Get this Pete Alonso Topps Card by 1pm today

These are only available until 1pm.  It reminds me of True Detective Season 3 starring Pete Alonso.

Hat Club Sunrise Mets Cap

Hat Club is teasing these for a release today.

That’s pretty nice looking.  I am going to miss out as I’m heading out the door to soccer.  Also they are $50.  But it does look nice.

Right after I hit publish this went live for a second.  High crown doesn’t work for me.  Nice cap though.

Meanwhile, I can’t believe how discolored my 4th of July Cap, shown here when new, already is.  Like it looks I have worn it for 10 summers bad.  Will snap  a pic later.

Why Pete Alonso should be added to the All Star Game to replace deGrom

I am not a fan of this trend of players just skipping the All Star Game, including deGrom.  I get that you might not be available to pitch, but you should still go.

As a fan, I want to see my team – also MLB I want to see my team in OUR uniforms not this generic crap you introduced.

So if deGrom isn’t going – and maybe they wind up adding Walker – there’s someone that MLB should invite, and it is this guy.

Mets Police readers know I am no fan of Pete and I would personally drop him off at the airport when the Mets wise up and trade him before his value diminishes as he isn’t that good at baseball….

…but he does have star power.  And the All Star Game should be about marketing the game.

A fan in another city might not realize Pete is bad at baseball, but on Monday night at the HR Derby they are going to be sold that he’s Paul Bunyan, the lovable Polar Bear.

So always print the legend and get some eyeballs on the game.  If this Polar Bear guy is so exciting on Monday, then get him in the game on Tuesday.  That’s pretty simple, no?

In a related matter, MLB is going to have to do something.  You can’t have guys like deGrom and Altuve deciding they’d rather have a long weekend.  That doesn’t grow the game.   If the All Star Game isn’t important to the All Stars then why even have it.   I’d also be curious to see how Fox feels about this.

….

I see someone named Zack Wheeler may start for the NL.   Hi Brodie.

R.E.D. is an organization that raises awareness about the hardships of those deployed and their families. They act in support of the ‘silent soldiers,’ the families of those deployed and provide direct aid to active duty military and their families. R.E.D. was founded in 2016 in Jacksonville, N.C. at Camp LeJeune, a Marine Corps Base, to show solidarity and support for deployed service members.

 

The Mets will support the organization with a promotional giveaway at Citi Field on Friday, July 9. The team, along with Fiserv, will give away a military-themed T-Shirt to the first 12,500 fans in attendance in support of RememberEveryoneDeployed.org.

 

R.E.D. representatives will throw and catch the ceremonial first pitch and will conduct on-site activations on Mets Plaza and on the main concourse where fans can donate to the cause and support active duty military and their families.

 

R.E.D. and Fiserv will honor the Veteran of the Game, Robert Alan LaPenta, a veteran of the Marines assigned to Marine Fighter Squadron 115 Silver Eagles.
