He's a Six-Tool Player: He Can Hit, Hit for Power, Run, Field, Throw and TrollYoenis Cespedes of the Mets signed a three year, $75 million contract before spring training. He has celebrated by arriving at the Mets camp in Port St. Lucie in a series of customized cars, all of which were very flashy and cost somewhere in the six figures.
Tut-tutters on the Internet and other media criticized Cespedes for wretched excess and forecast that his spending spree on automobiles surely meant he'd end his playing days a bankrupt.
So this morning Cespedes used a different mode of transportation for his commute to camp. He rode a horse. Wore a cowboy hat, too.
I'm a Phillies fan, but Cespedes quickly is becoming my new favorite player.
