Pete Alonso of the New York Mets is off to a slow start in a very surprising way - out of the 56 fastballs Alonso has seen so far this year he has a total of zero hits. This comes a shock because last year Alonso slugged .813 on the fastballs he saw in the strike zone, the best in the National League. SI senior writer Tom Verducci explains the anomaly of Alonso's slow start for the Mets this season.
