Well, duh, we all want Cespedes beck on the Mets.

Plus, it’s not just the fans that are advocating for the Mets to retain Cespedes.

It’s great to see that the players want Yoenis Cespedes to come back next season too. It shows how much they value him as a player and as a teammate. They know that the Mets needs Cespedes.

Jacob deGrom, who said that he’s sure he’ll be back in 2017, is one of the players who has spoken about how he wants Cespedes back. Unfortunately, he has no clue of which way Cespedes is currently leaning.

"“I feel like he’s a tough guy to read,” deGrom said. “I guess we all are, but I really didn’t get any indication.”“We’d love to have him back. He’s a big bat in our lineup, that definitely helps us out a lot. It will be interesting to see what happens.”"

Preach, deGrom, preach. We all want him back. The Mets need him back.

Cespedes has until the third day after this year’s World Series ends to opt out of his three-year deal with the Mets. Over the past few days there has been some mixed messages sent by Cespedes as to whether he’s planning on returning to the Mets or not.

At the end of August Cespedes said that he wasn’t planning on opting out of his contract. Now, however, that doesn’t seem to be as clear.  The Mets are currently preparing for him to opt out of the last two years of his deal, but they really need to do everything in their power to retain him.

The players want Cespedes back. The fans want Cespedes back. The Mets need Cespedes back. This all seems like common sense. Mets, don’t mess this up and let’s hope that the Wild Card game was not the last time that Cespedes was in a Mets uniform.
