Didi is a better fielding SS than Jeter ever was. Jeter made the incredible play and was solid. He was also a big time, clutch hitter, but with only occasional power. Better average hitter than Didi, but nowhere near the power.


Arod, as much as I did not like him and disregarding PED use, may have been the best all around SS ever. He was one of the greatest power hitters of all time with a great arm.


So, NO he is not Arod, but (GULP, hard for me to say) no SS who has ever played put up the kind of numbers Arod did.




Glad that you can give A-Rod the credit he deserves ... no matter how things went with him with the Yankees ... he was a special player.




As you know, Mo, I never liked him and was admittedly rough on him in my posting. However, you would have to be blind not to see how talented he was.





Arod was a lieing, cheating, phoney.... I can't stand to look at his face or listen to him speak. He's such a fraud. And his soon to be wife should stop wearing fur... it's disgusting! How many poor defensele animals have been unmercifully tortured to cover her fat ass!

I kind of look at Didi if signed filling two infield positions, I'm not sure we have a really good first baseman unless DJL is playing it ?? If Didi doesn't come back it will force Torres to play SS, if that happens it will weaken our infield defense...




Agreed! Didi makes SS better, and 1B better (by having LeMaheiu there). I think Torres can one day be a gold glove 2B, but I do not believe he will be at SS.




I would love to hear valid reasons people have that Didi is so much better on defense than Torres. Is it his range? Arm? The Arm that is no where near as strong as it was before the TJ surgery. Is it his going back on pop ups? Seems like Torres is 10 times better at going back than Didi is so it can't be that.  Has anyone noticed how many times DJ has had to fall down to catch a Didi throw the last few week of the season and  post season?


How about what does Torres do so badly that it requires us to spend money we need for pitching on Didi, while we watch him kill rally after rally with bases loaded because he can't help himself from swinging at the first pitch and popping up, like he has for the 1,327,556 times he has done it looking for that crowd pleasing granny that he has gotten only once or twice. Sort of gets tiring and very frustrating after awhile.




Didi is definitely not as bad as you make it out ... you really do hate the guy.




 I just told what he does Mo,  I wasn't making it out.  It is what he does. OMG, hate is a strong word Mo. I don't hate Didi and yes I was a fan of his. I like his energy and his being a great teammate. I like the life he brings to that dugout.  What I strongly dislike is people putting words in my mouth and not showing me the word "Hate" I used when talking about Didi. I explained lots of times why he should go and why I wanted him sat mostly during the play offs. How did that morph into I hate Didi?


What I strongly dislike is his declining skills and having three guys in the infield that are better than he is having to be shuffled around so he can play. He is not Jeter, he is not A rod, he is not a super star SS and never was. Why are 2 young studs and our best all around player having to sit at times, and possibly 2 guys that can hit bombs if they continue to be healthy, being sat on the bench in a rotation, so Didi can play an average SS and hit .220 to .230 ??????


Answer that logically and I will stop talking about it until it is obvious Didi has not been signed, or he is, and still a Yankee. If he is still a Yankee then his playing will speak for itself I won't need to repeat why I didn't want him resigned.




Didi had one off season ... his prior seasons were good ... you hate the guy ... just admit it.


Also I think you are giving Voit and Ford too much credit.




Didi's off year was due to coming off TJ surgery. The ragging on him from continues... but he doesn't hate him. *rme

Up next on Jpep's hit list... Sanchez!




It's not next ... he's already ragging on Sanchez.

The Yankee plan last season was to have LeMaheiu rotating around the infield. Why not try that this season? For example:


Tuesday - 1B LeMaheiu, 2B Torres, SS Gregorius, 3B Urshela


Wednesday - 1B Andujar, 2B LeMaheiu, SS Torres, 3B Urshela


Thursday - 1B Andujar, 2B Torres, SS Gregorius, 3B LeMaheiu


Friday - 1B Andujar, 2B LeMaheiu, SS Gregorius, 3B Urshela


Saturday - 1B Andujar, 2B Torres, SS Gregorius, 3B Urshela


Additionally, I feel strongly that if healthy Andujar will hit, but I am not yet sold that Urshela is for real at the plate. If either of them cannot perform this season, you put LeMaheiu in their spot and make one of them a bench player.



