Keith Hernandez said he's going to actually plant the Yoenis Cespedes gnome in his garden

The Mets are giving out a very stylish Yoenis Cespedes gnome during their May 5 game. Here's the Major League-esque commercial promoting the giveaway that the team dropped on Monday.

And during the Mets' 6-5 win over the Cardinals on Tuesday night, Mets broadcaster Keith Hernandez did another little promo for the figurine. While most fans might just put their gnome up on their mantle so it stares at them longingly every day and night, Hernandez claimed he'd actually be putting it in his garden. 

"It's good to get rid of voles, trust me ... the voles damaged my roses last year."

Those voles don't stand a chance.
