Thoughts On The Headley Signing

"Headley is deadly!"We heard this phrase a lot last year after Chase Headley was traded to the Yankees last season. However, now that he has signed a free agent deal with the team, I am worried that it will turn into something more along the lines of "Headley's contract is deadly!"Four years/$51 million includes one year too many for a player with a history of back problems who hit...

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...

Featured Post: A Puzzling Asking Price and Return for Gregorius

The Yankees decided to swoop in and get themselves a shortstop this week, something that seems impossible for the New York Mets. What is confusing is the return for Didi Gregorius.

Patience Is Mets’ Winter Meetings Approach

The Mets enter the Winter Meetings with three needs, but don’t expect any to be met soon because of their approach of waiting out the process. They are seeking a shortstop, a right-handed bat off the bench and left-handed reliever. The Mets want an upgrade over shortstop Wilmer Flores, but for now aren’t biting on Stephen Drew, Asdrubal Cabrera or Jed Lowrie. They could have...

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....

Foiling A Robbery

So there’s a replacement out there for Derek Jeter. His name is Didi Gregorius, who the Yankees traded for in a three way deal involving Shane Greene going to Detroit, and prospects Robbie Ray and Domingo Leyba. Gregorius is a good fit for the Yankees, as while he might not be a huge upgrade from the Derek Jeter of 2014, he’ll be a huge upgrade defensively. As for the Mets, well...

Flores Buys Mets Time

With the Winter Meetings days away, the Mets’ shortstop options are dwindling. You can scratch Didi Gregorius from their list today after Arizona traded him to the Yankees in a three-way deal that also included Detroit. GREGORIUS: Never a real option. (Getty) We’ve gone over the Mets’ options several times this week, and to me it all comes back to Wilmer Flores. Flores isn’t...
