    A dream if they do the right thing. I dont think Alonso is going to have a problem saying what he thinks, and if the Wilpons stay status quo - it will be a clash.

      Well like you said, wait and see. He could be a one year wonder and saying what he thinks will be followed by a yawn.

        It could, but lets hope not.

            Just to revisit this thread: 51 home runs and counting. A new Mets record, a new NL rookie record, and going for a new MLB rookie record. I had positive expectations, and he's exceeded them dramatically.

            Going by our posts early in the season, I don't think anyone saw this coming.

              How could anyone see this coming? It has far exceeded anything anyone could have imagined.

              One of the best thing about it is that Pete still has a lot of work to do. So there is room for improvement, I am not saying next year he hits more homers because if they change the ball he will be a 40 homer guy.

              But..........he needs to get in better condition for one thing. He is 24 and should be in much better shape. This will only help him. He also needs to learn that all he has to do is put the bat on the ball - he will still get his homers, but strikeouts dont help anyone. He is going to end up with 185 strikeouts.

              If Alonso keeps his focus and does all the preparation he could "that" player for the Mets.

                It's hard to believe it's been over a year since Peter hit his last minor league home run. I was there for it, a walk-off. It was the last action at Cashman Field, the last time the 51s would play, and the last time the Mets would be in Las Vegas, a town that should have an MLB franchise imo.
                Put it in the books.

                      As the near unanimous Rookie of the Year, it is safe to say he far exceeded our expectations.

                        For sure. Good call taking him up right from ST last season.

                          Now if we can get more than one pleasant surprise every three years...
                          Sadly as I typed this that may be an exaggeration (Davis, McNeil) but before that was Conforto and whatever you make of Nimmo and before that Noah and Degrom
