I told Him > Valent that Alonso's name sounded like Alfonso but for some reason he thinks he's going to be a bust because of his name. No!

The last name can cancel out the first name according to namebermetrics.

Ok, I was wrong by one game. No worries. Tonight’s the night!!


By the way, how the hell are the Braves doing it with those names? Brian Snitker? Mike Foltynewicz? Dan Winkler?

im curious, what would Dom Smith have to do to quiet the Peter Alonso crowd? like, what is the minimum OPS(or WAR, in BnO's case) Dom Smith would have to have for people to allow Alonso to get some ABs in AAA? and how many games would Smith have to do it for?

honest question...I'm not trying to be shitty to the Alonso crowd

biggest thing I'm looking for is his exit velocity on balls hit on monday's and thursday's after 9:02 PM EST. he needs to be above 92.5 average exit velo in those situations.

I would like to see him outperform AGon. I'm setting the bar low.

i mean, if he doesn't even outperform Adrian Gonzalez, then yeah, boot him off the team

but I'm just curious to see what it would take for people to stop complaining that he was called up over Alonso...I guess we'll just have to wait and see

Dom performing well wouldn't make Alonso less of a prospect. Dom performing and making one of them valuable and expendable would be awesome

its not a vendetta..i was asking honestly...people seem to want to only give a shot to Alonso and want us to just throw our former top prospect to the wayside, so I'm wondering what Dom would have to do to justify giving him a shot over Alonso

Real baseball teams don’t give a fuck about getting a top prospect AB’s in AAA. AAA is for fat ass trump voters to have a local baseball team to watch replacement level organizational depth play boring baseball

people want to see the prospect having an insane breakout more than they want to see a guy who looks like a washed up bust. shocking!

what dom has to do to get people to care is to play good baseball like a good baseball player

actual good baseball, not "look at his numbers with RISP" baseball

Maj swoops in with a hot take on the existence of AAA baseball!

but I wasn't specifically talking about getting Alonso ABs in AAA...I was talking more about getting Smith ABs on the major league team...I figure the only solution for this board would be having them both called up at the same time, but that would just mean they'd be sitting way more often than anyone would want them to...so one of them would have to play in AAA, so the question is, what would Smith have to do on the ML team for Alonso stans to stop clamoring for him to be called up instead of Smith

“Alonso stans” = people who want the Mets’ breakout offensive prospect in the devoid ML lineup

Makes sense to give Dom a shot before Alonso. It's a short sample, but I'd at least wait for Alonso to heat up again before letting him see ML pitching.

Dom can still become a solid starting 1B. Too early to cast him aside for someone lower in the organization.

that's not what I'm asking, dingus...what does "be good at baseball" even mean? how "good at baseball" would he have to be? I feel like if there's any vendetta, it's the people that are mad that Smith was called up over Alonso...it's that classic cliche of "the most popular player on a failing team is the backup QB"...some of you guys have this guy up on a pedestal like he's going to save us offensively...he probably won't...at least give Smith a chance to play

Based on your love for Adrian Gonzalez, I'm going to assume this is a serious question. Buddy?
