Is Yoenis Cespedes The Most Underrated Player in Baseball?

Yoenis Cespedes has been traded three times in a little over a year, spending time with the Oakland Athletics, Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers, and New York Mets in that span.

How Yoenis Cespedes saved the Mets from themselves

Perhaps it’s silly to declare victory after two weeks but you will be hard pressed to find a Mets fan pining for Gomez these days. In fact, most seem to be scheming to find ways to sign Cespedes to a long-term contract. The odds...
