Yoenis Cespedes: Mayor of Bomb City

So much for Oakland A's rookie outfielder Yoenis Cespedes starting the season off slowly.  Depsite many predictions that the Cuban import would struggle against MLB pitching, he has already hit three home runs in four games this seasons.  His stat line so far: .308/.400/1.077 with 3 home runs and 7 RBI.  Yeah, yeah, we're only four games into the season, so who cares about stats.  Well, they're still pretty impressive.  If you want more proof that Cespedes should be given the keys to Bomb City, check out this absolute blast he hit on Friday night.

I don't care if the guy hits .240 the rest of the season.  If he keeps hitting taters like that, people will keep watching him.  That is just absolute raw power right there.  See ball, hit ball, watch ball go a very long way.  I would already give him a nomination for the home run derby this year.  In fact, I've already drafted Cespedes in two fantasy baseball drafts, one before the season started (so I benefited from his home runs and I can tell people that I knew he was going to play well, of course) and one last night.  Looks like he could be the sleeper pick of the season.  We will just have to wait and see.