Let the excoriation begin!






You want to shuffle guys around even more than they did last year? Why?  Geeze why am I the only one that sees all these moves made necessary to keep a light hitting decent fielder just because he is left handed  bat and has a great personality. If lefty bats are so special in Yankee stadium why has Cashman put together this team with so few of them?  My God people weren't this upset when Jeter retired. Didi is an average player and fans want to scramble egg the infield every game to keep him like he was superman. SMH at that! Seriously.




seems to me the majority of fans here are fine with letting Didi walk. Also seems to me that you continue to mix the fact that most fans were also opposed to benching him during the playoffs when you kept arguing he should be benched. Big difference between messing with your lineup (with a 4 year regular) going into a playoff and whether to bring him back for the following season. 




New I am sorry I disagree with you on Didi. I don't want to argue about this anymore. Without me writing another declaration of reason's for not keeping Didi, re read what secret agent wrote and the numbers secret agent found. Didi is not a super star and nowhere near as good as Torres' stick, to make his miniscule defense at SS over Torres , the reason to keep him


 I will remind you, scrambling to find a way to play Urschela, Torres and DJ, and our 2 home run hitting 1st basemen every day makes no sense when they need rest for those guys we carry Wade. Having to  leave one of the infielders out of the lineup every day so Didi can play.. well to me is nuts.


The way you see it, is to re sign him, and is your right, and so is it mine to not want to mess with the lineup and defense daily especially in the infield of all places!  Watching DJ be so awkward at first base at times, and make three errors and a few mistakes he got away with, and Torres flub more than he should have at 2nd, and the big one Didi made against the Astro's when he ran into Torres at second or vice versa, and flubbed a DP which led to a run again to me is not necessary just to keep a popular player. Sorry, just how I feel about it.




Does anyone else have a sneaking suspicion that secretagent and CHL aka Jpep are one in the same?

I've been thinking that ever since secretagent showed up ... they sound a lot alike and agree to the umpteenth degree.

it's called the snapshot syndrome. they take their little snapshot and that's it. they don't really understand or ignore the big picture.


didi stepped into a nearly impossible situation replacing one of the most iconic yankees of all-time. and guess what, he did a great job. over the last couple seasons, though not an all star, was ranked amongst the top shortstops in the game. you'd take .277 BA 26 HR 86 RBI .812 OPS from your SS any day. as for the decline, making that judgement on a player playing half a season after coming back from major surgery again shows a lack of understanding. 


having said that, i can see moving on from didi and freeing up money to go after the big prize (cole). other than DJ (who they should extend immediately), all the other players (urshela, torres, voit, ford, andujar) are under team control for the next 4 years or so. but this unrelenting throwing didi under the bus is absurd.

I'm not convinced Voit and Urshela are even starters for the long haul. Urshela looks like the better bet though.

Man I just can't stop laughing at some of the nonsense that people on here dream up. I have been in a room full of pot smoking Hippies  that don't have 1% of the paranoia some of you have about some posters on here. OMG, no way there is more than one person who has my POV on some subjects. Now we are all one person. All who agree with him, it is him, in disguise. They are all...HIM!!!!!!  Jesus. Who knew? Surprised


Look, we are all the same! LaughingLaughingLaughingLaughingLaughingLaughingLaughing… pssst, I just sent you a secret message..ok thanks, you know, I thought so too!! He should be put on double secret probation he doesn't think Didi is good for the team at this point. He talks about it all the time. Next he may want Sanchez gone also, what do we do?


What if someone else agrees with him. And then others. It will be horrible. It will be like...a, gulp, democracy, freedom, where others don't have to be like us and agree with us, ohh...the humanity.


Gimme a break. How about you all take a friggen reality check. Good grief. Who are you people? Too funny.

you miss 100% of the shots you don't take.
