Luxury cars are so last week.
New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes spent the first week of spring training putting on his own personal car show at Mets camp, driving everything from a Polaris Slingshot to an Alfa Romeo to a tricked-out Jeep. What was next for the 30-year-old?
A horse. More specifically, a horse named Candy, according to Marc Carig of Newsday:

For what it's worth, this appears to have been Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard's idea:
In case you were wondering, Carig also reported that Syndergaard's horse does not have a name:

The official MLB Twitter account challenged Cespedes this past weekend to top Miguel Cabrera's golf cart. And you better believe he responded in grand fashion.
