Yoenis Cespedes Not Down On Marlins

Cuban outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is a free agent. Fantastic! And fantastically exciting for the Miami Marlins, who recently volunteered the information that they would be "aggressive right to the point of stupidity" when it came to trying to sign him. Now the Marlins can try to sign him!

Oh, but wait, what's that? There are whispers that Cespedes doesn't want to play for the Marlins? That doesn't really make any sense, but okay, I guess that's new information we have to keep in mind. Maybe he'll go somewhere else. Maybe he'll go to the Cubs.

Well actually now you can forget about that last paragraph. From Joe Frisaro:

Hearing Cespedes has no issues against playing for #Marlins

It's hearsay against hearsay, but the hearsay from Frisaro seems more legitimate since you'd think if anything Miami would be a more appealing potential destination for a player like Cespedes. People can have their own reasons for things, and none of us has any idea how Cespedes truly feels, but it would be...weird if he had something against playing for the Marlins. He probably doesn't.

The bidding war will begin. We know that the Marlins will make an aggressive push. We don't know if anybody else will match or exceed their aggressiveness. Throughout the proceedings I'm sure Twitter will remain calm and composed.
