Of course, the way he handled this, going M.I.A. on the team was bad. But I’m not sure that he’s telling the truth about Coronavirus being the reason for opting out. I think his poor start, but moreso his wanting to play the outfield are why he really quit on the team. Anyway, whatever happens next with Cespedes, I’m sure he’ll bounce back with an MVP-like season because we’re talking about the Mets here.
Either they should’ve played the season in a bubble like the NBA or not played at all.
I still say they that all professional sports should be canceled for 2020 and shouldn’t resume until there’s a vaccine made for COVID.
We can never forget this.
2000 Mets, one of my favorite Met teams, if only Timo Perez had ran straight through in Game 1.
I would need more than a year of seeing how all participants performed before I could decide that this trade was ‘disastrous’.
This is a huge blow, but it helps that we had 6 starters on the roster already. With everything going on, who knows when the baseball will resume, but either way, we won’t be seeing Noah anytime soon.
As much as J.D. had a breakout season in 2019, how he gets at-bats with that crowded infield and Cespedez declaring himself ready for Opening Day is beyond me.
Damn right, the guy’s a snitch. If he was really concerned about what was going on, he would’ve spoken up when it was going on, not wait until 3 years later.
Cespedes arrived in camp well before Saturday’s official reporting date for position players, but team media relations officials indicated he would not speak to reporters for the first time since spring training 2019 until this week. But Cespedes issued only a brief message Monday when approached by a group of reporters who asked if he had a few minutes to talk.
“Not today, not tomorrow, not at all year this year,” Cespedes said.
“Because I don’t want to,” Cespedes said.
Cespedes, who is recovering from multiple right ankle fractures sustained after encountering a wild boar on his ranch last May, was asked if he could say how he was feeling. He declined.
Hey, if Cespedes is healthy and has a big year with the bat I could care less he stays mute for the whole year.
