How Didi Gregorius is undermining his breakout

At this very moment Didi Gregorius is in the midst of a textbook breakout. It’s worth questioning what kind of educational literature would contain the definition of a breakout for a baseball player, but presuming that it exists, Gregorius is certainly conforming to its demands. The 26-year-old is an above-average offensive contributor for the first time of career, thanks in large...

Is Didi Gregorius for Real?

Playing shortstop is a young man’s game. The list of top-tier shortstops age 25 and under in the game right now is so extensive that it’s impossible to pare down to a quick three- or four-name list without leaving off a potential future MVP. If you’re interested in fawning over those names and debating who among them is the most valuable, I’d recommend keeping an eye on Dave...

Didi Gregorius is finally getting the Yankee Stadium boost

Whenever the New York Yankees acquire a left-handed hitter, there is always hope that Yankee Stadium will be good to them.

Didi Gregorius is coming into his own in 2016

I have a somewhat embarrassing confession to make. When Didi Gregorius was with the Arizona Diamondbacks, I used to call him Cha Cha DeGregorio. If you don’t know who that is, ask your parents about the movie “Grease.” And it wasn’t meant in a derogatory way or as a way to insult him, it’s just that his last name reminded me of DeGregorio. When anyone mentions Dee Gordon...

WATCH: Yankees put together big comeback to beat Rangers

A five-run lead for any team in the eighth inning usually is enough, especially for the Texas Rangers, who have the second-best record in Major League Baseball this season. But the New York Yankees made sure that wasn’t the case Wednesday night. The Yankees got one back in the bottom of the eighth inning on a Brian McCann home run, and then they proceeded to score six more runs...

The Evolution Of Didi Gregorius

Evaluating shortstops in the major leagues is as difficult a task as any. Generally, and there are most certainly exceptions, they are among the worst hitters in a team's lineup. Coupling that with the complexity involved in evaluating their position defensively makes it tough to hold shortstops to a similar standard set by their peers.  Of course the left fielder that hits...
