Cespedes undaunted by Dodgers aces: 'They're pitchers just like anyone else'

Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke form one of the best starting pitching tandems in baseball history, but as far as Yoenis Cespedes is concerned when he faces them in the upcoming NLDS, they're just run-of-the-mill pitchers. Kershaw, who led MLB with 301 strikeouts this season, and Greinke, who topped MLB with a 1.66 ERA – amongst other accomplishments – are slated to start Games...

Yoenis Cespedes: The best trade deadline acquisition in years

Yoenis Cespedes is, quite frankly, kicking ass and taking names for the Mets. He’s played in just 41 games with the team, and is hitting .309/.356/.691 with 17 homers. In 102 games before the trade with the Tigers, he homered 18 times. Those 17 homers also rank third on the Mets (behind Curtis Granderson and Lucas Duda, who have both played at least 120 games with the team),...

How Yoenis Cespedes saved the Mets from themselves

It all seemed to be coming together for the Mets. It looked like they had just traded for the kind of impact bat their lineup so desperately needed in the form of Carlos Gomez and that he would propel the pitching laden Metropolitans to a division championship. And then this happened: This kind of gaffe seemed typical of the Mets of the past ten years. An all-star caliber player...

Seinfeld, Yoenis Cespedes continue witty Twitter banter

Jerry Seinfeld is a longtime and devoted New York Mets fan, so it was no surprise that he greeted the team’s acquisition of Yoenis Cespedes with great joy and anticipation.
