Custom Card of the Day: Cespedes Edition
I feel like that, since last year was such a big year for rookies, Yoenis Cespedes became severely overlooked. While millions of fans were fawning over Mike Trout and Bryce Harper, Cespedes was quietly doing his thing, hitting home runs and acquiring the super-fan status he has today.
A lot of that has paid off. Cespedes, while being practically the only star in Oakland with a clean chin, has racked up a nice amount of hits and home runs, while also playing his position well. And now that he's left 'rookie' status, and leaked into 'serious player' status, people have begun to take notes and finally check him out.
And also, like I said, he's one of the few stars left on the A's, other than Josh Reddick and Jarrod Parker. The A's have a very thin team, yet they're still playing very well. Is it coincidence that there happens to be a Brad Pitt movie AND a Jonah Hill movie coming out?
You know, because...because Moneyball?
Ah, whatever. Just keep paying attention to Yoenis Cespedes. Something big's gonna happen soon.
Coming Tomorrow- Presenting one of the first place Red Sox. This one's the first baseman that used to be a catcher. Not that one, the other one.
