Boston Red Sox outfielder Kiké Hernandez is always good for a little humor.
After several years as a backup with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Hernandez found a home with the Red Sox and is now one of their key players, slotting into the starting lineup as the team’s center fielder and leadoff man.
But aside from his play, there’s always that sense of humor that he brings with him.
On Sunday night, during the Red Sox game against their arch rival, the New York Yankees, Hernandez was mic’d up on the ESPN telecast.
When asked how the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry compares to that of the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers, Hernandez had an interesting, yet hilarious take.
Kiké Hernandez was wearing a mic for the ESPN broadcast of Red Sox-Yankees, and when asked how that rivalry compares to #Dodgers-Giants, answered: “Pretty similar, but colder.”

Kiké Keeping It Loose
Hernandez isn’t wrong.
Boston and New York have cooler weather in the spring than Los Angeles.
But aside from that, it’s nice that in the midst of the competition between the two fiercest rivals in all of baseball, Hernandez was still able to show off his sense of humor.
Hernandez is one of those guys whose style of play is electric, but he also brings a sense of levity to every clubhouse he’s a part of.
He keeps things loose and relaxed and seems like a fun guy to be around if you’re his teammate.
He certainly brought that to the table during Sunday night’s telecast on ESPN.
Sports are supposed to provide entertainment, but that doesn’t always have to be strictly from the competition.
Sometimes it can come from the players’ own sense of humor and willingness to keep everybody loose and relaxed.
Hernandez brings a lot to the table and he’s always good for a little humor.
