Cespedes: Yoenis is reportedly meeting with Miami tomorrow to discuss a possibility of signing with the team. However, according to team president David Samson, Cespedes is not needed. “We want him, but we don’t need him,” Samson said. “The difference is this: When you want a player, you aggressively go out and try to sign him.

He is one of the most talented players to play the game. He is the closest we’ll ever get to having another Michael Jordan. Here’s a clip describing Michael Jordan’s dominance in the NBA:
