The great "Replace Papi World Tour" may have another candidate soon. Reports out of New York make it unclear whether former Carmine Hoser Yoenis Cespedes wants to remain with the Metropolitans or not. He has an 'opt-out' clause in his three-year pact after one season—which is now. Most observers think it would be foolish for the 30-year old Cuban not to test the free agent market. After all, he clouted 31 HRs last season (while also hitting a decent .280). He would likely fetch a contract in the $200 million neighborhood—not a bad zip code. Cespedes would be an intriguing choice for Boston—he's been here before, is younger than other options, and offers the flexibility of playing the OF or DH-ing. Stay tuned!
