Yoenis Cespedes homers in Oakland Athletics debut

Suddenly the Oakland A’s seem like a different team. It’s only one Spring Training game, but for most people that’s all they have to go on with Yoenis Cespedes — besides that amazing, ridiculous promotional video.

Cespedes started off with a 6-pitch walk, singled in his second plate appearance and fouled off several pitches before crushing a home run to left in his third.

Check it out. Impressive, to say the least.

We’re working with a very small sample size (thank you, Capt. Obvious) … but if Cespedes is legit the Athletics may have a Ricky Rubio situation on their hands (without the torn ACL, hopefully). Cespedes is big, strong and fast. He’s also totally new and has talent to spare. Will he sell tickets in Oakland? The early returns look promising.
