Casting some of the vitriol away from the team
Hey, Angel Hernandez:
If you were watching last night’s broadcast on SNY, you heard Gary Cohen barely restraining himself from going off on 1st base ump Angel Hernandez. With perfect reason.
After Hernandez insufficiently called an out at 1st, Carlos Delgado seemed to offer a justified complaint. The camera then showed Hernandez cursing out Delgado, calling him a “piece of s**t,” when Hernandez was obviously the one in the wrong. Again.
Of course the Mets problems with Douchey Hernandez started back in 1998, when a blatantly wrong call ended an 11-inning battle vs. the Braves in their favor.
The ridiculousness continued in 2006, as reported by Matty, with completely inappropriate and unprofessional comments by Hernandez that led Lo Duca and Cliff Floyd to react visibly and vocally to not only his incompetence but also his lack of professionalism.
