There was much to do with Yoenis Cespedes this past week with his array of sports cars and his riding in on a horse in training camp. Some thought it was too showy, and too over the top, but considering they spend over a month in the sleepy town in Florida before the games get real, what’s wrong with a little fun to lighten the mood? Cespedes isn’t the first athlete to show off his cars nor will he be the last.
One thing we did learn Cespedes loves attention, and he gives the Mets a much need jolt of personality, like the 86′ Mets personality. Nothing wrong with that ….as long as you’re winning. So for now they get a free pass .The idea of coming to camp on horse back was Noah Syndergaad’s and I’m sure it was for laughs. We expect athletes to be serious all the time, stone faced and intense. Ok I get it. But when it is time to be serious be serious. But spring training ? I got no problem with having alittle fun. Go for it boys!
