But while the Red Sox have 99 problems going into this offseason, Cespedes ain’t one. To say Cespedes changing agents will...

Then, we heard that the Red Sox brought back slugger Yoenis Cespedes in return. That seemed to settle matters as the Red Sox appeared to begin revamping their offense.

The Red Sox will trade Yoenis Cespedes eventually

The Red Sox are going to trade Yoenis Cespedes. It's not what they initially wanted to do after sending Jon Lester to the A's for him in July, but that's what's going to end up happening. It's not necessarily a failing that will cause it, either, and you can likely dismiss any rumors about the Red Sox coaching staff disliking him as being the source of a deal...

On Yoenis Cespedes in Boston: “He marches to his own drum and the coaches all hate him”

Yoenis Cespedes’ decision to switch agents to Roc Nation is said to increase the likelihood the Red Sox will trade the Cuban slugger this winter while they can still get something substantial in return for him with his free agency pending after next season.

Mets Should Be Wary Of Cespedes

Just because Yoenis Cespedes is available doesn’t mean the New York Mets should trade for him. The Red Sox want to deal the temperamental outfielder, who recently dumped his agent to sign with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation agency. Naturally, speculation links him to the Mets. Roc Nation is getting a Scott Boras-like reputation in it wants to get top dollar, which means the Mets will lover...

Red Sox coaches reportedly ‘hate’ Yoenis Cespedes

Yoenis Cespedes’ stay in Boston appears as if it will be a short one. Cespedes was acquired by the Red Sox prior to the trade deadline for Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes. Cespedes is under team control through 2015, so it looked like Boston would get a season and a half out of him at...Read More

MMO Mailbag: Will Mets Trade For Yoenis Cespedes?

Patrick G. asks… I am sick and tired of hedging on young and available players who can help this team get over the hump and into the postseason. Yasiel Puig wasn’t major league ready. Wrong! Jose Abreu‘s power wouldn’t translate. Wrong! Starlin Castro doesn’t fit our approach. Wrong! The Mets and even the fans are LONG on excuses and short on answers. It looks like we have...

10 teams that should try to trade for Yoenis Cespedes
