Phil Mushnick killed Mets homer and short term memory impaired Gary Cohen

Mets voice has opposite takes on HRs

Sunday, the Tigers took a 1-0 lead against the Mets when Nicholas Castellanos hit an opposite-field home run that didn’t look as if it would carry that far. On Channel 11, Gary Cohen was appalled:

“The ball keeps flying out of the ballpark to the opposite field. … How many routine fly balls to right can we see from right-handed hitters’ bats before Major League Baseball does something about the baseball? This is crazy!”

Keith Hernandez soon added there’s “no longer anything special about home runs.”

Agreed, and with the accent on greed.

However, in the fourth, after the Mets’ Adeiny Hechavarria, hitting .167, did the same as Castellanos — hit an opposite-field home run to right on a ball that carried suspiciously far — Cohen was not at all appalled. He was pumped:

“Second opposite-field, three-run homer in this series for Adeiney Hechevarria! And the Mets lead it, 4-3!”

Guess it all depends.
