Stop horsing around.
With a circus-like atmosphere at Mets camp becoming more Barnum & Bailey by the day, manager Terry Collins wants his team to take a more businesslike approach.
After Noah Syndergaard and Yoenis Cespedes rode on horseback Tuesday across the team’s spring-training complex, Collins said he spoke to players about putting the focus on the upcoming season.
“The fun time is over, it’s time to get ready for baseball,” Collins said.
Syndergaard and Cespedes’ horse ride came after a week in which Cespedes grabbed the spotlight by arriving in six different fancy vehicles, which exceeded $1 million in total value. Cespedes also recently paid $7,000 for a 270-pound pig at a nearby county fair.
Syndergaard took credit for the horseback arrival, saying he came up with the idea recently and pitched it to Cespedes, who owns horses on a ranch in Vero Beach.http://nypost.com/2016/03/01/cespedes-horses-are-the-last-straw-for-terry-collins/?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=NYPFacebook&utm_medium=SocialFlow
