“I want to retire with this organization”: Gorkys Hernández loves being a Giant

And he’s hitting like one of those elusive free agent bats that never seem to want to come to the Giants.

We just debuted “McDeep Dive”, our new series that will spotlight one Giants player every day for a week. We’ll move backwards and forwards through time, look at on the field stuff, off the field stuff, and see if we can learn something new about them. Here’s part 2 of this week’s subject, Gorkys Hernández.

This one is a bit of cheat as below you can listen to NBC Sports’ Alex Pavlovic interview Gorkys Hernández for about 20 minutes. The McDeepness of this particular dive is that this is the first time he’s ever done an interview this long.

What you’ll hear is a lot of stuff about gratitude — he’s glad the Giants have given him this opportunity. You’ll also hear a lot about confidence — he’s not surprised by his performance, he expects this level of output.

And just to show that I’m not just plundering podcast content, here’s a YouTube video he did as a Pirate where he talks about the difference between American fans and Venezuelan fans. Venezuelans actually sound a lot like Americans.
