News broke last evening that Didi Gregorius is moving to the National League, and I couldn’t be happier.

I thought that this was significant enough to write about. If you don’t hate Didi Gregorius, you haven’t been paying attention to the Twins. Didi and the Phillies will not face the Twins during the regular season.
Basically, he has haunted the Twins in the playoffs for a while now. In 2017, we held a 3-0 lead in the Wild Card game, and Didi hit a three-run shot to tie it up and steal all of our momentum. This year, he hit a grand slam in Game 2, which eliminated any chance we had to win that game. Not to mention that he hit .800/.818/1.600 against the Twins this season, with ten RBIs.
The only way Didi and the Phils will play the Twins is if the two face off in the World Series, which is very unlikely to happen. But, to make that happen, we had a great season and made the World Series. If the same thing happens to the Phillies, then... yeah.
The bad news is that Gregorius signed only a 1-year deal, so he will be a free agent after the 2020 season. Then, he will be up for grabs again.
Tell me how you feel about this move in the comments. (Haha)
