The New York Mets are currently in a tough spot, and so naturally, some fans are tired of their losing ways. However, Pete Alonso has come out with a statement pleading for their supporters to continue believing in the team.

As Tim Healey of Newsday Sports reported, Alonso called the challenges they are facing as the usual “tough” times that everyone goes through.

Looks like Pete Alonso is calling out the fans.

Nonetheless, he has a good point. No matter how good a team can be, there will always be a slump. The Mets are no exception.

However, there are multiple reasons for their lack of wins. One big reason is their abysmal offensive production and pitching woes. In the last 10 games, the Mets only won two games and were outscored 27 to 47. That in itself shows how lackluster the team has been overall.

Individual performances have been to blame as well. Newly acquired Javy Baez has been underwhelming with the team, only batting a mere .174 AVG and 13 strikeouts in 34 at-bats. Thought to be the offensive spark plug the team desperately needed, he hasn’t been able to meet expectations. However, he should be able to bounce back and improve.

Others like Michael Conforto, Jonathan Villar and James McCann must start getting hot at the plate if they want their team to come back and win the NL East.

With other teams such as the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies taking over at number one, the Mets must clean up their mess. If they can’t then they could be in jeopardy of missing the playoffs yet again. But there is faith that they can come back. Fans just have to believe, as Alonso said.
