Yoenis Cespedes Stays In New York

There was little hope of the Yankees signing Yoenis Cespedes, and now there is none.

Oh, what could have been.

Jim Bowden of ESPN is reporting that Cespedes and the Mets have agreed to a three-year contract worth $75 million. According to those same reports, Yoenis can opt-out of the deal after this season.

While the Washington Nationals had apparently offered Cespedes a five-year deal, and the Baltimore Orioles showed interest before re-signing Chris Davis, the Yankees were never had serious interest.

There's been a lot of talk about the Yankees trading Brett Gardner, and I believe they would like that. However, Brian Cashman hasn't been able to get what he wants in return... good/young starting pitching.

I looked at the transactions that have happened this late in the offseason the past few years, and there's been nothing big. So if anyone had hopes of something significant happening I'm afraid you're out of luck.
