Didi Gregorius is a better shortstop and artist than you

Christian Petersen

No, not like, artist in the field, one with pencils and creativity and all that. But also yes.

The Diamondbacks traded for Didi Gregorius last offseason, at least in part because they felt he could be their shortstop of the future. General manager Kevin Towers even likened him to Derek Jeter, which is no small praise for any player, never mind one with all of eight games experience in the majors to that point.

Regardless of your feelings on that comp, it's likely safe to say that Derek Jeter can't do this:

"Oh, no big deal, I was just bored on a Monday, checking out Google, decided to draw a super-detailed Bane vs. Batman moment." Thanks for making us all feel inadequate, Didi. And where were you when Bill Hanstock wanted us all to draw the Diamondbacks' logo from memory? (Artist's conception of Didi's hypothetical entry.)

Let's agree to keep an eye on Gregorius' Twitter feed and come up with stuff we want to see him draw the next time he's sitting around with six hours to kill and a creative itch to scratch. Nothing with Sonic the Hedgehog in it, though. No one deserves to go down that disturbing fan art rabbit hole.
