Just brutal to watch. And heroic, in some terribly pathetic way.
I mentioned this on Twitter, but Hernandez isn’t the first Mets’ middle infielder to suffer a season-ending injury on a home run. On Aug. 14, 1993, Tim Bogar injured his wrist sliding into home on an inside-the-park home run and was done for the year. It had been the game of Bogar’s life, incidentally — the inside-the-park job capped a two-double, two-homer day for the weak-hitting utility player.
