Yoenis Cespedes, Jerry Seinfeld still on for Cuban sandwiches

Lifelong New York Mets fan Jerry Seinfeld was understandably thrilled last season when his favorite baseball team on July 31st acquired slugger Yoenis Cespedes in a trade with the Detroit Tigers. So much so, in fact, that the comedian took to Twitter and dropped a reference from his classic television show to celebrate the roster move. Oh my god. @MetsI can't believe I can actually...

Finding the best fit for Yoenis Cespedes

On Monday night, the Detroit Tigers gave six years and over $130 million to Justin Upton. In doing so, they not only brought their payroll up to a laughable (but still not Dodger-esque) number, they also scooped up one of two remaining top quality outfielders.
