New York Mets: Why we shouldn’t worry about Pete Alonso yet

The 2020 season was rough for Pete Alonso. Expect the New York Mets first baseman to rebound next year. Pete Alonso exceeded all expectations the New York Mets could have possibly had for him in his rookie campaign. He hit 53 home runs, leading the league and breaking the Mets single-season record. This total also […] New York Mets: Why we shouldn’t worry about Pete Alonso yet - Rising Apple - Rising Apple - New York Mets News & Fan Community

2020 Mets takeaways: The infield

2020 Mets takeaways: The infield

Photo by Mike Stobe/ The Mets have more viable major league starters in the infield than there are infield spots. With the Mets’ 2020 season in the books, one thing is clear: The team does not lack options in its infield. At first base, the Mets had two real options for an everyday starter in Dominic Smith and Pete Alonso. With the National League having had the designated hitter this year, it was Smith who saw more time at first base as the season went on, with Alonso serving as a designated hitter in those games. And at the plate, Smith built upon his very good performance in 2019...

Mets blown out by Nationals in final game of season

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports Curtain drops on 2020 season, Wilpon era in ugly fashion. One day after being officially eliminated from playoff contention, the Mets saw their strange 2020 season come to an end in humiliating fashion. Sunday’s 15-5 defeat at the hand of the Nationals was a bitter, perhaps fitting coda to a disappointing season—and the Wilpon era. The Mets actually got off to an early lead in the top of the first Sunday afternoon. After Brandon Nimmo led off the game with an infield single, Pete Alonso—finally flashing his 2019 form over the last week of the...

Final Score: Nationals 15, Mets 5—Out with a whimper

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports Curtain drops on Mets’ 2020 season—and Wilpon era—in blowout defeat in Washington. The Mets got off to a quick start in the top of the first inning in the season finale, as Pete Alonso followed a Brandon Nimmo infield single with a long home run to left field. That 2-0 lead would not hold up long. The Nationals got one back in the bottom of the first before exploding for 11 more runs over the next two innings. Seth Lugo only recorded one out in the second inning, as Washington sent 10 batters to the plate and scored five before Chasen Shreve got the...

Final Score: Nationals 5, Mets 3 - Stop! Stop! He’s already dead

Photo by Greg Fiume/ The Mets’ season, already out of the playoff picture, managed to make us even sadder. After a nail-biter of a loss in the first game of the doubleheader, the Mets lost a much more one-sided game to the Nationals, 5-3. Rick Porcello started for the Mets and went just three innings, giving up five runs on eight hits and one walk. All of them came in the third inning, putting the game, sadly, out of reach in the first half of the shortened game. The Mets’ early offense came from Pete Alonso, who hit a two-run home run in the fourth. Todd Frazier added a third run...
