Yoenis Cespedes Will Risk His Lamborghini To Avoid Square Waffles

Yoenis Cespedes has been making a splash during spring training. Not so much regarding how far he’s hitting the baseball in batting practice, or how he’s adjusting to life as primarily a center fielder, but for the cars that he has been driving to spring training. He has driven a different car to camp each day this week, each more expensive than the last. (Note: Cespedes is being paid $27.5 million this season so it isn’t like he doesn’t have the money.)

On Wednesday, Cespedes arrived in a $400,000 Lamborghini. But here’s the weird part: He entrusted said car to a Mets staffer to go pick up something for him. Something not quite as expensive as the car:

Cespedes arrived in style on Wednesday — only to find out that he would be forced to eat square waffles. Which, the Mets star apparently does not do.

So what does a superstar do in a situation this dire? Tell a team staffer to hop in your $400,000 Lambo —€“ the same one that shoots flames out of the tailpipe — and buy a round waffle maker.

So to review, Cespedes gladly let a Mets employee drive his $400K car to go and buy a $30 waffle maker because heaven forbid his waffles have corners. This is a real, honest to goodness story that ended well because the staffer didn’t crash the car. I’m sure that Cespedes’ good friend Jerry Seinfeld would have loved to use this as a script for his old show.
