The new-and-improved Yoenis Cespedes: A workout warrior | New York Post

This is reaction a GM hopes for when he signs a player to a big contract. I hope he can stay healthy.

Barwis marvels at Cespedes.

“He has made an extra level of commitment and with being the world-class athlete that he is, the expectations are limitless,’’ Barwis said in a raspy, “you can do it, bro,’’ voice. “He wants to prove to everyone that the Mets made the right commitment to him. You’re talking about a man who has the potential that few people who walk this earth can ever smell.

“He is inspired to achieve greatness, while inspiring others, a guy like that, there is no stopping him. His workout is phenomenal. He is in here five days a week day pushing hard.’’

New Stat for a Slugger: Back Page Appearances - The New York Times

From all this — which Van Wagenen and Thousand presented in a 100-page book — they came up with a bottom line: Cespedes was worth $34.7 million to the Mets in 2016, or $7.1 million more than the team had paid him.

The message was clear. The Mets, who play in a big market but are restrained in their spending, could afford an expensive — at least for them — new multiyear contract for Cespedes, arguably the most dynamic baseball player in New York. They would make it back, and more.
