Cespedes for the rest of this?

Pending his health and current conditioning, the A’s should consider taking a flyer on Yoenis Cespedes for the playoff run. It could be a win-win situation for both sides if he’s anywhere near his previous form. If he’s motivated to prove that he can still play in the majors and can provide another dynamic to the offense, it could be a game changer. Brown has been ok and has hit a few clutch home runs, but a healthy Cespedes in right field could help offset the loss of Laureano’s energy on the field and possibly gun down a few runners trying to take 3rd. Seems like a low risk deal with huge potential upside and Cespedes sure fits the Moneyball definition of a "misfit toy". Just a thought…
