If there were any doubts as to whether Yoenis Cespedes would perform up to his 110 million dollar contract …there should be no doubts anymore. He had a week in a day. 3 homers in a week will make a player feel good ask Jay Bruce he has been on a tear recently too but Yoenis hit 3 homers in one game! And as of this writing Cespedes hit two more in the Mets 16 inning win over the Miami Marlins. So in the span of two games Yoenis Cespedes hit 5 homer runs whew! I don’t expect Cespedes to stay hot forever but it is worth noting that while he and Jay Bruce have been hot the Mets have been winning (5 in a row) Cespedes has turned out to be the signature trade that turned things around for the Mets under the Sandy Alderson regime…On July 31, 2015, Céspedes was traded to the New York Mets for minor league pitchers Michael Fulmer and Luis Cessa. What a deal that turned out to be. He has given the Mets personality , star power and a swagger not seen since …the 86 gang. What a week in two games for Yoenis Cespedes!
