Yoenis Cespedes signs with Athletics

Cuban Star Yoenis Cespedes has agreed to terms with the Athletics for a 4-year $36 million.  Yoenis was reportedly going to sign with the White Sox, Cubs, or Marlins.  The A’s have come out of the middle of no were to win over the Cuban  I would not be shocked if this is a sign and trade situation.  If it were to be the White Sox, Tigers, O’s and maybe  Marlins would be interested.  Or this oculd go in a rebuilding category just to help the team for the future. it is a gamble but thats business.  This should raise the ticket values just a little bit…. More information will be posted keep checking back

I no longer want to hear the Moneyball-inspired line that Oakland is just a poor franchise that can’t compete with the big boys in MLB.

that is true but who knows this could be a sign-and-trade situation. they would get a lot of prospects back if he was traded to a contender

If that’s what it is, good for them if they can pull it off. It’s sure taking a big gamble, though.
