Luis Hernandez to be named starting SS

Color me, well, underwhelmed. Despite doing the best he could to play his way OUT of the job, Luis Hernandez is expected to be named the starting shortstop for your Baltimore Orioles.

From today's The (Baltimore) Sun:

Hernandez has hold on shortstop

O's play Fahey at third and left field, leaving Hernandez the probable starter at short

By Roch Kubatko

VIERA, Fla. - Orioles manager Dave Trembley is prepared to name Luis Hernandez as his Opening Day shortstop. Now Hernandez has to be prepared for the challenges that await him, the kind that could loosen his grip on the job if he's not careful.

Hernandez committed his sixth error today in the Orioles' 2-1 loss to the Washington Nationals at Space Coast Stadium. He fielded a routine grounder from Ronnie Belliard with two outs in the second inning and sailed his throw over Scott Moore's head at first base. Nationals players sitting on a bench beside the dugout scattered to avoid being hit.

Thanks for the details, Roch. Nice touch.

Dear God, Luis Hernandez is going to be our starting shortstop. I just can't wrap my head around the abysmal depths of suckitude that symbolizes concerning the state of the Orioles.

Can we petition to the commissioner's office to be relegated to the International League now?
