Hitless Enrique Hernandez Reportedly Says Fans, Dodgers Lacked Energy in NLCS Game 3 Loss

The Dodgers are just two losses away from playing golf for the remainder of the postseason. A pathetic but familiar 4-0 shutout loss to the Brewers in game 3 of the NLCS on Monday night at Dodger Stadium has put them in a 2-1 series deficit. Jhoulys Chacin tossed 5.1 shutout innings and the Dodgers never were able to get anything going. The loss in game 3 dealt the club a series blow in their quest to win the World Series.

The Dodgers put a lot of traffic on base, but were unable to move runners over or get a hit with runners in scoring position. If this sounds like a familiar tune, that’s because the Dodgers have been playing this song all season in 2018. As a matter of fact, they’ve become grammy award winning artists. The lack of situational hitting music was blaring throughout Chavez Ravine on Monday night. The Dodgers stranded eight runners on base and were 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position in their game 3 defeat. That included leaving the bases loaded twice, one of those times in the bottom of the ninth inning. The Dodgers never scored.

After the game Dodger’s super utility, and banana man Enrique Hernandez had some pretty harsh words for the Dodgers and the fans. Hernandez has never been one to mince words. He’s an outspoken guy, and not afraid to speak his mind. That’s become loud and clear after he blocked the LADR twitter account in 2017.

So what did Kiki think about the Dodgers and the fans in game 3? Hernandez stated that the fans had no energy. Not only did the fans have no energy, but the Dodgers had no energy as well. According to Hernandez, they sucked. I can’t argue with Enrique on the last comment, but let’s take a look at how Hernandez has performed before he starts accusing the fans of having no energy.

Let’s see, (checks the books) Hernandez was 0 for 2, with a walk in game 1. He was 0 for 2 in game 2, and was 0 for 2 with a walk in game 3. Overall Hernandez is 0 for 6 in the series, and has yet to notch a base hit. I understand that Hernandez is looking for answers just like the rest of the Dodgers are. Perhaps he should try and filter his comments until he actually, oh I don’t know, gets a base hit in this series? Unless it’s all a typo, and we can blame Andy McCullough for the loss? I don’t know, just a thought. We now return you to our regularly scheduled October choke fest.

  1. Well, sorry Kiké. Hard to have any energy in the stands, when the offense flatlines. So far, three games, 81 outs, 65 by strikeout….what is that Kiké something like 80%? Pathetic. 0-10 RISP? The Dodgers need to give the fans something to cheer about. What are we supposed to do? Standing ovations and waves for every strikeout, and blown scoring opportunity?

    Do not disgrace the Dodger Uniform. Get out there on the field and give your pitchers some support. And please, do not blame the fans… they pay your bills. Never bite the hand that feeds you.

      1. Apology accepted, Kiké. Takes a real man to stand up and apologize. Very well said and True Blue to the heart. Things do get twisted in social media. I apologize for jumping the gun, and getting overexcited over words spoken in the moment of frustration and twisted by the media. Time for the Dodgers to step up, to leave it on the field, and not in the post-game clubhouse. Show your fans that you guys are for real.

  2. Well that was a pretty sad display of Major League Baseball by our Dodgers. They were outclassed, out hustled and all around out played by a team with heart and drive. This is 10000% on the players. Sure there could have been a few tweaks to the batting order but that truly didn’t make much difference in the overall outcome. Having GrandFall in the stadium pretty much sunk us from the beginning.

    I won’t condone Kike’s comments but in a sense he is kind of correct, even the fans were flat. But then again we didn’t have anything to get all slappy and happy about with that pathetic display put on by the players. Geez I hope we don’t even offer “The Smirk” a cup of coffee at the end of the season.

    If we pull this off I will truly be amazed, this team is just soooo unpredictable. Wait check that!!!! Yes they are extremely predictable. And we all know what parts of the game that they are so predictable, so I won’t rehash those issues ad nauseam.

    The look on Roberts face when things go shitty is absolutely hilarious. He has this “well that didn’t go as planned” deer in the headlights expression. He is getting out managed BIG TIME. Counsel has a game plan that is well thought out and goes right after our weaknesses. Roberts just doesn’t have the acumen to counter Counsel’s moves. But then again it’s THE PLAYERS that need to execute. Sometimes it’s like the players either don’t buy into the methods of Roberts and the FO or they just don’t give a shit!!!

    These are supposed to be the best of the best baseball players in the world, and in games like the NLCS the best need to step up. A truly good TEAM can cover their weaknesses with excellence. With these guys one fail all fail, one shine all shine. When things start to go bad with one player nobody seems to step up, grab the team by the bootstraps and overcome the weaknesses. A good part of that comes from true LEADERSHIP, which this organization lacks from head to toe. But at the end it’s the players who the playing and ultimately determine the outcome.

    Roberts needs to light a frikin fire under these under achievers, but then he just stands and/or sits there with that deer in the headlights look and says,

  3. Well it is game 4 and Gio is pitching for the Brewers who is left handed and now Roberts decides Kemp cannot play against him. You all can down me all you want but Kemp is being mistreated. There is absolutely no reason for him not to play. What is happening here is not good.
