As reported recently, the clubhouse of the New York Mets has become toxic, and at WFAN, Sal Licata has claimed that Pete Alonso is the reason behind the issue. According to Licata, the current team's core needs to be dismantled, and Alonso is among the players who would be let go.
Currently, a long-term agreement has not been reached between Alonso and the Mets, despite his significant earnings of $14.5 million for this season. Licata's claims have surprised many, considering that Alonso has been a popular figure among the fans and a crucial player for the Mets in recent years. Nevertheless, according to Licata, the team must rebuild without Alonso in order to address the negative environment in the clubhouse.
Although it remains unclear what specific events have caused the harmful atmosphere in the Mets' clubhouse, Licata's allegations have generated significant debates among analysts and fans alike. Licata was criticized by some for singling out Alonso, while others believe that a change is necessary to improve the team's culture.
Currently, the Mets have not responded to Licata's claims, and it is uncertain whether they will take any action to address the reported toxicity in their clubhouse.
