In what was supposed to be a memorable year for the New York Mets, the opposite has been the case. Fans were hoping for a trip to the postseason, with dreams of a World Series on their minds. Well, maybe next year.
The Mets have been a total disappointment and there were even rumors about the team trading Pete Alonso before the deadline. Seriously? Alonso was understandably taken back by the reports, but he made it clear that he loves the Mets and he takes pride in being able to call himself a Met.
You can tell from that video that Alonso was pretty surprised to hear the news. However, that's not going to have an impact on him trying to close out the season the right way for the club from Flushing, Queens.
Alonso admitted that he doesn't know what the future holds for him. The Mets could also look to trade him this offseason. If that happens, NY supporters will surely be heartbroken.
