Cespedes Re-signs with the Mets

Recommended Posts

PS- if we get Cespedes, someone should join Soxtalk with the username "Yoenis Cespedes". It sure worked with Abreu. ;)

Lists top five teams most in need of Cespedes...

 

1. SFG (Pagan would move to a corner)

2. CHW (replacing Garcia in LF makes no sense but okay)

3. Angels (Todd Cunningham slated to start now)

4. Mets (not happening)

5. Orioles (need to compensate for predicted loss of C.Davis)

 

Others: KC, Detroit, StL, Nationals

I just asked Barstool Dave on Twitter about what the current situation is and if he feels confident about the Sox signing Cespedes, and he said...

 

can't speak on Gordon, haven't heard on him, all I know is what I've said about Yo ... and if it doesn't happen (fingers crossed) it wasn't cuz I was tweeting bs. This is a guy I wholly trust

 

 

Take that FWIW. It's looking good for us now though IMO.

Hahn strikes shortly after midnight CT. KW strikes on Wednesdays. Seems like the perfect storm for a signing of Yoenis Cespedes in the next 90 minutes!

Did you make this? I'm laughing out loud.

 

Props to whoever thought of making another one of these.

It was me, and I'll update it if/when we sign an outfielder, and I could probably make it look good and not poorly photoshopped like it is now :lol: Eaton sure put on some weight...

Just FYI the article did not have an others section mentioning KC. That was a caulfield special.

I guess I was wrong:

Twitter has died down almost completely with the keyword 'Cespedes'. I guess the perfect storm wasn't so perfect over all.

Well, it's pretty illogical to list the Mets as being in need of someone they don't have the ability to sign.

 

SFG and LAA are questionable enough, coming up right against the luxury tax already if they were to add $20-25 million to payroll.

 

That said, you're right, there's no way that the Royals have any intention to sign him.

 

 

It was more my mental checklist of possible teams for all three guys:

 

White Sox, Orioles (two teams most logically in play for any of the three)

 

SFG, LAA, StL, Nationals, Detroit...pushing up against payroll concerns

 

Could probably add the Red Sox as a real long-shot.

 

KC...only Gordon on a 3 or 4 year deal

Wasn't that during the Winter Meetings in SD last year? Or was that later?

Fun fact. Cesped in Spanish means "grass," thus Cespedes means "grasses." Yoenis Grasses.

Another fun fact. Cespedes shares the same birthday as the legend himself..... me.

China just invaded your country and destroyed it...unless you're already here...in which case we are simultaneously being wiped out by pollution.
