Q&A with Francisco Lindor: Managing Expectations in New York, Working With Gatorade If The Mets Are WS Contenders

In a blockbuster trade with the Cleveland Indians back in January, the New York Mets acquired star shortstop Francisco Lindor.

Despite the fact that his first season with the Mets hasn’t gone exactly as planned, the four-time All-Star is still finding ways to contribute.

Lindor has a.219 batting average with nine home runs and 29 RBI in 80 games this season. Mets owner Steve Cohen had hoped for more from a player who has shown he can hit.300 in the big leagues, but it’s worth noting that Lindor’s batting average is improving month by month.

Lindor hasn’t let the fact that his bat hasn’t been great this season affect the rest of his game.

On a daily basis, he wears the leather and is even among the MLB leaders in sacrifice bunts.

It’s not every day that you see a (dollar)341 million player lay down a bunt, but he’s willing to do so to aid his team.

Francisco Lindor spoke with us about his Gatorade work, his first season with the Mets, how a new contract affected his approach at the plate, and much more.

What are you doing with the Gatorade Player of the Year program? The Spun:

Francisco Lindor: It was my pleasure to present Dylan with the Gatorade Player of the Year award.

It was fascinating to watch his reaction and see how surprised he was.

I was ecstatic to announce this award because he’ll be the game’s future very soon.

The Spun: Didn’t it seem strange to give an award rather than receive one?

FL: No, I thought it was pretty cool [laughing].

Being able to present this award was fantastic because I would have loved to win it in high school.

The Spun: Does signing a 10-year, $341 million contract before the start of the season add to your pressure to perform?

FL: Closing the deal before Opening Day was fantastic.

I was able to join a fantastic company.

Is it putting more pressure on you? I believe it is the same as it has always been.

It doesn’t matter where I am, I want to win.

I’m a member of the Mets, and I’d like to bring.
