Like most Mets fans, Mike Piazza is hoping Yoenis Cespedes, who is expected to opt out of his contract for free agency as soon as the World Series is over, will be back with the club next season. As a ballplayer, he also knows how the off-season financial game is played.
“Obviously, he’s a great player and I don’t know what his status is now, but it’s part of the game,” the newly minted Hall of Fame catcher told CNY in an exclusive interview following the ArchCare 2016 Gala at Gotham Hall Oct. 27.
“I don’t know if he’s leveraging. I look at it this way. Mets fans love him. I know they would welcome him back with open arms, but ultimately it’s up to him,” Piazza said. “Maybe he’ll realize how much he’s obviously loved here. But again I was that same guy. I thought I’d be a Dodger. I ended up being a Met. So we’ll we what happens. He has an out, so there’s a chance he could leave, but he’s been very productive here and I hope he stays.”
