Alonso Is Citi Field's Next Brick Wall

Alonso Is Citi Field's Next Brick Wall

Peter Alonso continues to flex on the competition in Florida. In his latest herculean effort, Alonso took on Josh Reddick down the first base line after an errant throw created a collision course.

Have you seen how hard and far Alonso hits a baseball? There was no doubt Alonso was winning this battle. This is exactly the kind of presence I want manning first base. Alonso has that old school big, bruising body that’s built for power.

Reddick, who is sure to be hurting tomorrow, chimed in following the game.

Alonso remained rather modest following the incident.  

Play hard on the field, play nice off the field. 

I know there’s a lot of debate on what to do with Alonso once Spring Training concludes. My heart says start him Opening Day and my brain says wait a few weeks to secure additional service time. Nonetheless, Citi Field will be getting yet another brick wall when Alonso does arrive.
