Mets Can't Dispute Yoenis Cespedes' Contract Without Screwing Over GM Brodie Van Wagenen

Yoenis Cespedes' contract has quickly become one of the worst in baseball. The Cuban slugger, who fractured his ankle on Monday, is in the third year of a four-year, $110 million deal.

He's basically been an expensive fixture on the injured list, playing just 118 games since the start of 2017. The problem is, if they even attempted to "go after" his contract, they'd end up screwing over general manager Brodie Van Wagenen.

That's right. If the Mets tried to wiggle their way out of the deal, the agent who forged it -- Van Wagenen -- would have to forfeit part of his commission.

Van Wagenen may be forced to pick between rewarding himself for his hard work in snagging the deal for his former client and the well-being of the roster he now has control over.

It doesn't get more "Mets" than that, folks.

The man literally fell into a hole, and in doing so, may have screwed over both his team and his general manager.

Betwen Bobby Bonilla, David Wright and Yoenis Cespedes, it just doesn't seem like the Mets have much luck with big-time contracts.
