Shortly after the reported deal broke, Jerry Seinfeld took to Twitter to express his pleasure over the deal and, more importantly, compared the deal to one of his show’s most famous moments: Festivus.
"I reached for Cespedes, but so did another team. As I rained money upon him, I realized there had to be another way. A one-year opt out."
— Jerry Seinfeld (@JerrySeinfeld) January 23, 2016
Seinfeld has reason to celebrate as Cespedes played great when he came over to the Mets a in mid-season trade from the Detroit Tigers, hitting .287/.337/.604 with 17 home runs and 44 RBI in 57 games played.
Rejoice! It’s a Cespedes for the rest of us!
