Keith Hernandez pleads with SNY to keep him from calling Phillies-Mets games because he doesn’t like the Fightins fundamentally and defensively
SNY broadcaster for the New York Mets Keith Hernandez was talking out of his ass last night and decided to throw out a ridiculous statement on the reasoning behind him not wanting to call games against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Hernandez stated that he doesn’t like watching the Phillies play baseball.
“As far as fundamentally and defensively, the Phillies have always been just not up to it.”

Well, where do we even begin?
First, it took this old bag of milk nearly a minute to even get his dumb statement out of his mouth. I barely made it through the video without falling asleep on my keyboard.
Secondly, how pathetic can Keith Hernandez be? You don’t want to do your job and call games against the New York Mets division rival? What a lazy bag of shit.
Apparently, Hernandez doesn’t realize that the Philadelphia Phillies are actually fifth in fielding percentage in the entire MLB. Hernandez also doesn’t realize that the Phillies have committed the second least number of errors in the entire MLB.
So those are pretty interesting stats for someone who doesn’t like to watch a division rival play baseball because they lack fielding and fundamentals aren’t they?
Yes, I realize the Mets are playing great baseball this season and currently hold a 10 game advantage over the Phillies in the NL East Standings but please, lets not pretend they are some powerhouse baseball franchise. They have won a total of two World Series Championships (1969 and 1986) and five National League pennants.
The Philadelphia Phillies also have two World Series titles (1980 and 2008) and have won seven National League pennants. They are the oldest, continuously run, single-name, single-city franchise in American professional sports.
The New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies will have played each other over 1,000 in the regular season. The Philadelphia Phillies hold a slim lead of 539–508 over the New York Mets
So I don’t know, maybe Keith Hernandez should just shut the fuck up?
Seems like a reasonable request for a mouth breathing blob that runs his mouth in the broadcast booth and will say anything to avoid doing his job on a nightly basis.
The Phillies will play the Mets seven times over the next two weeks and thankfully, it looks like Hernandez won’t be embarrassing himself in the broadcast booth during either series.
