Yoenis Cespedes ‘looks like a monster’



Yoenis Cespedes 'looks like a monster'

Luis Rojas is optimistic and Michael Conforto is truly effusive, praising his team mate.

It’s only two days leading to spring 2.0 training, but Yoenis Cespedes already has the Mets who believe he can make a big impact in this 60-match short season.

“He looks like a monster,” Conforto said, smiling on Saturday at Zoom’s call from Citi Field. “He looks like he’s motivated. He looks like he’s in shape. I’ve seen a number of things he did to prepare himself, some videos of him exercising on his farm, he must be hungry.”

Cespedes, who was absent throughout last season and most of 2018 suffered multiple leg injuries, regularly does direct hitting and catching flying balls on the field during short spring training. Rojas received a positive report that he was running during the 19th COVID layoff, offering hope for returning to action. On Fridays and Saturdays, Cespedes takes part in light training without limits.

The first year manager warned that in the days to come there would be more tests for Cespedes because the exercise increased intensity and he had to prove able to run the base. However, so far, many positive things, especially with the emergence of DH in the National League, give sluggers the opportunity to avoid playing full-time playing.

“He moves well,” Rojas said. “He looks very good, moves, and also plays flying balls. He has a few drive lines back, a drive line and so he looks good in getting the position of Fungo, so I hope to keep the bat developing looking at things and maybe when we get a few bats alive- he can play back there in defense. “

It has been a long time since the 34-year-old Cespedes last played for the Mets, his last match coming on July 20, 2018. Since then, he has had surgery on each of his heels and suffered an ankle fracture due to an accident on his farm involving wild boar. Now he plays for a contract, in his last season of a four-year contract, $ 110 million. When he was healthy, he had been in production, reaching two All-Star Games and leading the Mets to postseason in his first two years with them in 2015 and 2016.

He will definitely be a significant addition to an already tough lineup. That will deepen the Mets’ punch sequence, creating the 3-4-5 potential of potential Cespedes, Pete Alonso and Conforto.

“He is just the guy you missed,” Conforto said. “I’m glad he’s back and he feels good. Hopefully he can do what he does best for us and really bring lightning with his stick and make some great games on the pitch.”

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
