What else can this man possibly do? At 40+ years old, Alou also has the longest hitting streak in the majors this year at 29 games. This is all from a guy who openly says he's retiring next year.
When Alou was out for 3 months I was not enjoying the fact that he was our biggest offseason acquisition. But Alou has more than won me over. I'd actually consider signing him next year in a Roger Clemens style deal where Alou doesn't have to start playing til June.
I am so desperate to see Alou play in the postseason for this club, but that opportunity is still yet to be confirmed. But if it does happen we might be watching a future legend of New York Mets baseball even though he's only playing for us for one year.
