Sorry to longtime Stoolies Carlos Beltran and Todd Hundley, but the Polar Bear now sits atop the Mets single season home run throne despite it almost being a week before Labor Day during his first year in the Bigs after a perfect call by Gary Cohen while not wearing those bullshit Players Weekend jerseys.

We all heard that Pete Alonso had crazy power in the Minors. But I don’t think anyone saw Big Meat Pete launching this many piss missiles, cock rockets, and other hits generated from the groin region so early in his career. But he has been even better than promised along with being a leader, clutch as fuck, and having the incredible ability to turn the timeless Lets Go Mets chant into an R-rated LFGM catchphrase. The Mets single season home run record may be low compared to other teams and the ball may be juiced this year. but that home run record has lasted almost 60 years through juiced balls and juiced players. Now Pete Alonso is the new single season home run king in Mets history. Long may he reign.
