Mets slugger Pete Alonso makes the case for the RBI in this analytical era

NEW YORK – The sentence had not even been completed, and Pete Alonso reacted in such a way that made it clear that he could never agree.

The value of the RBI has been debated — and often diminished — in this analytical era of baseball, but Alonso isn’t having any of that discussion.

“Oh, absolutely (they matter),” Alonso said recently.

Alonso, the Mets’ rookie phenom who just set the team’s single-season home run record with No. 42 on Tuesday night, is one of 10 players in the 100-RBI club this year, accomplishing the feat last Saturday.

Is he really?
