Netherlands Antilles Look To Sox-NYY Rivalry?

Gregorius (L); Bogaerts (R)'s David Sabino hints at an interesting new twist in the Red Sox-Yankee rivalry. In 2015, both teams will field young shortstops from the former Netherlands Antilles—Xander Bogaerts from Curaçao and Didi Gregorius from Aruba. Both are relatively young (Bogaerts 22, Gregorius 24)—and both have strikingly similar stats through the early stages...

It just needs to be said: With a name like Didi Gregorius, this guy better be good

Didi Gregorius - the first Knighted Yankee since Sir Sidney Ponson - could turn out to be the most easily mocked name in New York sports history. Even more than Joe Don Looney.Yes, I'm talking about old-fashioned, schoolyard-bully, name-calling.By the way, I'm not proud of this. It doesn't take a lot to sit at home in your underwear and - while sipping from warm cans of PBR - regress...

How the Gregorius trade effects the Mets SS plans

The Mets were never going to trade for Didi Gregorius.  The Diamondbacks asking price was too high (Noah Syndergaard) and Gregorius didn’t fit the Mets’ need for an offensive-minded shortstop.  A platoon-at-best all-glove, no-bat was not going to happen at a steep price.  And the glove isn’t even that good, as both UZR and DRS have Gregorius at average to below-average....

Report: Yankees land Jeter's replacement in Didi Gregorius

With Derek Jeter riding off into the sunset, the Yankees needed a shortstop. The Diamondbacks were always somewhat natural trade partners, given the presence of both Didi Gregorius and Chris Owings. With a little assistance from the Detroit Tigers, it sounds like the teams have finally struck a deal. The reported trade looks something like […]

Evil Ones Looking To Fill Void At SS With Trade

Gregorius Headed To Bronx?One thing is for certain, the 2015 Bronx Embalmers have a lot of issues. Here are just a few: injury risk and age in the starting rotation, a steroid-using horse's rear end coming back and looking for playing time, an under-achieving free-agent catcher, an aging palooka at first base, and big holes at second and short. Kinda makes you smile. According to...

Tigers, Yankees, Diamondbacks talking Didi Gregorius

A three-way trade is in the works that would net the Yankees a possible replacement for Derek Jeter at shortstop – Didi Gregorius. The three-way deal would send Shane Greene from New York to Detroit, a couple of pitchers from Detroit to Arizona, and Gregorius from the desert to the Big Apple. #Yankees working on 3-team deal w/ AZ and DET to land SS Didi Gregorius. Hearing Shane...

Didi Gregorius Drawing Interest, D’Backs Want Pitching

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports is in Phoenix, site of the GM Meetings, where the Arizona D’Backs are seeing a lot of interest in shortstop Didi Gregorius, whom he calls a great athlete and an excellent shortstop. That’s nice and all but I’m still not giving up one of our young pitchers to get him. You want Colon or Gee, I’ll listen, but otherwise… November 10 The Arizona Republic...

Gregorius in the swing of things with new stance

PHOENIX -- Didi Gregorius has a knack for dramatic entrances. He has followed the same script both times the Diamondbacks have summoned him to the majors the last two years. Same phone call. Same plane flight. Same first-at-bat home run. It happened in Yankee Stadium on the first pitch of his first at-bat of the 2013 season last April, and he did it again in Coors Field this May...

Morosi: Pirates interested in Didi Gregorius

Source: Pirates have had trade talks with Diamondbacks about shortstop Didi Gregorius. — Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) March 24, 2014 I suppose if you're narrowly focused on the immediate future (which is understandable, of course) you might not understand why the Pirates would be interested in the Diamondbacks' Didi Gregorius with so many different needs in the rotation and...
