2 Mets giving us hope, 2 others making us depressed
NY Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor is giving us hope
Francisco Lindor is a fan favorite, and last year was a big reason why. After a not-so-good first year with the Mets, he rebounded nicely last year, hitting .270 with 26 HR and 107 RBI. He's one of the best players and baseball, and if a team wants to accomplish its goals for the season, you need a guy like Lindor to play to the back of his baseball card like he did last year and when he was in Cleveland.
Just like Alonso, Lindor was struggling mightily through the first six games. Not in the field, of course, as he proves day in and day out he's one of if not the best fielding shortstop in baseball. At the plate, though, it has been a different story as he was hitting a putrid .111 with no HR and only 1 RBI.
However, in their last game Lindor showed up and showed out as we all expected him to do eventually. Lindor went 3-4 with two doubles and 2 RBI in the series finally against the Brewers. Lindor like Alonso is the focal point of this offense and as we seen last season this offense goes as far as Alonso and Lindor take them.
You never want to put too much pressure on one or two guys, but with not adding vital offensive pieces in the offseason, Mets fans will always look at Lindor and Alonso. We all know what Lindor can do defensively and the type of hitter he is. So it was a matter of time until he woke up at the plate. Having a player like Lindor will always give a fanbase hope, and even though the Mets didn't win the series finale in Milwaukee, seeing Lindor do what he did was massive.
