Yoenis Cespedes: ‘It’s No Secret’ That The Red Sox Are A Great Team (Video)

In being traded from the Oakland Athletics to the Boston Red Sox on Thursday, outfielder Yoenis Cespedes went from a team that some favor to win this year’s World Series to a team sitting in the basement of the American League East.

But Cespedes doesn’t think that Boston’s current record is a good reflection of the type of team they’ve been in recent history.

“Oakland in the past three years has turned itself into a winning team, the same way Boston was,” Cespedes said during his first press conference at Fenway Park on Friday. “We’ve become accustomed to playing winning baseball.

“I think that we can achieve the same thing with this team. It’s no secret to anybody that this is a great team. That’s evident by the amount of World Series we’ve won here in Boston.”

Check out the rest of Cespedes’ press conference in the video above.
