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...

Derek Who? This is the dawning of the Age of Gregorius, the Age of Gregorious... Gregorious! GREGORIUS!

An Open Letter To Didi Gregorius

Dear Didi (or, Sir Didi if you prefer): Let’s be clear. Nobody is putting all the blame on you for the Yankees 3-5 record, or for their place at the bottom of the A.L. East. That wouldn’t be fair. Between Masahiro Tanaka’s subpar starts, CC Sabathia’s poor starts (although last nights 7 IP and 4 ER was an improvement) and poor situational hitting with RISP, there’s plenty...

New York Yankees Opening Day lineup issues

Opening Day across Major League Baseball has come and gone and fans of the Yankees were left with plenty to bellyache about in the Bronx. Most will complain about Masahiro Tanaka, who’s bum elbow surrendered 5 runs in just 4 innings pitched. Others will point at the Yankees 3 total hits as foreshadowing of what’s to come this season. And if they aren’t petered out at that...

Yankees’ Didi Gregorius must exceed 2014 version of Derek Jeter

The New York Yankees do not need new shortstop Didi Gregorius to be Derek Jeter from the glory years, nor does he profile to be the type of player the former captain once was, but he can still make a positive impact on the club in 2015. For starters, improvement on Jeter's 2014 performance in the field and at the plate will set the tone for Gregorius' future standing with the...

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...

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 […]

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...
