Pete Alonso wants the New York Mets to win “multiple championships”:
While doing an interview with the Tampa Bay Times, Alonso chose not to get into talks of a long-term extension but made known his expectations for the Mets in 2023 and beyond.
“I feel like we’re on the brink of something extremely special. And I know that we don’t just want to win one. We want to win multiple championships. And in order to do that we’ve got to perform. We definitely have the talent to be able to do that.”
Alonso is certainly on point. The Mets are coming off of a 101-win season in which they had a chance to make a run. They fell short but followed it with some big splashes this free agency to get them over the top.
The Mets’ offense will need another monstrous year from Alonso. He is coming off one in which he hit 40 home runs and drove in 131 runs. Not only Alonso’s power at the plate, but his ability to hit for contact drastically improved, batting a personal best of .271. Continued growth as a pure hitter would help the Mets’ World Series chances in 2023 that much more.
Hopefully, the Mets and Alonso are able to come to terms on a long-term contract to make him a Met for life, and he can continue to lead this baseball team toward his goal of winning more than one championship in Queens.
