It’s never too early to start my favorite offseason cliche. And today we have once from a guy who may be in the best shape of ten people’s lives: Yoenis Cespedes. From Kevin Goldstein’s latest over at Baseball Prospectus, here’s the money quote from Cespedes’ advisor, Edgar Mercedes:
“We wanted to show that he’s left Cuba, and he’s working harder than he’s ever had in his life. We wanted to show that he’s in the best shape of his life, because when he first came here, he wasn’t.”
And with that the offseason can officially begin.
(thanks to Aaron M. for pointing out my favorite turn of phrase)
