The Red Sox have added another quality bat to the heart of the order.

On Sunday, the team came to an agreement to bring former Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story to Boston. Story has reportedly signed a deal worth $140 million over the next six seasons. The Red Sox add a player that’s recorded two 30-homer, 20-steal campaigns.

The seventh-year player hit 24 long balls last year, giving him five seasons with at least 20 home runs. Story is a two-time All-Star who boasts a pair of Silver Slugger awards. The righty should fare well in Fenway Park.

The move shores up the middle of the Red Sox infield, as Story is likely to slide over to second base to team up with shortstop Xander Bogaerts.

While Boston undoubtedly got better, they also kept Story away from one division rival.

The Yankees seemed to be the favorite to land the infielder before the Red Sox swooped in at the last possible minute. With Story off the market, New York signed Marwin Gonzalez.

New York fans weren’t too happy to see Story spurn their offer for a deal with their archrival.

Social Media React To Yankees Missing On Trevor Story

This news shocked many Yankees fans, as they were believed to be the eventual landing spot for Trevor Story. Instead, they’ll have to face him as a division rival in Boston.

Social media was quick to react to New York’s missing out on their shortstop of choice.

Even Aaron Judge was upset that the Yankees weren’t able to close the deal.

It should be fun watching Story in Boston. At least for everyone but Yankees fans.
