Who does not like a good time at a baseball game? Apparently, Keith Hernandez. The New York Mets play-by-play broadcaster roasted a couple of SF Giants fans who were dancing on a boat out in McCovey Cove during Wednesday's 8-1 loss to the Mets.

Mets’ Keith Hernandez roasts Giants fans partying on a boat during game broadcast

McCovey Cove is no stranger to fun during baseball games. It is a spot where people take out their kayaks, hoping that a home run or even a foul ball might land out in the water. During the second half of Barry Bonds' career, McCovey cove would be filled with boats with the hopes of catching a historic home run.

The kayak population has declined quite a bit since then, but the fun continues. During Giants broadcasts, you will normally catch an interesting site or two out in the water. Perhaps, it is a party boat passing by or someone using a jetpack to hover over right over the water.

On Wednesday, it was more of the former. There was a group of people dancing out in McCovey Cove and having a good time. The Mets broadcast shifted their focus from the game to that. At that point, Keith Hernandez said in jest that the two people who were dancing out on the boat were not going to impress those around them.

Of course, the game was well out of reach at that point. The Mets were ahead by a score of 8-1 in the ninth inning, so the broadcast team decided to focus on something more entertaining.

The Giants won the series but dropped the finale. They did scratch one more run across the plate in the bottom of that ninth inning, but that turned out to be inconsequential.

Wednesday was an odd day for Giants baseball. Blake Snell was tabbed to start that game, but he landed on the injured list instead with an abductor strain. It was an unfortunate break for the two-time Cy Young winner because he had gotten off to such a slow start. He had allowed 15 earned runs in 11.2 innings before sustaining the injury.

The Giants hope that he will look more like he did in 2023 when he does return. In the meantime, the Mets had some fun in a game that proved to be mostly uneventful from San Francisco's standpoint.
