FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING TRADE DEADLINE NEWS: MEST ACQUIRE YOENIS CESPEDES FROM TIGERS

The New York Mets finally pulled the trigger on a trade for an outfielder after whiffing both on Carlos Gomez and Jay Bruce.  They came to an agreement with the Detroit Tigers to obtain Yoenis Cespedes for two pitching prospects that did not include Zack Wheeler.  Cespedes will be a free agent at the end of the season.

Analysis:  Finally.  The Mets got the better player in Cespedes over Bruce so they win there.  Cespedes will anchor the middle of the lineup with his power, which has been good but not great this season.  What has been very good is Cespedes' batting average which was an issue in the past. 
The fact the Mets got to hold onto Wheeler was also big for them.
