Who saw this coming about Cespedes?

From MetsBlog
"The Mets don't know exactly when outfielder Yoenis Cespedes will return from double heel surgery, and Omar Minaya, special assistant to the GM, echoed that sentiment.
"Right now, there's not a specific timetable to date," Minaya said on MLB Network Radio on Wednesday. "But he had those two operations. Usually we don't like getting into specific timetables. We just want to get him back, and if he comes back, anything -- if he gives us anything this year, that is gravy. We're happy for that."
New Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen said last month he views Cespedes, who underwent surgery to remove bone calcification from his right heel on Aug. 2 and his left heel on Oct. 26, as "the ultimate trade deadline piece," suggesting the 33-year-old slugger could return at some point in the second half."
Hey Mets, don't sign Murphy after 2015, but sign this guy. YEP what a deal. The original trade for him was great. Bringing him back for one year so he could "earn" a better contract after 2016 fine. But that four year contract was dumb. I kinda remember someone saying that it wasn't a wise decision especially after some of the nonsense I heard about in the clubhouse during games. BTW shouldn't there be some sort of time table so you know what you need to add to the team? Maybe YO will accept a trade to an AL team and be a DH...
