Photos of the Day: Manny Ramirez and Yoenis Cespedes take BP

Mar 10, 2012, 1:21 PM EDT

I know we already had a Photo of the Day. I don’t care. Batting practice was fun this morning. The pics are real. The dialogue, I made up.

Manny Ramirez: See the ball, hit the ball. That’s all you gotta do, Yoenis. It’s really easy.

Yoenis Cespedes:  I see the ball …

Yoenis Cespedes: I hit the ball.

Contrary to popular belief, the ball does not make a different sound off Cespedes’ bat in BP. But he does hit the ball really damn hard.

    That ball went “sailing”

    I’m so used to seeing Cespedes shirtless, that the sight of him in a uniform seems novel. You sure that’s him, Craig? Maybe catch him in frame with a coconut palm and some sand behind him, just to be sure.

    45 HR, 100 RBI coming up for Cespedes!

      Are those projected career totals?

        2-2 in his spring training debut today….with a HR,,,,, paperlion…what do you think?

        I think Jeff Francis hasn’t been healthy for about 4 years and has an 85 MPH fastball.

        Interesting view….

        Prior to the HR he fouled off 3 or 4 good pitches from the left hander…but you seem to think he is a wasted roster spot on the Reds club,,,,

        The jury is still out….but he should be a good healthy Athletic for 3 years before he heads elsewhere….

        I still stand by my prediction…..45 and 100…..
