YO LIVES! Cespedes Taking BP In Port Saint Lucie

YO LIVES! Cespedes Taking BP In Port Saint Lucie

After falling off a horse (or whatever it is actually happened at Cespedes’ ranch) caused Yo to undergo multiple surgeries on his heels and ankles, he’s gone radio silent for the better part of a year now. Until today, when Endy Chavez (who was hired to coach for the Brooklyn Cyclones before the 2019 season) shared a video tossing BP to Cespedes.

This comes only a few weeks after Broadie said “It’s too early to tell…I don’t have enough information to predict when (Cespedes) is going to be back.”

It’s the classic Seinfeld dilemma when a blind George is spotting dimes and eating onions. I don’t know what to think of this. Is Cespedes truly ready to return to action? Or is this all a mirage?

 

Things got even weirder after Chavez took the video down after only being up for like 20 mins. That means someone from within the Mets organization, or Yo’s team, wanted it down. I’m not sure why, but you know damn well someone didn’t want this out there. 

As much fun as it was to watch Alonso mash the ball and McNeil develop into a potential batting champ last season, there’s no doubt the Mets could’ve used Cespedes’ firepower to back them up. The roster is only deeper when Yo's a part of it. Not to mention how much more intimidating the middle of the order suddenly appears.  

I’ll never doubt Cespedes’ ability to hit, I will doubt his ability to run. I just don’t know what kind of shape he’s going to be in next year and for the remainder of his career after those guys of surgeries on his heels and ankles. Truth be told, he’s probably best left as a DH at this point. That does the Mets no good as long as the current rules stay in place.

I’m just happy to see Yo back swinging the bat. I don’t want, I NEED Alonso and Cespedes to hit back-to-back home runs with bat flips as high as their towering shots next season.

…in reality, this is probably just a mirage to get our hopes up.
