Yoenis Cespedes' newest tricked out vehicle is an actual tricycle

Apparently there is a line Yoenis Cespedes won't cross when it comes to his Spring Training antics.

Let us explain: After his car collection and horseback adventure garnered national attention, Cespedes asked his car guy, Alex Vega of the Auto Firm, to customize a tricycle for him -- a tricked-out version of the one he used to ride in Cuba, before he could afford fancy cars or horses or blue-ribbon pigs. So Vega did, outfitting it in the same white-and-red color scheme as Cespedes' Jeep.

Originally, Cespedes planned to ride the trike to Mets camp last Friday. But after manager Terry Collins preached that "fun time's over," telling his players to buckle down in advance of Grapefruit League games, Cespedes changed his plans.

It's a shame, because the tricycle is not your average preschooler's. For starters, it's big enough to fit a 210-pound All-Star baseball player. Featuring a red leather seat with white baseball-style stitching, the bike has a bright red air horn attached to the front, and a white basket in the back with a Cuban flag flying from it.

It seems Cespedes isn't done spending on cars, either. The outfielder also recently paid out of his own pocket to customize a Mets staffer's Buick -- the same staffer who borrowed his Lamborghini to buy a round waffle iron at Target.

No word on whether the tricycle, the Buick, the horses or the waffle iron will make an appearance at Cespedes' next pig roast, which seems imminent at this point.

But, yeah, fun time's over ... for now.
