    I hated the first exposure of Didi Gregorius when he first played for the Yankees.....

    Boy! Was I wrong!!!!

    "Newsday | Roger Rubin: The modesty of Sir Didi Gregorius is just one of the many things that makes him so lovable. The nine dingers he’s hit in the month of April are another. As are the singles, the double, the walks, the league leading RBI total, and the dingers. Even after cutting through The Mist with his ninth home run, Sir Didi still insists that he’s not a home run hitter. Maybe he’s just hoping Kramer doesn’t promise a kid that Sir Didi will hit two home runs for him. At this point, I wouldn’t put it past Sir Didi to accomplish such a feat."

    The Tigers were after him over the winter....offered our young stud RHer Michael Fulmer for Didi and a top-prospect pitcher...Yanks wouldn't bite.

    p.s. I've HATED the Yanks since 1961. [​IMG]

    When the Yanks and Tigers went at it late last year, Sanchez (who'd stayed out of the melee) then raced in and punched Miguel Cabrera in the side of the head TWICE while he was being held down on the ground.....Sanchez is a world-class chickenshit. When they play each other again we'll see what happens if Sanchez gets on base and has to be within arm's reach of Cabrera at 1B. p.s. I have no problem with Yankee FANS but I hate that team.

    I kinda look forward to your prediction....a hockey game breaking out! Yazzzzzah!!!!

    ....but there's no disputing his offensive ability.
