Cespedes returns to Mets

Recommended Posts

Accepts a 3 yr deal with an opt out after 1 season. The Nationals offered 5 years, I guess Cespedes wanted to come back to the Mets badly. With this rotation, and the re-tooled lineup and bullpen, this has huge potential.

 

Here is a theoretical lineup:

 

1 Granderson RF

2 Walker 2B

3 Cespedes CF

4 Conforto LF

5 Wright 3B

6 Duda 1B

7 d'Arnaud C

8 Cabrera SS

 

This on the back of signing Bastardo to serve as setup man. Mets will theoretically get a full season out of Conforto, Cespedes, Matz, Addison Reed, Jerry Blevins, and get Wheeler back for half a season or so, get Josh Edgin back. New additions (upgrades) at SS with Asdrubal Cabrera and at 2B with Neil Walker. They signed Bastardo as a dominant set up man and de Aza for outfield depth.

 

This team could win 100 games.

This is a football spike on a fantastic offseason for the Mets. Now they just need to keep this group together and hopefully get some good luck with the injuries.

He wouldn't have been even if Cespedes didn't re-sign. He would've platooned with Lagares, played 4th outfielder. Now he's a fifth outfielder, which is good for the Mets.

It's quite unbelievable that he left 9 figures on the table to resign with the Mets.
