Weekend Update Marcello Hernández on the MLB Playoffs

Colin Jost

Marcelo Hernandez

[Starts with Colin Jost in his set]

Colin Jost: Major League Baseball season wrapped up this week and the playoffs are underway. Here to give us his thoughts is new SNL cast member Marcelo Hernandez.

[Marcelo Hernandez slides in] [cheers and applause]

Marcelo Hernandez: Yes, thank you. Thank you, New York. Thank you, Colin.

Colin Jost: What’s up Marcelo? So are you a baseball fan?

Marcelo Hernandez: Well, Colin, you know, my mom is from Cuba. And my dad is from the Dominican Republic. So obviously, they’re divorced. But it also means I love baseball. You know, Latinos dominate baseball. And I’m not saying we’re naturally better. I’m just saying we’re more fun to watch. I mean, who would you rather watch play baseball? Tanner from Kentucky, or a guy that they call Papi and no one knows why. This guy got so good at his job, everyone started calling him Dad. Like Colin, has anybody here ever called you, daddy?

Colin Jost: I’d rather not say. What about like Aaron Judge? Right? He just hit his 62nd home run, set the AL record

Marcelo Hernandez: Yeah, I think it’s impressive, Colin, but there just wasn’t enough emotion for me. He hits his 62nd home run, puts the bat down gently. And then it’s a couple of high fives and straight to the dugout. When a Dominican guy hits a homerun Colin, he throws the bat to a different dimension. And once he gets the home plate, he thanks everyone he’s ever encountered. He’s like “Thank you to my mother and my sister and my father and that one guy from that day I beat up that one time.” Everything changes when they bring out the Dominican guy. The American announcer who’s been speaking English the whole game gets an accent all of a sudden. Now this guy named Jeff is like, “A now coming to the plane, frrrom San Do-Do-Diego, Starling Marte.” Cue the Merengue music. Even the white guys in the crowd are like, “To-go-to-go-tinga tanka kung kang.” Then this guy comes up and he pulls a chain out of nowhere. He tells the pitcher to relax. And then he brings Jesus into it, he’s like “In the name of the Father and…” And then once he gets to batting, Colin it’s all hips. Do you feel that Colin?

Colin Jost: I’m pretty sure it feel it, yeah.

Marcelo Hernandez: Everyone in the crowd is pregnant by the time he’s done back. And the postgame interviews are different Colin. white guys are so boring. They’re always talking about the game. It’s like we had a game plan and we executed it.

Colin Jost: But I bet Latin guys do a different?

Marcelo Hernandez: Don’t do that, Colin. I don’t like that. But yes, it is very different. After a baseball game, Latin guys, if they do get a sentence off in English, it’s not about the game. The reporter is like “What was going through your head on that 3-2 slider? And then Ramon is like, “Man, I love Miami man. The weather, the people, the food is amazing.” Have you noticed Colin, they really only speak English until they lose patience. You know? You ask them a loaded question and they go, “Well, for the song, I think that—” [starts speaking Spanish aggressive]

Colin Jost: Marcelo Hernandez, everyone.

Marcelo Hernandez: Thank you.

Colin Jost: For Weekend Update, I’m Colin Jost.

[Dr. Oz is showing his five fingers.] A review of scientific studies published by Dr. Oz [picture changes to an article that says “Experiments kill over 300 dogs”] revealed that his experiments killed over 300 dogs, but eventually he got the recipe right. [picture changes to a box of Dr. Oz’s meatballs] Dr. Oz has refused to comment on the report that his research killed over 300 Dogs, though it’s possible he couldn’t hear the question over the woodchipper.

But don’t worry. Dr. Oz won everybody back last night when he gave his speech in front of Hitler’s car. Worse, He then got into the car and backed over a dog.

[Cut to Michael Che. There’s a picture of Herschel Walker at right top corner.]

Michael Che: Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker denied reports that he paid for a girlfriend’s abortion saying “I sent money to a lot of people” before adding “You know, for abortions.” After news broke that Walker paid for his ex girlfriend’s abortion, he raised more than $500,000 because dollars are the only thing Walker is willing to raise.

[Cut to Colin Jost. There’s a picture of Joe Biden at left top corner.]

[Cut to Joe Biden’s speech opening]

Joe Biden: I’m gonna start off with two words – “Made in America”.

Colin Jost: Wow, well let me respond with two words, Jesus H Christ. Biden was then heard criticizing reporters at the White House for shouting questions at him, questions like “What year is it?” and “Who’s the current president?” Also they weren’t reporters, they were doctors.

[Cut to Michael Che. There are picture of Kanye West and Tucker Carlson at right top corner.]

Michael Che: Kanye West appeared on Tucker Carlson show to defend wearing a white lives matter shirt claiming he wore the shirt because he was using a gut instinct. But what he’s definitely not using are the meds prescribed to him.

[Cut to Colin Jost. There’s an article that says “Pilot draws queen portrait with flight path” at left top corner.]

Colin Jost: A British pilot created the largest ever portrait of Queen Elizabeth by drawing her outline on a flight path over the country. Let’s see a picture. [picture changes to a very badly drawn face on sky] Wow, that’s a stunning likeness. She always was smiling.

Colin Jost: No, I have not.

Ariel: Of course not. Because you’re not willing to do the work.

Colin Jost: Ariel, I thought you were just gonna come out here and you know, like, sing a little song. Don’t you have a little Jamaican crab that you sing with?

But if I’m in boarding group A, I am like “Well, order must prevail. I mean, we have a society after all. Don’t touch me. Get off me.” That’s how rich people say Get off me. They will say like one and a half times. “Get your hands off— I said Get your hands off me!”
