Yoenis Cespedes is no one-man show, but with his flair for the bright lights, his amazing 2015 run and his ability to make everyone better, there is just something about the guy | FOX Sports

The latest Robothal.

Meanwhile, the next decision on Cespedes—the free-agent decision—will carry the biggest stakes yet.

One rival exec said he initially believed that Cespedes would command $80 million, but now believes that the outfielder’s contract will exceed $130 million.

A long, expensive deal could prove a mistake, considering that Cespedes turns 30 on Oct. 18. Then again, there is something about him, isn’t there?

Ask the 2014 Athletics. Ask the 2015 Mets.
