Yoenis Cespedes says ‘I’m going to play the last year of my career with Oakland’

Oakland is visiting New York for a series against the New York Mets this weekend, and the occasion gave outfielder Yoenis Cespedes the opportunity to appreciate his former club and reminisce a little.

In regards to possibly one day going back to play for the Oakland A’s, Cespedes told the San Francisco Chronicle,

“I wish that happens. I told Blevins, ‘I don’t know how many years I’m going to play, but I’m going to play the last year of my career with Oakland.’ I don’t know if that’s possible or not, but that’s my goal.”

This tweet seems different, though (if only slightly different), mostly because there are ways that this challenge could pan out in the real world without too much effort.

Canseco clearly knows his own limits here. He gives himself a softball to hit rather than a baseball. While still difficult to hit very far, it does give him a little bit of an advantage.

The other reason this tweet is great is that Jose plainly presents his biggest weakness — his age — right in the tweet. He’s not trying to pull one over on anyone here. He fully thinks that despite a 30-year age difference he could come out on top.

He’s so confident in this unlikely outcome that it makes me want this to happen more than I otherwise would. Canseco is not joking here, and if Judge were down for it there’s a good chance this could be set up after the playoffs are over.

I agree, though, that the Stanton-Judge rivalry makes this even more Minnesota Vikings Cheap Jerseys exciting. I mean, if you can even call it a rivalry — it’s more that the world has decided these are our two NBA Basketball Jerseys Large Adult Sons and they’re going head-to-head.

MLB trade rumors: Dodgers ‘confident’ of completing blockbuster trade by deadline

The Dodgers have built a commanding lead in the National League West, but they aren’t satisfied with their current roster.

“I guess there might be a fleeting moment where you say, ‘This might have been the last time,’ but it is very fleeting,” Verlander said, via MLive.com. “It is in the back of your mind that you never know what can happen. There is a moment walking off the mound you just take a second to appreciate it. I know I didn’t acknowledge it coming off the mound, probably because we are in the middle of a tie game.

Ervin Santana’s start may not have been perfect, but the value of the complete game is so overlooked in today’s game that his performance Wednesday deserves its just due. Santana tossed a complete game in 110 pitches, striking out nine and allowing just two runs on four hits and a walk in the Twins’ 5-2 win over the Padres. With the trade of Brandon Kintzler, the Twins need to give their bullpen a rest every chance they get and Santana did just that, as he has all year long. This was his fifth complete game of the season. The next closest starter to that in the league this year has two.

“The new system is also, well, newer to the parks — we’ve had NBA Basketball Jerseys the others for up to 10 years — so the kinks need to be ironed out. Radar processing is also slower, more subject to electronic interference.”

The big question, of course, is whether the technology is at a point where we New York Giants Cheap Jerseys could take calling the balls and strikes out of the hands of humans and put in an automated system. Based on recent changes, probably not. Pavlidis sees a way forward, however.
