Yoenis Cespedes Made A Really, Really Dumb Move, Allows Inconceivable Inside-The-Park Home Run
Ah, yes, spring training. It’s a time for players to work on their swings, loosen up their minds and bodies for a long season and, you know, have a little bit of fun.
Unfortunately, it’s also a time for some really bad baseball—and New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes just made one of the dumbest mistakes you’ll ever see.
In today’s game against the Houston Astros, Cespedes decided to argue with an umpire about a ball that got stuck beneath the outfield wall rather than, you know, just pick the damn thing up and throw it back to the infield. In doing so, the Astros’ A.J. Reed hustled around the bases and scored on an inside-the-park home run.
This is bad, but at least people know who Cespedes is, unlike another spring training gaffe which had some unknown minor league player standing on third base during a recent Cardinals-Mets game.
Baseball season’s here, guys, so let’s embrace these little mistakes now before the real games start.
