Cespedes has opted out of the remainder of the season
When your contract is 4 years, $110mm (and you're getting $6mm even in this shortened season) and you haven't played in 2 years but you're still getting paid and you're a free agent at the end of the year ... one might choose to do the decent thing and call before the game and let'em know you're taking it to the house. He was batting .162 so I think this is more about quitting on his team than "corona-related absense."

I agree 100%, but since he is a Met, I'll give him a pass. :LOL:
