    Is Cespedes a keeper?

    The good news:


    Only 12 OF have more HR over the last three years, and 8 of them are awful defenders.


    The bad news:


    He hasn't been even an average fielder, and he is likely to be worse in his thirties.


    A .294 OBP over the last two years.


    Park adjusted he is the 35th best hitting OF for 2014.


     


    With the league wide offensive drop he must be considered, but I'd hope someone better is found.

    It all depends on money. He is obviously a starting outfielder in the majors and he has power.  It depends on what he wants.

    That's sort of the way I feel about living in Halifax.  We're in Canada but we're closer to New England than we are to the heart of our own country.

    Ces probably isn't a long term fit unless he improves his OBP.  We can't have Ces and JBJ playing daily even with their great arms anymore than we should start Holt at 3B and Bogy at SS every day.

    I dont think I would pay him what he can probably get. I would not mind flipping him for a nice piece.  I think he is average to below in a lot of areas.
