Didi Gregorius bid farewell to double-play partner Starlin Castro in a touching Instagram post
Giancarlo Stanton heading to New York to form some kind of dinger Voltron with Aaron Judge got most of the headlines, and understandably so.

Starlin even replied back, proving that the two had indeed become best friends:
Castro also sent a larger goodbye to Yankees fans, who will no doubt remember his two years in the Bronx -- and all the attendant shenanigans -- fondly:
I want to thank @yankees, my teammates and the fans for embracing me and my family during our time in NY. I enjoyed every moment playing in front of some of the greatest fans in the world! #1eroDios 🙏🙏🙏 Gracias a todos!!!
