Well that didn’t take too long. A little over 24 hours have passed since the Boston Red Sox and Oakland Athletics pulled off a blockbuster deal that sent Yoenis Cespedes to Boston in exchange for left-handed starter Jon Lester.
And the Red Sox already have Cespedes’ apparel at their team stores.

You have to give them credit for being on the ball and pumping this out so quickly. Cespedes now figures to play an important role in Boston’s attempt to forget about what has been a disastrous season. He could very well turn into the face of the franchise at some point in the not-so-distant future.
