The Showcase Video For Cuban Baseball Star Yoenis Cespedes Is The Best Or Worst Thing Ever | Sharapova's Thigh

Cuban centerfielder Yoenis Cespedes is quite a talented ballplayer. The 26-year-old(or so they say) defected from Cuba this summer, and is expected to receive a contract in the $30 million range from an MLB team.

To promote Cespedes to MLB clubs, his agent put together a "showcase" video. Typically, these will just feature highlights of the player that show the player's ability to hit, throw, catch, run, etc, in a favorable manner. It's a way to sell the player, when a simple tryout, or small sample size of games that organizations may see of the player, might not show enough(at least in the minds of the agent/player).

Well, Cespedes' showcase video... I can't decide if I love it or hate it. It's... different. It's... something, that's for sure.

And it's 20 minutes, but you need(for better or worse) to watch it all(and I suggest reading the detailed write-up about it from Baseball Prospectus' Kevin Goldstein before viewing):
