Pete Alonso is the New York Mets starting first baseman. He is by far the best offensive player on the Mets, and might even be the best player on the team. We are only about halfway through the season maybe a little over and he has these crazy stats, and don’t forget he is a rookie! Pete Alonso has 30 home runs, 69 RBI’s, 92 hits, and somehow still keeping a batting average of .275. On top of that, he also won the whole home run derby, and he was against three and some four-year veterans. But he still somehow managed to pull it off. Sometimes there are these special players that enter a sport and you can tell from their first year that they are going to be a once in a decade time player. In my opinion, Pete Alonso is that player. He is almost exactly built like Mike Trout. Pete Alonso is strong, big, makes big plays when you need them, and fast. Mike Trout has all of those abilities too. the crazy thing is though he is a rookie and already this good. For some people the game of baseball means making millions of dollars and then retiring, but for Pete Alonso it is life. For proof you can see in the way he swings his bat and cares so much about the games. So what can we expect from Pete Alonso in the years to come?
The New York Mets and the Miami Marlins are the two worst teams in their division. They are both desperately fighting for fourth place and nothing more. Both teams can’t clinch the playoffs and their season means nothing to them now. The New York Mets are 40 and 51 and currently in fourth place. The Miami Marlins are 34 and 55 and currently in fifth place. If there is something that both teams have in common it’s that their owners, managers, and general managers are terrible. They should not be able to own a team, coach a team, or make player contracts and sign new players. My projection is for the next 3-4 years the New York Mets will be bad. Their star pitcher Jacob Degrom his age is starting to catch up to him and the rest of the Mets team is old. There only good prospect is Pete Alonso. He is going to be the next Mike Trout. He is fast, has a powerful swing, and a great batting average. But frankly, the Mets don’t deserve Jacob Degrom or Pete Alonso. The Miami Marlins will be good in 2-4 years because they still are a new team and adjusting their management. They are very close to finding the right chemistry. But they will slowly start to get a little better over time. Their star pitcher Caleb Smith has been one of the league leaders in the lowest ERA in the MLB this season and has been their ace for a couple of years. But the difference between Jacob Degrom and Caleb Smith is that Caleb Smith is 4 years younger than Degrom and an ace at this age. In my opinion, in about 4 years the Miami Marlins and New York Mets will become the Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals of today. How would you manage these teams and bring them up from dead?
The Mets this season are 2-1. Their first game they beat the Nationals 2-0, their second game they beat the Nationals 11-8, and they lost their third game to the Nationals 6-5. I know what you are thinking. The Nationals lost Bryce Harper and Daniel Murphy. So what the Mets pitching has been outstanding so far, and their hitting is amazing, and they are getting the win and a win is a win. The Mets next series is against the Miami Marlins and they are currently 2-2. You also might be thinking oh they will probably do what they did last year and start out 10-1 and be bad the rest of the season and end up with what they did last year 77-85. Well if the Mets stay healthy and keep performing the way they are now they might have a shot at winning their division or better world series, and join the 1969 team and the 1986 team and get a ring. They will finally end the New York Mets baseball drought of 33 years. Let’s Go Mets!
