Two months ago, Didi Gregorius drew a portrait of Derek Jeter to show his “Re2pect to the Captain.”
That’s wonderful, of course, because Gregorius was acquired by New York Yankees on Friday to patrol shortstop now that Jeter has retired. Maybe Jeter’s shadow will be a little more manageable because Gregorius has actually penciled in shadows on Jeter?
Eh, probably not, but it’s still a great coincidence:
Gregorius has shared his artwork before, like this Batman vs. Bane piece he says took him six hours to draw.
No time for six-hour art sessions now, Didi. Better start working on hitting opposite-field singles. People in the Bronx have high expectations, you know.
