Your quote of the day comes from Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes. The slugger has only two hits — though both are home runs — in his last 27 plate appearances spanning seven games. He was one of baseball’s most fearsome hitters since joining the Mets at the trade deadline, smoking 17 home runs since the beginning of August.
Cespedes was asked by the media about his slump. He got a little deep. Via MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo:
Cespedes was asked if he’s worried about slump. “The only thing I’m scared of is death,” he said, then corrected: “I’m not scared of that.”

Cespedes, a free agent after the season, is reportedly seeking a six-year deal.
