Will Vulgar Pete Alonso make the 2023 All Star Team?

We know Vulgar Pete will make the Home Run Derby, and we understand baseball likes power hitters….but how many 1B can the National League take?  Look I can hear you already buy let’s look at the choices..

You millennials started with the OPS nonsense.  I was perfectly fine with HRs and RBIs in which case Pete is obviously the NL MVP…but you guys decided OPS was the way so….

Paul Goldschmidt is the reigning MVP and has a better OPS.  No brainer.

Freddie Freeman, 4 digit OPS. No brainer.

Do you take a look at Matt Olson, or are there other Braves to be taken so he loses out.

How many good Reds are there?  (Answer NOT MANY)  Does Spencer Steer make it?  Mayyyybe?

My guess is they take three 1Bs, and Vulgar Pete gets to play the 8th inning and bat once.

The Math: can the Mets win 90 games? After last year anything is possible!

Got a message from Anonymous (thanks A) regarding The Math.  This was from over the weekend so the numbers are slightly different now but the point is the same:

Time to break out the Mets Math again. 27-27. To get to 90-72 they need to run 63-45 the rest of the way. Not looking like they’re built for it.

Well, after being the founder of The Math religion and a big believer in The Math, the 2022 Mets have left me disillusioned.  There was absolutely no way they could blow the lead and not win the NL East.  And yet, the impossible has happened.

So, dear reader, I feel you, but I cannot do The Math ever again as the Mets somehow found a way.  Based on what I saw last year the Mets might go 93 and 15 the rest of the way.

Anyway, don’t worry about any of this.  Some idiot expanded the playoffs making the regular season meaningless.  Steve should tell Justin and Max to take the summer off and just sell tickets against Vulgar Pete hitting the 8th most home runs of all time (who gets excited about 60 HRs post 1995?).  Then they can hope to get hot for a month and steal a ring.
