Man Pirela has such a powerful swing.

He's like the anti-Cano.

Gregorius is the SS, Drew is fighting for 2B

Yup.

I hope Pirela or Ref win the job from the beginning. Drew is done.


I think if our pitching stay healthy, we'll make the playoffs. I cant see the hitting being worse.

More likely to bench Didi imo. Drew is actually a good player or at least used to be.

Drew sucks. They didn't give up Shane Greene to let Didi ride the bench. He's going to be our SS.

Drew had a bad year, he's been a consistent above average starter most of his career though. Didi's done nothing.

If we are just looking to play young guys then sure. But Drew is a better player than Did at this point most likely.

I mean, I doubt it. But Didi is 25. Not playing him means he's never going to get a chance to prove himself. The Yankees have pretty clearly stated that Didi is the starting SS. And he should be.

Mission, have you paid any attention to the off-season... Didi at short and Drew/ Refsnyder/Pirela at second is pretty much a done deal...

Meh I don't read the NY sports pages, don't listen to NY talk radio, and don't read blogs... so no. Don't have time for that crap.

But everything is up in the air. Whoever the best two players are that emerge this spring, I expect them to start. Wouldn't say anything is set in stone. Girardi can say whatever he wants right now but he's going to do what's best for the team.

I would say nothing is up in the air since Drew plays 2B when Gregorius plays at the same time. The team is committed to Didi at SS.

Except Didi is 25, he's done absolutely nothing at any level to justify the hype, wasn't a huge prospect to begin with... the guy is a fringe major leaguer. If he struggles this spring/going into next season and Pirela or Refsnyder rakes then I fully expect one of the youngsters to come up and take the 2B job and Drew to move over and replace Didi.

It wont matter if Didi plays SS when he's on the field with Drew. If he struggles more than 2 out of 3 of Drew/Pirela/Refsnyder he's getting benched. We have a division to win.

Considering Ref's defensive issues have been evident in ST, I don't think he has a shot at the job.

Didi should be fine. As of now, he is the SS.

I just think people are waaayyy too high on Didi. He's basically a solid prospect who has failed to hit or field at a high level as he's moved up the minor leagues. He's youngish and toolsy. Same thing we were saying about Nunez for like three years. Guys like him are a dime a dozen and teams are never 'committed' to that kind of player if it costs them games. If Didi takes that next step, he's going to play. If he doesn't, he will be benched very quickly.

We traded Shane Greene for him. So what? Its not like Shane was that great. He was a little above average. He'd made 14 starts like a mid-rotation starter. He was never a big prospect and didn't have killer stuff and he'd end up buried in a sea of arms here. So we traded him for a guy who could potentially contribute at a position of need. But that doesn't mean we see Didi as a core player going forward. He's far from that kind of guy at this point.

Yankees fans are turning into old geezers who get hard at the sight of anything under 30. Didi has proven nothing and quite frankly is a horrible player right now.
