See Yo Later: Yoenis Cespedes to have season-ending heel surgery.

See Yo Later: Yoenis Cespedes to have season-ending heel surgery.

This is like your house burning down and then the ashes later catching fire just to make sure absolutely nothing was salvageable.

Is anyone really surprised? I mean really, I’ve become numb to news like this. I now have a “yeah, that makes sense” reaction to things that absolutely should not make sense. Mets fans have adopted an “expect the unexpected” mentality to the point where I’m not sure what would shock me anymore.

Let’s take a moment to remember that Cespedes last played on May 13th  before being activated on July 20th JUST TO RETURN FOR ONE GAME. That’s insane. How do you activate your “star” player when there is even a remote possibility that these procedures could be needed…WHEN YOU’RE IN THE MIDST OF A LOST SEASON?!?

I’d love to know what the decision-making process is for the front office right now. Stop poking each other in the eye and start monitoring your players more closely, especially one of Cespedes’ caliber.

Don’t get your hopes up for a speedy recovery. History is not on the Mets side. I’d be surprised if we see Cespedes before the All-Star break next season. At the same time, is someone coming off heel surgeries really going to be able to play the outfield on a daily basis anymore?

My uneducated presumption is his days are numbered as a two-way player. It sounds to me like a DH role is calling for the tail-end of Yo’s career, and that’s not happening in the NL…yet.

Don’t pour one out for Yo, pour the whole damn bottle in your mouth for putting up with this season.
