Marlins are "being very aggressive" on Cuban Outfielder Yoenis Cespedes

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Marlins "are being very aggressive" on Cuban outfielder Yoenis Cespedes.
Danny Knobler of reported Friday that the Marlins might not pursue Cespedes as hard as originally thought, but Cafardo evidently is hearing differently.

Cafardo adds that the Nationals are "right behind" the Marlins, the Phillies "are always sneaky" and the Cubs, Red Sox, and Yankees "appear intrigued by his tools." Cespedes is expected to be granted free agency in the early part of January.

Take a look at Cespedes on this video to see what all these teams are looking at:

The Mets could use a talent like this in center field, but the Mets still are counting their change.

Cespedes is labeled the next Major League Phenom
