Look at this image the Mets tweeted – and now think of it as a movie poster. Pete is buried in the bottom right which is where you place Rose in your Star Wars poster. He definitely isn’t one of the leads. Maybe even the Mets know to bet on Dom as Pete is likely to get booed this summer.
Why will Pete get booed? Well aside from all the strikeouts, people have unrealistic expectations about his power, as if he’s going to be just the 9th person in baseball history hit to hit 50 home runs more than once (and three of those are McGwire, Sosa and A-Rod who…you know…played around the same time and stuff.)
