Pete Alonso put on a freak show clinic vs the Cubs with more insane behavior, cementing himself as the biggest loser in Major League Baseball
Pete Alonso is officially the biggest weirdo in baseball. We’ve seen his antics ramp up all season, but his latest display of freak show behavior against the Cubs had to leave even his biggest fans scratching their heads tonight.
It started with what seemed like an unprovoked verbal outburst at Cubs pitcher Adrian Sampson.
I get it. Players exchange words all the time. But after a wholly benign walk in the first inning? There is genuinely no other reason for him to come at Sampson other than the weird tough guy persona he’s tried to craft throughout the season.
He breaks his bats, yells at opponents, and lifts before the Home Run Derby. Look! He’s cool and tough, guys! Pete Alonso is a big strong guy! He told us a MILLION times earlier this year and even said that he would put someone in the hospital if he had to do it!
Side Note: Stubby Clapp is 49 years old. lol.
In reality, the Mets are collapsing, nobody thinks he’s cool, and he got smoked by José Rodriguez in the Home Run Derby after his team posted that lifting clip.
Just look at this clown:
Sometimes I think these social media teams deliberately try to set their players up for failure…
But wait! There was more to come in Pete Alonso’s Freak Show Seminar™
Pete Alonso is fucking nuts, right? Why else would he feel possessed to do that?
Yeah, each individual incident is a little odd at best, but there’s clearly something up with this guy. It’s almost like he’s doing a shitty, unfunny impression of someone with roid rage. Sometimes, the signs of steroid use are so in-your-face obvious you miss them.
Unfortunately, I think MLB has fallen into this trap.
Not to mention, over his last 30 games, Alonso is batting a miserable .224/.280/.379 with just five home runs and 14 RBI.
Maybe that’s why he’s out there crying like a baby and embarrassing himself like this in mid-September?
It doesn’t help that he has Brandon “Sprints to First Base” / “Storm the Capitol” Nimmo is also on the most unlikeable team in all of sports with him, either.
Keep an eye on that guy, he may be the ringleader of the Freak Show
Hey, don’t just take my word for it. Even Jerry Seinfeld, known Mets fan and Edwin Diaz Trumpet Hater, thinks his own team is pathetic.
