on the Tribe roster. Now, it appears the Indians have added yet another former Carmine Hoser—outfileder Jeremy Hermida. Hermida had a 52-game cup of Espresso Macchiato with the Red Sox, hitting just .203 with 5 HRs and 27 RBIs. Maybe he will thrive in The Mistake By The Lake under Tito's tutelage.
