    Pete has 2 games left. Roughly 8 ABs to get it done.

    I hope that he does it.

    And I hope that the Mets renegotiate his contract to be well above the league minimum and as many years as Pete wants before earning an even bigger paycheck.

    I haven’t dug into it but his strikeout rate seems to be higher the last week or so. He seems to be going for the record based on Gamecast. I haven’t actually seen the ABs so I might be unduly harsh.

    If he can cut down on the Ks via his high chase rate and get his OBP up, his OPS could be 1.000+ easily. Add more skill at 1B and his WAR could add a game or two each year as well.

    Trade him to the Rays! Ha! It won’t happen, but the Rays need a dude. Pete is most definitely a dude.

    Four Gators Enter MLB Playoffs
    Daniel Apple uf
    A.J. Puk and Mike Zunino will face off in the AL Wild Card matchup while Harrison Bader and Darren O'Day will meet in the NL Divisional Series.
    The MLB regular season is in the books and the 2019 postseason begins tonight with the National League Wild Card matchup.

    Four Gators helped their teams earn a spot in the postseason: Harrison Bader (Cardinals), Darren O'Day (Braves), A.J. Puk (A's) and Mike Zunino (Rays).
    Oakland and Tampa match up in the American League Wild Card matchup on Wednesday (8 pm, ESPN) while the Cardinals and the Braves will meet in the first round of the Division Series.

    Another Gators alum took the headlines in the final weekend of the regular season, as Pete Alonso (pictured right) broke the MLB rookie record with 53 home runs in his debut season. He finished the year with 120 RBI and 103 runs scored for the Mets. His 53 home runs also set a Mets' franchise record for homers in a season.

    Below is a look at the rest of the active Gators in the pros and how they performed in September:
    MLB | Player (Lettered at UF) | Team
    Pete Alonso (2014-16) | New York Mets: launched 11 home runs in

    He won’t make the roster and he isn’t really a Gator but Kyle Tucker, Preston’s younger brother, plays for the Astros. He had a nice September when they were allowed to expand to a 40 man roster. For the playoffs, they will be pitching heavy and Kyle likely won’t be included.
