Gary Cohen, Keith Hernandez lose minds over Mets ‘stroking out’ comment in SNY booth

Things got weird in the Mets’ broadcast booth on Monday night during the team’s 11-5 win over the Padres in San Diego. With the Mets holding a 5-1 lead, second baseman Jeff McNeil led off the sixth inning with a single off pitcher Steven Wilson. Perhaps feeling the effects from the late start on the West Coast, announcers Gary Cohen and Keith Hernandez descended into hilarity, or perhaps delirium, when discussing the hit. “So here we are again, the Mets stroking out eight hits…” Hernandez began to say before Cohen interrupted him with laughter. “Did you say stroking out?” Cohen asked in disbelief. “Yes....

Mets broadcaster Gary Cohen parodied a Phillies fan pleading with his girlfriend

It’s been a difficult start to the season for Philadelphia Phillies fans, emphasized by a disappointing series against their division rival New York Mets over the weekend. While the worst part of their young season may have occurred Thursday night, when the Mets posted a seven-run ninth inning to complete a stunning come from behind win, the backend of their Mother’s Day doubleheader was no picnic either.

Mets broadcaster Gary Cohen murders Skyline Chili on live TV as Mets beat Reds in extras

On Monday night, the New York Mets and Cincinnati Reds played a wild one. Sending Jack Eickhoff and Vladimir Gutierrez to the mound at the Great American (hitter’s) Ballpark, perhaps that was to be expected, but no one could predicted what happened next. After the bottom of the first it was 3-0 Mets. After one it was 4-3 Reds. By the end of the second inning, the Mets’ Luis Guillorme, filling in for injured starting shortstop Francisco Lindor, had three errors to his name. It was a mess of a game that saw the Mets hit seven home runs, Edwin Diaz blow his third straight save, and the Reds’ Jonathan India reach base six times. It went 11 innings, lasted 4 hours and 45 minutes, and will likely go down as one of the weirdest games of the 2021 MLB season when all is said and done.
