Report: Cuban Defector Yoenis Cespedes High Atop Yankees’ Offseason Wish List


A home run is just a home run, until it’s set to Christopher CrossSailing.

A new 20-minute long video highlights the accomplishments of Cuban defector Yoenis Cespedes, a center fielder who is being touted as “a hitting version of Aroldis Chapman,” set to the most random selection of music likely to be seen in a viral video.

Cespedes, whom hardcore baseball fans will recognize from the 2009 World Baseball Classic, reportedly is available via free agency to major league teams. The (allegedly) 26-year-old center fielder worked out Friday in the Dominican Republic, Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan reports.

The Yankees are especially high on Cespedes, who has been compared to top Angels prospect Mike Trout for their similar size and tools, Yahoo! Sports reports.

All that is just background for this absolutely epic video, however. Chrisopher Cross spliced with Jay-Z and Dip Set? Trick catches? Shirtless wind sprints? Three full minutes of closing credits? A pig roasting on a spit?

You’ll find it all in the video below. (Note: Video has been deleted on YouTube.)
