The New York Mets acquired Yoenis Cespedes in a trade with the Detroit Tigers on Friday, and Mets fans everywhere rejoiced at the news.

New Yorkers are hoping the outfielder is a remedy to the team's offensive woes, as the Mets currently have the worst team batting average in the majors. 

Noted Mets fan Jerry Seinfeld was among those excited, and the Seinfeld co-creator just couldn't resist the opportunity to make a brilliant Festivus reference on Twitter.
