Yoenis Cespedes is one of the best hitters in baseball right now, he carried the Mets to their first World Series appearance since 2000 against the Yankees and to the postseason 2 years straight. Now, he has decided to opt out of his contract with his contract with the Amazin’s so, where will he go now?
YANK’S PREDICTION- Washington Nationals/New York Yankees:
Granted, if you know me you’ll call bias. I am Yank after all. I can state for a fact I do not want Cespedes on the Yankees but, the way the Yankees have operated makes them prime for Cespedes since they pay big bucks and love home run hitters like Cespedes to bring in a ring. Especially if Cespedes likes New York but wants a bigger paycheck, he will probably sign with the Yankees. But, the Nationals are going to keep a close eye on him. They already have a fairly stacked offense, but adding Cespedes can help them end their postseason drought. With Murphy, Harper and Cespedes that team will be near unstoppable. But, we have until January to find out where this slugger will reside for around the next 5 years.
