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.







Follow that approach and the Yanks will open the season with neither Didi OR Cole.




Might happen but I would still like them to apply the Didi money to upgrade the staff. I've always said you deal from strength and with the ability to move Torres over to short is a strength they can deal from by allowing Didi to walk and re allocating the money. I hope they sign Wheeler because I don't think they will sign Cole. Hope I'm wrong about that




that's what i was saying. would love it to be cole. if not, prefer madbum, but whoever it is, that's where the money (if there is any) needs to be spent.

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.




We've had people do these things on this board many times ... so it's just normal for us to be suspicious when a "SecretAgent" pops up and agrees with you on everything.




Mo c'mon. I  barely knew how to register myself for this board and find my way back here, let alone do it as many times as I am accused of. Is it that hard to believe some posters agree with my POV on some topics? I was happy to see that guy or woman show up to know I do have a like minded poster around at times. I have no idea where he came from never saw him before.


And Newinn, I was just playin around with a few posters that were being paranoid about me again, saying that I am more than one poster, I am now using 3 or 4 different aliases according to these poor misguided individuals. SO I was sort of hamming it up acting out their parts as a satire. Just trying to be funny. haha, ya know funny. It is getting boring around here sometimes.




The writing is quite similar ... that was indeed why it was questioned ... not just because he agreed with you ... and you and jpep could be twins ... so we are not out of our minds in thinking you returned with a new name.




I'm not buying the denial... it's to be expected. Jpep thinks he's smarter than everyone on the board... once again Jpep... you're not fooling anyone. Mo and I are not the only ones who see you....you are a whacko....imo. A redundant whacko.

Mo I am surprised at you but you do what you feel you have to, to be accepted by that delusional potty mouth. You and I have no problems with each other until she shows up then you flip a switch and act like a different person. That I get also and why. You need her for some unknown reason. The real tragedy here is you think that woman is your friend but she will turn on you in a NY minute the second she thinks it will help her status on this Yankee board which to me is utterly ridiculous. When she gets on here lately it is more like a soap opera.  It also is most likely the only thing in her life that makes her feel needed and important. So be it.


It is so nice on here for the most part, with some really good conversations and opinions and fun. That is  until she shows up with her toxic, poisonous degrading ways. Some of us on here know she is a delusional low self esteem crackpot with a dirty mouth who is a hypocrite. She makes believe she is only here to cheer for her team.. In reality She is a walking talking soap opera mostly here to get attention by starting trouble seems to me. That's what she does more than half the time she is on here. Others see it also, not just me. They just don't say anything.


 I still  respect you and your opinions and like messing with you at times over different subjects on the Yankees because you act like an adult about it in a classy way.  You also have some good posts and Yankee or player information to discuss. I also like the way you stand up for yourself for what you believe. I just don't understand a woman like you being friends with a person who constantly tells lies about others, and causes trouble with a lot of posters and needs so much attention and drama to feel important. Her paranoia is getting worse.  She is nothing like you from what I can tell. I am sure you have your reasons.  

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

She didn't start this ... someone else bothered her about what they thought was going on ... and then she started in ... but it was by someone else bringing it up ... so I don't think you should be attacking Lola on this situation.


I also don't think you have a right to attack Lola at all ... I think what you wrote was horrendous and a horrible lie.


I don't need anyone on these boards ... I've taken care of myself on these boards for 20 years ... so don't go there.

CHL is in love with Voit and Ford.



And the sound of his own voice...




it's better than listening to a barking dog that knows how to type.



I gotta get one of those bark collars... I have pet stop, but that just keeps them away from the road.  My avatar likes to ease her way to the line, so she gets zapped. Her sister barks at her like a nagging pita!!! Funny!


I was only busting your balls for the long posts... See, we need more humor around here.

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.



I've been watching Didi since he got here. I was an early supporter and stuck by him even through his uggllly first couple months. He made Jeter look like a statue at short. Not bad for replacing a legend! He has been a steady defensive presence since he got here. He is a potential 30 HR guy. His hitting needs work, but I think he came back too early.  But we can see about that after 2020.

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.




The Yankees are at their best when they have lefty power and lefty pitching. Cashman put the team together with so few of them because he made the best of what was available. Didi is a light hitting decent fielder? When he's healthy many of Didi's outs are line drives. Your post is an exaggeration to say the least. Who are these people that are so upset? Also, Didi isn't Superman but he isn't a light hitting, decent fielding, average player either. He's a solid all around player with occasional power.



Didi has been kind of streaky, but his defense is very good. He should stay, but thats my opinion.

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.



I don't think Didi is declining. I believe he came back too soon, he will return to 2018 form. If the FO thought there were better players, they would have played them. You cite what you believe to be his deficiencies, but you need to take into account he wasn't quite ready to return, and the shuffling actually served to keep guys fresher.  Thairo would be a capable replacement, but he's another RH hitter. Didi's lefty bat is important.
