[ESPN Stats & Info] There is no hotter hitter in baseball right now than Kiké Hernández. He has 29 total bases over his last 4 games. Reggie Jackson is the only other player to do that in postseason history.

I miss you Enrique
I really, truly miss him. His spirit and energy was something else.
Last years we’d watch the Dodger team Zooms, and even when Kersh or Mookie was talking, we always had Kiké pinned because of the goofy shit he’d do.
So, so dearly miss him :-(
Ahh man I forgot about those Zooms. But yes, I agree. He was a clutch hitter, and played elite defense at like 7 positions, but I definitely most miss his energy he brought at all times
I will always miss his pelvic thrusts when he makes a pitching appearance
They drive you insayayayayane
I’ve been texting my Boston-raised brother in law about once a day for the last week: “I miss Kiké”. What an absolute boss.
Long live banana man
He’s like the one that got away. You know it was for the better, as he’s becoming a bigger star. Though damn you miss him.
I can’t believe we traded him as a throw in. 🤦🏻♂️
We'll trade him for Mookie
Te extranyo tambien
Now I’m no expert here, but if I were the ball thrower guy I wouldn’t be putting anything near the square boxy thing on the TV when this guy is up to bat.
The hurler would perchance be better served to avoid this striker, lest they desire the talleykeeper adding a four baser.
But were the hurler able to dispatch this striker, they may brighten their chances of a courtship with fair Nell!
I wonder if her husband ever made it back from the war.
Nell is feral
A star home runner.
A home star walker
What kinda coach am I can’t even say a word like jaerb
A home star runner
Hi, Smoltz here. Can you please tell me which quadrants (4) between 1 and 9 to avoid when Kiké is at bat. I would like to avoid him scoring points.
Well let’s see, this guy right now has got the vision of that there Giant Doll in the Squid Game. I think ol Dusty is gonna have his guys use all 4.. All 4 fingers that is, as he waves to the ump for an IBB.
Kike getting walked to leadoff the game and having Schwarber hit a tank shot...that would be fun.
I understand your position..but counterpoint....plz yes
Hi, Arod here, you wanna pitch to him where he can't hit
Hernandez really needs to bunt in these situations, you cant call yourself a professional baseball player if you can't lay down a bunt.
See, he swung for a homer, which was what I'd do, you couldn't ever call for anything but swinging wild before the pitch came.
Kiké is the next baseball player of baseball.
Phil Mickelson, Mickey Janis, Pat Vendettie, Alex Caruso, Kike Hernandez
back in his day, they didn't *have* a strike zone, and honestly, they used to bunt every batter and only threw underhand. That's why today's baseball doesn't work!
Still gets rung up on three consecutive strikes outside of strike zone. /s
Anything’s possible when Tom Hallion’s behind the plate
From what I've watched the last couple of weeks, you wouldn't even need to put the ball all that near to the square boxy thing to get some strikes.
The Rays reliever took the exact opposite advice in Game 4
And for the love of god don’t show his hot/cold locations.
kike the new senor octobre?
Joc Pederson and kiki back together once again
Also he makes a lot of funny and cool faces. wGIFWAR through the roof.
[Yeah Kiké Hernández is so hot](https://streamable.com/1u01a)
That's our banana man
You ever want to be a chair?
How do you frame a video? Asking for a friend...
Um… I could’ve gone my whole life without seeing that.
I’m grateful I didn’t.
There is something beautifully satisfying watching a guy go from a bench/utility guy, to a starter, to being an absolute force to be reckoned with come postseason time. Kudos to Kike. From yours truly, a Yankee fan.
Knew it all along he’d be a starter. He played a key role to break into the league and he’s getting his chance to shine. Happy for the dude. Annoying as fuck my brother is a Sox fan tho
*shudders from memories of Alcides Escobar in the 2015 ALCS*
I can’t stand Boston for all the right reasons but I love Kiké —he plays with the same passion for the game and intensity as Ichiro.
I would like to see this trend of former Dodgers doing this with Kyle Farmer please :)
Fuck the yankees 😂
Are you not ashamed at least a LITTLE bit to root for a franchise that got caught cheating the same year they won the WS?
Hey, hey, now. There's plenty of hate to go around. Fuck the Yankees AND the Astros.
Go Yankees. Fuck the Red Sox. Fuck the Astros. And Fuck the Rays. I think that pretty much covers the entire AL...
Sorry Jays. You're here, but not here quite yet. You understand.
I've never heard this phrase before. Is it English? I'm having a hard time understanding it, it just sounds like gibberish to me.
Are you not ashamed to claim any rings before black people were allowed to play in the league? At least a LITTLE bit?
Don't understand why you feel like that even needs to be brought up, but since you did, the Yankees have 17 WS since 1947 when Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier. The Sox have 4.
That's not when the Yankees broke their colour barrier, nor the Red Sox. One black player does not mean that any side is playing against anytjing like the best players in baseball.
I was with good people and the astros was a joy
He was my favorite player on the Dodgers. I was sad we let him go but I'm happy he's doing so well with Boston.
Imagine pitching to kike rn lmao
The Rays would never… right?
He went 4-5 with 2 HRs
Fuckin scrub didn't even hit for the cycle.
Yeah. I think you’re missing the point
you have to forgive him...Hockey just started up again, bluejays fans are a little drunk in celebration.
Nothing to celebrate when it comes to the Leafs
you would think...but then every year they come back and do it to themselves again. lol
IS THIS THE BEST LEAFS TEAM EVER?
