Why you should back the Mets

The two-time All-Star leads the majors in home runs (21) and is fifth in RBI (47). In his last contest against the Toronto Blue Jays, Alonso was 1-of-4 with a solo homer.

Center fielder Brandon Nimmo has been a solid two-way player for the Mets. Nimmo plays with good range in the outfield and will consistently make contact at the plate.
