Mets players want Yoenis Cespedes back
It’s not just us fans that want Yoenis Cespedes to return to the Mets. The players want him back too.
While delivering turkeys today to families in need, Curtis Granderson and Jose Reyes spoke out about Cespedes. Both players want him to return to the Mets next season, however neither has any inkling as to whether or not this will happen.
We all know that Reyes and Cespedes had a casual Facetime session recently.
We’re all obviously hoping that Reyes spent the majority of this call convincing Cespedes to come back to the Mets. Well, we unfortunately don’t have confirmation of that. Reyes had the following to say about Cespedes:
"“I talked to him like one week ago, he is still waiting. We want him back. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but for sure we want him back.”“Every team needs a player like Cespedes in the lineup,’’ Reyes said. “He’s a game-changer. I tried to talk to him to better convince him to coming back, but that is something I can’t control.“Not only me, but every player on our ballclub wants him back.”"
Granderson stated that there’s a 50-50 chance that Cespedes comes back.
"“For a year and a half now he has felt really comfortable in the clubhouse, in the community, his family feels very comfortable as well,’’ Granderson said. “At the same time there are 29 other teams that are going to make him feel as comfortable as he did here.’’"
Do you hear that, Mets? The players want him back. The fans want him back. Just pay the man already.

You’ve already broken me by letting Colon go — I’m not sure how I can handle not having our big bat back – and after reading these comments from Reyes and Grandy, I’m sure they’ll feel the same way.
