“Releasing the Statement Was an Unforced Error”:Pete Alonso help’s React


Signing Harrison Bader might not have been the big splash New York Mets fans were hoping for this offseason. But Pete Alonso couldn’t hide his excitement at the news on Thursday, perhaps a good sign for relations between Alonso and the franchise.

Starling Marte, an outfielder for the New York Mets, has had migraines this season, which has affected his output. Due to frequent vomiting, he was left out of the starting lineup for Tuesday’s game against the Chicago White Sox.

He will also not be starting for Wednesday’s second game of the series. After two migraines in a week, Marte will consult a doctor and undergo tests.

Tommy Pham, Brandon Nimmo and Jeff McNeil will take care of the outfield duties on Wednesday. It is unclear how much time Marte will miss while he tries to find out the source of his migraines.

Marte has dealt with migraines in the past, but not to this extent or this close together. His disappearance from the lineup will be felt as his elite speed was a nuisance for opposing pitchers.

Alonso immediately took to Instagram to let the baseball world know he approves of the Mets inking Bader to a one-year, $10.5 million contract, courtesy of MLB’s account on X (formerly Twitter.)

“The diesel bros are back baby!!! Welcome back to the orange and blue!!!! #LFGM,” Alonso captioned a photo of he and Bader as college teammates at the University of Florida.

Alonso and Bader were teammates during the 2014 and 2015 seasons at Florida. The two helped lead the Gators to the College World Series in 2015, with Bader making that season’s All-Tournament Team.

Following that season, Bader was selected by the St. Louis Cardinals in the third round of the MLB draft, while Alonso helped Florida make a return trip to the CWS in 2016.

A native of Bronxville, New York, Bader is known primarily for his defensive capabilities in the outfield. Advanced metrics laud him for his abilities in center field as well as his speed, although Bader does have experience in corner outfield spots as well.
