Yes, Cespedes was all money. Marlins tried to buy out his entire prime (26-32). Now he gets same money with chance to sign big deal at 30.
Oakland means lower expectations for Cespedes. Even if they get OK to move to San Jose, his deal will be over by time ballpark is ready.
In the end, it’s always the team you don’t expect that comes in and overpays.
I like Oakland, I go there often, but it’s obvious Cespedes has never been there. #NotMiami
