Yoenis Cespedes rode a horse into Mets camp (Video)
Just yesterday, we were talking about Yoenis Cespedes buying a Grand Champion hog. I also said that I couldn't wait to see what comes next from La Potencia. Well, it looks like I got my wish. Cespedes has actually gone from the car show straight to the animal house. According to ESPN's Adam Rubin, something was up Cespedes' sleeve earlier this morning at Mets camp in Florida. The Cuban outfielder rode a horse into Spring Training.
As the news broke out on Twitter, I needed to know more. I was fascinated with just how amazing the legend of Yoenis Cespedes has become. It appears the horse Cespedes was riding on was named Candy. The videos and photos started rolling in, and it was completely worth it. It appears that Cespedes will stop at nothing to entertain himself, the media and Mets fans around the world.
According to SNY's Steve Gelbs, it was pitcher Noah Syndergaard's idea to bring horses to the camp. One picture of Syndergaard on a horse and you can definitely see the resemblance to Thor, the Marvel superhero.
This might be the best Mets spring training of all time, and the games haven't even started yet. The Yankees in the late 70s were referred to as the "Bronx Zoo" and this spring the Mets have literally become zoo owners, whether that was the intention or not.
Cespedes definitely knows how to have a good time, and the young players on the Mets have noticed. Having chemistry is great for a team if they want to make it into the playoffs. The Mets appear to have that fun attitude that will make the Flushing atmosphere rock again like it did last season.
The Mets had a Rally Racoon and thanks to Cespedes, a Rally Parakeet this past season. This year, the hog and the horse will look to lead the Mets back into the Promised Land. This time, just an appearance in the World Series won't be enough for this team. Just look at how majestic he looks (I could be talking about either Cespedes or the horse). Hi-Yo Silver!
