Nobody was happier that the Mets signed outfielder Yoenis Cespedes to a three-year, $75 million deal on Friday night than the team's most famous fan — Jerry Seinfeld.
And the New York comedian summed up the Metsies' enthusiasm over the news with a pair of tweets:
It even sounded like he helped seal the deal with the Cuban star.Yes-pedes! @Mets— Jerry Seinfeld (@JerrySeinfeld) January 23, 2016
"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
Not that there is anything wrong with that.