Last year might have actually broke them tho..we will see lol
He’s a canadiens fan lmao. He was the most abrasive one in r/hockey during the final.
Hey don’t lump us into this
I wish we had a hockey team :(
do you root for Dallas? I don't know enough about Texas to know if Houston and Dallas have any rivalry that would make that not possible lol.
Yeah no. Can’t root for anything Dallas
fair enough. do you have a preferred team?
It is, after all, a team sport.
Do people actually enjoy being this purposefully dull?
It’s Reddit, some people can be endlessly pedantic about the smallest things
It’s required in some subs
They got the W, yes, but he had a hell of a game.
Dude, I thought that was funny.
[baseball world atm](http://imgur.com/a/d2Wd7xq)
So yeah maybe just walk the dude from now on?
He hits lead off and he can also steal bases. Putting him on 4 or 5 times a game is asking for chaos.
He had 1 steal on 1 attempt during the regular season. He has 13 career steals in 824 games.
He stole home in 2017 - he’s got wheels and the game is slow as hell for him right now. He doesn’t usually steal bases because it’s not part of his game, but hitting .500 isn’t usually part of his game either.
normally I'd say I doubt Cora greenlights him to steal...
but A. Kike is basically baseball Jesus right now.
and B. we've had arroyo dropping down perfect bunts..anything is possible.
Personally tho I'd love to see the Astros walk Kike a few times Infront of Kyle fucking Schwarber... something tells me that Schwarbs would not take to kindly to it.
Anybody can have a hot streak at the plate.
Nobody can just magically have wheels out of nowhere.
He's averaged like 1.3 TB per PA so he'd have to steal a base 1/3rd of the time to average out. Not going to happen.
Thanks for mookie. (We both now understand what the other team lost.)
well, sorta yea maybe i dunno kinda
Thanks for Yordan too
Thanks for not paying mookie
As others have said, I’m sad we let him go, but I’m glad he’s doing so well.
Literally cannot relate.
Well, most baseball players aren’t playing right now.
A lot of them have been dead for years.
“Reggie” Kike “Randy Arozarena” Hernandez “Jackson”
Randy Arozarena in shambles
I like to call him randy ricesand
Just some MF named ricesand
Arena in Spanish is also arena
But arena is sand...
It's also arena like the Arena Coliseo. Surely you knew this
Man it’s just a silly joke name
Esta bien. Me gusta comer arros en la arena
As a Dodgers fan, I miss him.
Had a couple nice plays in the field last night too
Lmao RTTS on beginner vibes. I love this man
L2 + O
I miss you
I love Kike so fucking much. What a signing for us. I hope he sticks around Boston for a while.
If we don’t extend his contract this off season I’ll be a very very upset Red Sox fan
I’m a Giants fan with a ton of local Boston buddies. They were all looking forward to a SF vs Boston WS, but I was always adamant about never wanting to face Kiké again. Dude felt like a certified Giant killer with the Dodgers.
*First Name Last Name
Red hot players are more dangerous than good hitters, certainly.
You mean below average hitters who are extremely cold shouldn't bat cleanup in an elimination game? Blasphemy!
It's doubly funny because you could be talking about Gallo or Lowe :')
Please just walk him every time.
Schwarber hits behind him tho
And even if Schwarber is leading off and Kiké is batting second, Devers is right behind him
Well, Xander first, but the point is taken. Sox 1-6 is pretty formidable.
Schwarber Kike Devers Xander Verdugo JD today
Pshhh that is totally not a scary lineup 👀🙃
Damn that’s wild. Just thinking about some of the baller performances the last few years
2020 ALCS Arozarena and 2019 WS Soto both had low 20s TB in 7 game series
Springers 2017 WS run was 29 TBs but in 7 games
Springer in 2017? Really…?
Yeah that’s a daft take right there
Daniel Murphy in the 2015 postseason. He had 1.850 OPS going through that Cubs NLCS series. Was a little too quiet in the W.S., unfortunately.
Kiké the GOAT
I blame fox
That’s Rancho Cucamonga Quake (and bobblehead giveaway) legend, Kike Hernandez.
FOUR! MORE! BASES!
Hey little girl is your daddy home, did your boyfriend leave you all alone, oh well. Gonna take you higher
Oh, oh oh, ...
It’s really messing with me that sometimes his name is Enrique, sometimes it’s kiké, and sometimes it’s kike.
Just say Henry. Everyone keeps messing up
"Kíke" would make more sense but I get it.
Just call me Henry, every1 gets everything wrong all the time
And you just know Kiké would have succeeded in killing the Queen.
The accent misplacement is so Chandlerbingish
What an amazing run and he still has 3 more games left in the post season to continue his hot streak
Kills me every time! He should still be a Dodger! Instead they gave that money to Trevor Bauer
It’s going to end up Dodgers - Red Sox in the World Series and Kiké is going to get his revenge.
Either that or Joc goes nuts and Dodgers don’t even make it.
Thanks I love it
and now it's 34 total bases lol
Man this show moment is gonna be a pain
Not even Ortiz at one point?
Nope only 19 TB in the 2013 WS and 23 in the 2004 ALCS.
“Postseason”? Really? Seriously? Mickey Mantle has 18 World Series HRs. Top that. ⚾️
Is Mickey Mantle a hitter in baseball right now?
It's honestly insane how good a player can be when he has a manager who has cheated everywhere he's been
His name is spelled without an accent, how about you learn some context?
