    Pete Alonso

    What has happened to his power? He continues to swing at pitches way out of the strike zone.
    Is he a one year wonder?

    Teams make adjustments. Not to mention its a small sample size. A lot of guys have bad 12 game stretches during the course of a season. Its just magnified because this season is so short.

    Keith mentioned it during the broadcast Monday that Alonso's swing is off. He's holding his hands too high and its probably disrupting his timing. He'll figure it out.

    It's called a slump. He'll be fine.

    He's looked better the last couple of games, with taking walks, and the hit to rightcenter yesterday.
    I think he will break out over the weekend

    A slump but pitchers have also made adjustments on him. He now needs to make adjustments

    Cody Bellinger got benched while facing the same exact situation. Not unusual. Hopefully, Pete will be able to counter the adjustments that have been made by opposing pitchers.

    This. Everybody slumps, it's just magnified for Pete because 1) he's Pete, 2) he's in New York, and 3) it's a clown season.

    All he has to do is make the adjustments to the adjustments made to him based on the adjustments he made prior to the adjustments being made on the adjustments.

    A good hitter will listen. Jason Bay decided he was fine and never listened to anyone, even when Keith made a video showing what he was doing wrong. (Note: did he do that for Bay or Davis? Can't remember)

    Either way, if you don't listen, you won't be able to make the adjustments.

    Hes going to be just fine. If were worried about Pete, then things are looking good for us.

    I don't think he juiced, I think he is what he was projected to be in the minors.
    Great power, low average, lumbering at 1st.
    Last year he had a phenomenal 1st half, hitting to all fields.
    In the 2nd half he started devolving into a straight pull hitter.

    Teams went to school on that, they no longer give him 1st pitch cookies, and they let him keep chasing and trying to pull everything.

    Last night was the best Pete looked in a long time.
    Going to all fields looked like 1st half Pete in 19

    By far his best game at the plate. That first double to right was hopefully the turning point and he becomes productive moving forward.
