Yoenis Cespedes And Jerry Seinfeld: A Budding Bromance Over A Cuban Sandwich

For a long time, the only common thread between baseball star Yoenis Cespedes and comedian Jerry Seinfeld is that they were two people who have never been in my kitchen. But ever since Cespedes was traded to Seinfeld’s favorite team, the New York Mets, the two have been linked together by love of baseball.

And of course, by food. Here’s a tweet from last week from Seinfeld to his newest hero:

Yoenis, of course, responded a few days later:

Well now the stakes have been raised, as the Mets and Cespedes have become more active in trying to make this Sandwich Summit happen:

It looks like this is cemented in stone … or at least ham, cheese, and a pickle. Your move, Jerry. Just don’t stuff him too much. He’s gotta stay fit for the pennant race. (But if he wants soup on the side … let him have the soup. I hear the Jambalaya is good this time of year.)
