|Cespedes won back-to-back home run derby titles in 2013 and 2014.|
One year ago, the Red Sox dealt Jon Lester to the Oakland A's for Yoenis Cespedes at the July 31 trade deadline. In the offseason, Boston sent Cespedes to the Detroit Tigers for Rick Porcello. Yesterday, Cespedes was again moved at the deadline, as Detroit shipped him off to the New York Mets.
That's four different teams in the span of one year and a day for the Cuban slugger. Seinfeld spelled his name wrong, but given his arrival in New York (the birthplace of Festivus) and his proclivity for switching ball clubs, this tweet sums up Yoenis' situation perfectly:
Oh my god. @Mets I can't believe I can actually say this, but is it true that there is now "A Cespedis for the rest of us"? #mets #T7L— Jerry Seinfeld (@JerrySeinfeld) July 31, 2015
