MLB Insider Offers Insane Didi Gregorius Hot Take

via YES
Forget Aaron Judge. Forget Giancarlo Stanton. It’s Didi Gregorius who is the toast of New York at the moment with his blistering start to the season. The Gregorius One is up to nine home runs on the season and is slashing a ridiculous .372/.465/.833 through 23 games, stats that have Yankees fans anointing him the best shortstop in all of baseball. It’s an extreme position to take given Carlos Correa, Manny Machado, and Andrelton Simmons exist, but he does lead all shortstops in WAR so it isn’t that wild at the moment.
What is, however, is the USA Today’s Bob Nightengale likening the acquisition of Gregorius from the Diamondbacks to Babe Ruth. Seriously.


If Skip Bayless ever talked or tweeted about baseball, I’d imagine this is something he’d send out. The Babe was acquired for freakin’ cash considerations from the Red Sox and put up like nine 10-win seasons with the Yankees. As for the Diamondbacks, they ended up with a front-of-the-rotation strikeout artist in Robbie Ray… I’d say they aren’t crying over this.

Move over Babe Ruth!
