Cespedes says staying with Mets always was his preference

NEW YORK (AP) Yoenis Cespedes says he chose happiness over more dollars.

Of course, the lower offer was a $75 million, three-year contract that kept him with the New York Mets.

"It's not always about the amount of money being offered," he said through a translator Wednesday in his first public comments about his Jan. 22 decision. "It's about wanting to be in a place you want to play in, that you're happy in. And as you can see, this is just what happened in that case."
