Why you should back the Mets

First baseman Pete Alonso may not be the best contact hitter but he certainly has light-tower power. Alonso owns outstanding pop when he connects with the ball and is a nice asset driving in runs for New York. This season, he’s batting .215 with nine home runs and 20 RBI. He’s logged 2-plus hits in two of his last three games. On May 10, Alonso was 2-of-4 with a double.

Outfielder Brandon Nimmo is a solid playmaker on the diamond. Nimmo covers ground with ease in the outfield while being a reliable hitter at the plate. His batting average is .228 with five home runs and 25 RBI. Nimmo has recorded a hit in seven of his last eight outings. On May 7 against the St. Louis Cardinals, the 31-year-old went 1-of-4 with a three-run homer. See which team to pick here.
