While there isn't much for fans to pay attention to during the early days of spring training, Yoenis Cespedes has given everyone something to watch in his own personal car show at New York Mets camp throughout this week.
Cespedes got everyone's attention by tweeting out a teaser Thursday:
On Friday, he followed through by arriving in his customized Jeep:

Does Cespedes have a favorite car? According to MLB.com's Anthony DiComo, the outfielder prefers his latest ride above the rest:
Although the Jeep may be his favorite, he chose a different set of wheels as "the most fun":
Some have ripped Cespedes for dropping hefty chunks of change on all of these cars. But let's not forget he also just signed a three-year, $75 million deal this past offseason. And as DiComo points out, the cars aren't making a huge dent in Cespedes' bank account:
Also, luxury cars are something he has worked hard for:
Cespedes says he rode a bike in Cuba and walked. "After I got here I saw the possibilities that I can have I want, so I worked hard for it."— Anthony DiComo (@AnthonyDiComo) February 26, 2016
Cespedes has performed well enough to earn himself a large contract. If he wants to spend some of his money on fun cars, that's certainly his right.
