Yoenis Cespedes strikes back with new video

Yoenis Cespedes
By C. Trent Rosecrans

The Marlins, Red Sox, Phillies, Tigers and Cubs have all seen Cuban outfielder Yoenis Cespedes work out -- and how do we know? Cespedes' agent has released another video on YouTube, featuring Cespedes' workouts and pictures of the 26-year-old with the likes of Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria and manager Ozzie Guillen, Red Sox hitting coach Dave Magadan, the Phillies' Pat Gillick and the Tigers' Willie Horton. There's also video of what the caption tells us is a private workout for the Cubs.

While the new video isn't as entertaining or outlandish as the one that introduced us to Cespedes last month, but it does show a lot more of why teams are interested in him -- as Cespedes not only shows off his impressive workout skills, but also baseball skills in nearly 10 minutes of batting practice footage, in addition to sprints and outfield drills.

Sadly, there are no cooking segments this time, even though the Star Wars-style intro remains, but there is a bonus scene after the credits, so make sure you stick around.

$60m - no way, prove it for a year at MLB level, then talk about $$$m
Can he play at the Major League level ? That is the million dollar question, the only way any one know if he is any good. If some team take a chance on him, now I think that my favorite team could use a better Of then what they have.

Bonds like - watches ball go out

Sosa like - got that hop down

Mays like - naw, no one like Willie

Watch those knees - gonna blow them out with those type of presses.

Nice hitting  - course is AA/AAA pitching at best.

Long ball - in AA/AAA stadiums at best

Good athlete - yes

Great athelete - maybe

$60m - no way, prove it for a year at MLB level, then talk about $$$m
