Pete Alonso breaks out a shrug after his game-tying home run

Pete Alonso breaks out a shrug after his game-tying home run

NakedGoose

Should have wiggled his head so it was a Donkey Kong Smash bros taunt


PBFT

Imagine if baseball players did Smash Bros taunts


NakedGoose

If someone wants to hit a walk off and did a Luigi rocking plank on home plate I'd die


swbl216

He’s having one of those runs right now where I expect every ball he hits to go 450 feet


idocrunches

He's such a goofball


futhatsy

Guys like Soto, Taits, Acuña, Vlad, Bichette, Ohtani, Harper, Trout, Judge, Bellinger, etc. all seem so cool. Pete is the one star in this game that I can think of that seems like a totally lovable dork. All hail to our dork king.

What some of us see as a goofball having a fun time others see as cringe and cocky.


futhatsy

I was under the impression we were letting the kids play now?


Tagliarini295

It's cool when Tatis, Soto and Acuna show off but Alonso is cocky 🤷🏻‍♂️


futhatsy

They're all cocky. And they're all allowed to be. They're all really good at baseball.


Sirdrake1317

Loveable?


futhatsy

Maybe not if he's hitting homeruns off your team, I guess


Sirdrake1317

Nope. He’s just not Loveable. Tatis and Soto can do it all day for all care because they are fun and not douches.


Go_Mets

How the hell is Pete a douche? Wtf? Dude is such a good dude. Like cmon.


smarjorie

seriously lol pete is probably one of the least douchey players in the league. he's just a huge dork


CrashyBoye

What exactly, in your mind, makes Pete a “douche”?


VisibleDucks

they’re still hurt about the 2019 HRD i guess


Sirdrake1317

His entire attitude


CrashyBoye

Ah, the classic “he has personality so he’s a douche” claim.


Potato-baby

“MAH BASEBALL PLAYERS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE EMOTIONLESS ROBOTS”


CrashyBoye

Something something unwritten rules.


futhatsy

I think this is more of a you problem and less of a Pete problem. I can't think of one shred of evidence of Pete acting like a douche. Maybe you should read up on his story a bit! https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/29601961/how-new-york-mets-pete-alonso-overcame-bullies-become-big-league-superstar%3fplatform=amp

i never saw this article! love it and it makes me really love him. gentle giant


Sirdrake1317

Sure. I’ll check it out


surprisechickenugget

Next time an opponent makes it to first base against the Mets you should watch the camera. Alonso is on first base and he pretty much always greets and chats with whoever lands in first.


Sirdrake1317

Okay I’ll check it out next time


RobbieAnalog

Tiger Woods, LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Pete Alonso. Wow.


AshamedMusician5482

I love you Pete


RedCheese1

Do you think he’ll become the face of the franchise?


benewavvsupreme

I think he arguably already is, DeGrom aside. Short of an amazing Lindor season in the future I think he's the face of the franchise. He's on everything, two time derby champ, rookie HR record, he's gonna get all the money from us

Forsaken-Special-863

It’s not my fault I’m good at hitting home runs


Borktista

I just want someone to do the D’Lo Brown walk one time around the bases


Theonlywestman

Baseball needs more of this. Any type of flair, I support


cchinamann

Reminds me of Ryan hall

What a hot dog
