After splitting from Carlos Beltran on Thursday, the Mets have been insulted by many fans and media alike, but Keith Hernandez, Pete Alonso, and Marcus Stroman went to Twitter to insist that the Amazins can still have a successful season.
"Everyone, calm down" Hernandez wrote, “This current crisis is somewhat unfortunate, but not insurmountable. We have a solid team, a good core of young, everyday players mixed with veterans and a solid rotation. They have great companionship, a strong will to win and are hungry. "
The NL newcomer of the year, Alonso, did not comment directly on Beltran's departure, but confirmed that the MLB scandal about stealing signs had shaken the sport.
"Yes, there's a lot of craziness in the baseball world," Alonso wrote. “Ultimately, we have to do our job on the field and win the fight between the lines. Great things will come this year. The boys will be done. #LFGM ”
Alonso's message, which seemed to delight many Mets fans on Twitter, also caused Marcus Stroman to blossom.
"(S-t) … I'm ready to rock my brother! 🙌🏾,” Stroman wrote to the first base man, who Major league rookie record for home runs at 53 last season.
Stroman, who tweeted earlier "My goodness" When the Beltran news became known, it seemed stunned how far this scandal has become.
"This is crazy. I really can't believe that all of this will come out in baseball," he wrote. "I'll just sit back and see how everything goes. I know my thoughts, but they stay within me. I have learned that "no comment" is sometimes the best option! Lol ”
Hernandez, who, according to Andrew Marchand from the Post, is signing a new three-year contract for around $ 2.4 million to continue to act as an analyst for SNY's Mets games, had another message to the anxious Mets fans: Breathe deep through.
That will everything ironed out"He wrote." So sit back, enjoy life. Life is good. Stop stressing. Our season will depend on our bullpen. (Dellin) Betances is a good game of chance and he plays in NY. Atlanta and Washington lost important offensive players. Department wide open and very competitive. So relax. "
This may be easier said than done for a Mets fan base that has become accustomed to organizational dysfunction.
