REPORT: Sox Coaches 'Hate' Yoenis Cespedes

While it's important to consider the source (a New York-based sportswriter), it's still disturbing to hear rumors that Red Sox coaches "hate" Yoenis Cespdes. According to The New York Post's Bill Madden, the fact that Cespedes switched agents (moving to the annoying Jay-Z's organization) increased the chances of Boston dealing the outfielder this Winter. Madden added two other reasons why the Red Sox might look to trade him—his "disenchantment" with Boston and the talk that the team's coaches "hate" him. Said a source listed as a "Red Sox insider", "He marches to his own drum and the coaches all hate him." So, clearly, this news deflates Cespedes' trade value—just what Madden would like to get him more easily to a New York team. Again, consider the source.
