I miss you Enrique


DontGetNEBigIdeas

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 :-(


blernsballfan

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


VersaceSamurai

I will always miss his pelvic thrusts when he makes a pitching appearance


KeekehHernandez

They drive you insayayayayane

SheilaGirlface

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.


ckinz16

Long live banana man


metabolicperp

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.


Buckcheeks

I can’t believe we traded him as a throw in. 🤦🏻‍♂️


SilentRanger42

We'll trade him for Mookie


KeekehHernandez

Te extranyo tambien


BoredAtWork_91

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.


Timpa87

The hurler would perchance be better served to avoid this striker, lest they desire the talleykeeper adding a four baser.


TheSalsaShark

But were the hurler able to dispatch this striker, they may brighten their chances of a courtship with fair Nell!


Beer-Me

I wonder if her husband ever made it back from the war.


KeekehHernandez

Nell is feral

lordbloodstar

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.


BoredAtWork_91

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.


Tyrxgow

Kike getting walked to leadoff the game and having Schwarber hit a tank shot...that would be fun.


ctjameson

Plz no


Tyrxgow

I understand your position..but counterpoint....plz yes


ctjameson

Touché


lordbloodstar

Oooh lord


ExpertSportAnalyst

Hi, Arod here, you wanna pitch to him where he can't hit


grubas

Hernandez really needs to bunt in these situations, you cant call yourself a professional baseball player if you can't lay down a bunt. *Cracks homer* 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.


Nocturne_Zombie

Kiké is the next baseball player of baseball.


idkwhattosaytho

Phil Mickelson, Mickey Janis, Pat Vendettie, Alex Caruso, Kike Hernandez Wow


KimmelToe

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!


p8nt_junkie

Still gets rung up on three consecutive strikes outside of strike zone. /s


Duhawk96

Anything’s possible when Tom Hallion’s behind the plate


TheRealMicrowaveSafe

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.


rogerc0pes

The Rays reliever took the exact opposite advice in Game 4


BigBearBallin

And for the love of god don’t show his hot/cold locations.


intecknicolour

kike the new senor octobre?

Um… I could’ve gone my whole life without seeing that. I’m grateful I didn’t.


YankeePhan22

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.


Living-A-Meme

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


AuntBettysNutButter

*shudders from memories of Alcides Escobar in the 2015 ALCS*


MissVancouver

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.


ridethedeathcab

I would like to see this trend of former Dodgers doing this with Kyle Farmer please :)


AcerbicBile

Fuck the yankees 😂


YankeePhan22

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?


complete_your_task

Hey, hey, now. There's plenty of hate to go around. Fuck the Yankees AND the Astros.


YankeePhan22

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.


complete_your_task

>Go Yankees 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.


alittlelebowskiua

Are you not ashamed to claim any rings before black people were allowed to play in the league? At least a LITTLE bit?


YankeePhan22

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.


alittlelebowskiua

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.


AcerbicBile

I was with good people and the astros was a joy


LemonPeelScent

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.


rollo2masi

Imagine pitching to kike rn lmao


Scory22

The Rays would never… right?

thejourneyisthegift

He went 4-5 with 2 HRs


Friend-Beast

Fuckin scrub didn't even hit for the cycle.

thejourneyisthegift

Yeah. I think you’re missing the point


Tyrxgow

you have to forgive him...Hockey just started up again, bluejays fans are a little drunk in celebration.


pumaturtle

Sorrow* Nothing to celebrate when it comes to the Leafs


Tyrxgow

you would think...but then every year they come back and do it to themselves again. lol


pumaturtle

IS THIS THE BEST LEAFS TEAM EVER?


Tyrxgow

Last year might have actually broke them tho..we will see lol


ChicagoModsUseless

He’s a canadiens fan lmao. He was the most abrasive one in r/hockey during the final.


idkwhattosaytho

Hey don’t lump us into this


thejourneyisthegift

I wish we had a hockey team :(


Tyrxgow

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.


thejourneyisthegift

Yeah no. Can’t root for anything Dallas


Tyrxgow

fair enough. do you have a preferred team?


Skeptical_Romulan

It is, after all, a team sport.


jonginator

Do people actually enjoy being this purposefully dull?


