That did not take long. Almost as quickly as news spread Yoenis Cespedes had no intention of opting out
of his three-year, $75-million deal with the New York Mets, the oft-injured player says it is up to his agents.
Most Mets fans were quick to rejoice over the outfielders’ decision to stay in Flushing. However, Cespedes gave fans a quick, cojelo con take it easy. In other words, ‘calm it down’ because no decision has actually been made yet.
While it is very well known how much Cespedes loves to be in New York, he undoubtedly feels his value is high. Perhaps he is being a little too hasty. With a cranky heel dating back to days in Cuba and legs to match, there is a chance his value has slightly diminished.
Maybe he should just stay where he is most welcomed and earning $75-million.
Cespedes has said he would like to stay, but these are discussions for the offseason. For now, he just wants to focus on playing baseball and hopefully getting back to the playoffs.
The outfielder currently ranks number one in batting average (.292), home runs (25) and RBI’s (64).
