MLB Star’s Lamborghini Spits Fire — Literally

If you were slated to make $10,500,000 this year and had accumulated more than $25 million in just the last three, what kind of car would you buy? The possible answers to that question are endless with so many different concept, sport and luxury cars coming to mind. In the case of MLB star Yoenis Cespedes, we know exactly which car he’d go for: a custom, fire-breathing Lamborghini...

Yoenis Cespedes’ value lies solely in his name

Yoenis Cespedes is an extremely interesting case among Major League outfielders. He isn’t nearly as good as the general perception of his skill set might indicate. Yet, in the past six months, he’s been traded twice, for two fairly notable pitchers: first for Jon Lester and now he’s headed to Detroit in exchange for Rick Porcello. Although the two pitchers were rentals,...

Tigers make Winter Meetings splash, getting Yoenis Cespedes and Alfredo Simon

Red Sox, Tigers reportedly swap Yoenis Cespedes, Rick Porcello

During the summer, a year and a half of Yoenis Cespedes was worth two months of Jon Lester. During the winter, a year of Cespedes is apparently worth a year of Rick Porcello.

Yoenis Cespedes is great, but ...

Yoenis Cespedes is one of the most exciting players in baseball. He’s won the Home Run Derby two years in a row, he’s already hit more homers in his first three seasons than Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Barry Bonds, and Frank Thomas did, and he’s made a handful of the best throws you’ll ever see. He’s awesome. But—you knew there’d be a “but”—Cespedes also has...
