Pete is in rare company now
Bad mutha shutmymouth.
Alonso slugs 50th, now 2 away from Judge's mark
I remember watching him play for the Gators... I knew he would make the majors but not make the sudden impact that he's made so far. Huge new contract negotiations should be coming for him soon... hopefully.
Wish he was in Atlanta
9 games to go. Pete may just do this.
Aaron Judge and Pete Alonso both playing in NY is great for baseball. Just a few years ago some were speaking of baseball dying due to all the Latin American players that did not speak English. Now the best players in the game are the Judge, Alonso and Trout types.
I remember listening to baseball playoff games on one ear piece while in junior high (hoping my teacher would not catch on) when games were played during the day more often and not on TV. Baseball was much more popular back then.
Same here but he wouldn't be playing 1st base.
I’m gonna be there to tonight to see him play. Pretty excited about it. I’m on on baseball tour with my dad and it’s been a great experience. If any of y’all want to see some ballparks check out Jay Buckley tours.
For that bat you find a position
An outfield of Acuna, Alonso, and Markakis, woof
Doesnt he need four more to break the rookie record?
Well done Pete! Proud of You!
three more to break it (Judge had 52).
While I agree with the premise of your argument, and I do love Alonso, he isn't in the same boat as the top players in the NL. Yelich and Bellinger are 1a and 1b. In the AL, Judge isn't even the best overall player on his team, with DJ LeMahieu having that honor. Trout is the best player(non-pitcher) in baseball, followed closely by Yelich and Bellinger. Alonso is only 24 years old, the same as Bellinger, so he has time to make it to MVP levels.
