Cespedes has played for the Oakland A’s, Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers and New York Mets in the last calendar year. How can a player still be looked at as a prize in the free agent market when so many teams let him go elsewhere? Because baseball is weird and so is Cespedes’ career so far. He has all the tools that scouts drool over. His arm is as legendary as his bat flips. However, he also takes terrible routes to the ball sometimes and even his greatest throw vs. the Angels came after the ball was kicked. He became a non-factor in the World Series this year, and yet the Mets wouldn’t have made the playoffs in the first place without him.
Will someone offer him an obscene amount of money and will that team play their home games at AT&T Park?
