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.




Kind of the feeling I get too Mo ?? Don't know why but I guess everyone to their own ??

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.

Yes to each his own ... the only thing that annoys me is he was saying Didi was his favorite Yankee for a long time.

 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 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.

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.

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.

Lets just see what trasnspires and what happens with him. I agree about A rod though. The guy was a beast and at times I was on him also. People expected a lot of him and when he didn't give it he got bashed. Can't take away the guy worked hard, always hustled and always wanted to win. I will add that if two people ever belonged together and are two of a kind, it's him and Jlo. Man that is a match.

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!
