Yo Knows Beisbol. Well now, Yo Knows Dinero. Yo Knows around the tune of 27.5 Million per year.

Yoenis Cespedes was the most sought after free agent once again this offseason. The fact that Sandy Alderson was able to get a deal done before December, just goes to show how important Cespedes is to this team and this fanbase.
