Aaron Boone on Didi Gregorius "Wherever he ends up, teams are lucky to have him because he's a really good player." Boone praised how Didi handled stepping into Jeter's shoes: "To be able to, in a market like New York, where you're replacing a guy like Derek Jeter, to not have that define him or even to some degree affect his play over the long haul. To be able to become the player that he did in New York, I think speaks to the kind of character and who he is as a competitor, as a person."

Didi Gregorius leaves the Bronx and will reunite with his former manager Joe Girardi in Philly on a 1-year deal. Sir Didi had been a popular Yankee — known among fans for his emoji-saturated postgame recaps on Twitter — despite having the impossible task of replacing franchise icon Derek Jeter at shortstop. But with a crowded infield — and money earmarked for, ahem, a starting pitching upgrade — the Yanks didn't make Gregorius a qualifying offer.

New Phillies skipper Joe Girardi managed the Yankees in 2017, when the Bombers lost to the Astros in the ALCS. What did he think when he heard Houston is being investigated for illegally stealing signs that season? "I wasn't shocked," Girardi said. "We had put in a lot of things to try to combat certain things. You know, word gets around." Still, he added: "I thought we did a pretty good job of combating it. I don't know how great of a job we did, but I thought we did a pretty great job."
