Poll: Sign Yoenis Cespedes for 6/$150M?

Should the Texas Rangers sign Yoenis Cespedes for $150 million?

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Rangers have a need for righthanded power, and with Yoenis Cespedes being a righthanded power hitting free agent, it has been suggested he could be a target of the Rangers.  Jon Heyman predicts Cespedes will get $150 million over six years (though he doesn't specifically identify a signing team), while Dave Cameron predicts Texas signs Cespedes for 7 years, $150 million.

So I figured I'd ask the readers of Lone Star Ball...should the Rangers sign Cespedes for $150 million over six years (the figure Heyman estimates)?

And to be clear, "sure, its not my money" is not a viable answer -- we are assuming that the Rangers will be operating under a budget similar to their 2015 payroll, as Jon Daniels has indicated is likely, with future payroll increases that will be gradual, not dramatic.

So what say you?  Yay or nay to Yoenis Cespedes as a Ranger at 6/$150M?
