Mets Season in Review: Yoenis Cespedes
More Cespedes 2016 season
He had the flare for the dramatic, like when he came off the bench, injured, to belt a game-tying home run against the Reds on the 1st pitch.
And he topped a historic inning with a grand slam against the Giants (and on the 1st pitch AGAIN no less), after getting a 2-run single earlier in the frame.
He consistently would either tie or give the Mets the lead with his shots outta this universe, and sometimes would just show off and tack on for good measure, as he did coming back from his quad injury later in the year, once more against the hated former New York team.
He also got the major hit in the Sunday night square-off against the Wild Card battling teams that series, a weekend that turned out to be the beginning of the Mets push to the 1st Wild Card finish.
And who can forget the Yo’s walkoff against the Marlins at the end of August?
Wow. This post turned into a serious Yo Love Fest. And why not? He’s one of the greatest players to ever wear a Mets uniform. That should be reveled in.
Wait a second…I haven’t even mention his arm yet!
It’s only natural for those in competition to want to challenge the best. They just lose most of the time. Keep running. I’ll keep posting these videos.
It was fun watching him all year. A blast seeing him hit it off so well with Jose Reyes and Asdrubal Cabrera, who seemed to form the fun bunch of the team.
While it does seem that this team overall gets along extremely well in that clubhouse, it was fun seeing the three of them form a bond but also be somewhat of a checks and balances on the wacky antics he can sometimes display.
Oh, and of course…
