The Mets Must Sign Yoenis Cespedes

The ball really flies at Coors Field in Denver, but Yoenis Cespedes put on a clinic last night as he hit 3 home runs with 7 RBIs in a 14-9 victory over the Rockies.  Travis d'Arnaud and Michael Conforto also homered for the Mets.  They are currently 5 games ahead in the National League East with 41 games to play.

This season reminds me of 1985 when the Mets got their act together, but fell a little short.  I think that barring a collapse the Mets should take the division, but after what happened in 2007 and 2008 I can't count my chickens until they hatch.  It will be very tough to get by the Cardinals or the Dodgers in the division series.

By next year the team should be more mature, but to dominate the division and move ahead in the playoffs they must sign Yoenis Cespedes as they signed Mike Piazza in 1999,  Will 2016 be like 1986?  Only time will tell.