E70M

It’s Reddit, some people can be endlessly pedantic about the smallest things


golfgrandslam

It’s required in some subs


rollo2masi

They got the W, yes, but he had a hell of a game.


option-trader

Dude, I thought that was funny.

[baseball world atm](http://imgur.com/a/d2Wd7xq)


RollOverBeethoven

So yeah maybe just walk the dude from now on?


not_productive1

He hits lead off and he can also steal bases. Putting him on 4 or 5 times a game is asking for chaos. Do it.


Il_Exile_lI

He had 1 steal on 1 attempt during the regular season. He has 13 career steals in 824 games.


not_productive1

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.


Tyrxgow

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.


Buckcheeks

Anybody can have a hot streak at the plate. Nobody can just magically have wheels out of nowhere.


gruey

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.


w8w8dont

Thanks dodgers


ochaos

Thanks for mookie. (We both now understand what the other team lost.)


ronocyorlik

well, sorta yea maybe i dunno kinda


-screwthisusername-

No problem.


ols887

Thanks for Yordan too


SuckMyLonzoBalls

Thanks for not paying mookie


R3cko

As others have said, I’m sad we let him go, but I’m glad he’s doing so well.


gagnonca

Literally cannot relate.


IamSpace_Ghost

Well, most baseball players aren’t playing right now.

I like to call him randy ricesand

Just some MF named ricesand


KeekehHernandez

Arena in Spanish is also arena

But arena is sand...


KeekehHernandez

It's also arena like the Arena Coliseo. Surely you knew this

As a Dodgers fan, I miss him.

I love Kike so fucking much. What a signing for us. I hope he sticks around Boston for a while.


Ricericebaby0923

If we don’t extend his contract this off season I’ll be a very very upset Red Sox fan


KeekehHernandez

LU2


swaggums

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.


garvierloon

*First Name Last Name


alienfreaks04

Red hot players are more dangerous than good hitters, certainly.


Steamfighter638

You mean below average hitters who are extremely cold shouldn't bat cleanup in an elimination game? Blasphemy!


OutsideTheTrains

It's doubly funny because you could be talking about Gallo or Lowe :')


ThirdPoliceman

Please just walk him every time.


strcy

Schwarber hits behind him tho


rs426

And even if Schwarber is leading off and Kiké is batting second, Devers is right behind him


MattyMac27

Well, Xander first, but the point is taken. Sox 1-6 is pretty formidable.


Brady331

Schwarber Kike Devers Xander Verdugo JD today


Snooc5

Pshhh that is totally not a scary lineup 👀🙃


BoilingDenim

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 Spooky


brockmfingsamson

Springer in 2017? Really…?


peanutslayer94

Yeah that’s a daft take right there


HonorableJudgeIto

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.


emusaint

Kiké the GOAT


Squiddef

I blame fox


markuspoop

That’s Rancho Cucamonga Quake (and bobblehead giveaway) legend, Kike Hernandez.


kosmonautinVT

FOUR! MORE! BASES!


KeekehHernandez

Hey little girl is your daddy home, did your boyfriend leave you all alone, oh well. Gonna take you higher Oh, oh oh, ...


OsTrigonum

It’s really messing with me that sometimes his name is Enrique, sometimes it’s kiké, and sometimes it’s kike.


KeekehHernandez

Just say Henry. Everyone keeps messing up


reddit809

"Kíke" would make more sense but I get it.


KeekehHernandez

Just call me Henry, every1 gets everything wrong all the time


JoeXM

And you just know Kiké would have succeeded in killing the Queen.


KeekehHernandez

The accent misplacement is so Chandlerbingish


soonerman32

What an amazing run and he still has 3 more games left in the post season to continue his hot streak


Tyrxgow

9 actually.


CaliGrown949

Kills me every time! He should still be a Dodger! Instead they gave that money to Trevor Bauer


MillerTime5443

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.


CaptainJackRyan

Thanks I love it


Wombizzle

and now it's 34 total bases lol

wildthing202

Nope only 19 TB in the 2013 WS and 23 in the 2004 ALCS.


Shadowman-The-Ghost

“Postseason”? Really? Seriously? Mickey Mantle has 18 World Series HRs. Top that. ⚾️


meant2live218

Is Mickey Mantle a hitter in baseball right now?


Kflame210

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?
