Is Cespedes a Problem?
Do you guys remember me saying something like this?
From the NY POST
"Fascinating that while astute baseball fans and three previous teams well knew Cespedes as an indifferent talent, the Mets determined to pay him $110 million over four years in exchange for his sustaining indifference." - You can read more here.
I felt that Cespedes was a good rental player. Maybe even a good one year player so he would play well for a big contract but I was leery for the Mets to sign him for big bucks. I think the Wilpons did this more as a " We aren't cheap guys. See?" I noticed a lack of hustle in him. And there was a good reason that Yo was traded and bounced around from some teams. But I was told I didn't know what I was talking about. There was a post where I was even fooled for a few weeks and thought he might have turned the corner, but I was wrong. You guys still feel positive about the signing?
