It was a pretty good night for Nick Pivetta. Despite giving up back-to-back homers to open last night’s game against the Dodgers, the pitcher with an ERA approaching 7 didn’t allow any more runs and ended up getting the win against Clayton Kershaw, thanks to an Aaron Altherr hit a grand slam in the bottom of the sixth.
Tonight’s Blue Jays-Red Sox game started with a frightening first inning for home-plate umpire Chris Segal, who was hit in the head by Josh Donaldson’s bat when the third baseman lost his grip.
The Blue Jays are headed back to the ALCS for the second straight year after completing a sweep of the Rangers with a 7-6 win on Sunday night. It was their first postseason sweep in franchise history.
Reigning American League MVP Josh Donaldson was pulled from today’s Toronto Blue Jays–New York Yankees game with a jammed right thumb, but not before he threw a shitfit in the dugout and had to be held back by Troy Tulowitzki while arguing with Blue Jays manager John Gibbons.
Donaldson went 1-for-4 with two…
Oh, you thought Troy Tulowitzki’s ragged-ass glove would be the only piece of equipment from the left-side of the Blue Jays’ infield to make news this season? Wrong.
Josh Donaldson’s solo home run gave the Blue Jays a walkoff win over the Rays Sunday, and that’s lovely, but let’s talk about Ben Revere’s water-dumping skills. The outfielder was so excited about the opportunity to dump the jug on his teammates that he totally fucked it up.
Josh Donaldson probably shouldn’t have tried tagging up here. This ball was hit to extremely shallow center field, and a good throw (or a momentum-aided one from one of the outfielders) probably nails him. But he decided to run, and instead we get to see one of the better tag-avoiding slides you’ll ever see.
So, here we go. The postseason series we’d get if there’s any justice in this world. Royals and Blue Jays, two newly resurgent franchises with big designs on October, and a sharp and abiding acrimony for each other that wasn’t satisfied by yesterday’s bench-clearing or name-calling.
Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson just made a play that will very likely go down as the best of the year.
Josh Donaldson showed the Angels no Canadian hospitality today as it appears he shouted “Fuck you! Suck my cock!” at the L.A. dugout during today’s game at Rogers Centre.
Now that Josh Donaldson has left the Athletics, we can go to the next step: juicy stories about internal discord leaking to the media. This particular story describes a big argument between Donaldson and general manager Billy Beane.
The Orioles and Athletics have suddenly become a very exciting, potential postseason matchup. It first started getting some juice thanks to a weird feud between two guys who featured prominently in this game: Josh Donaldson and Manny Machado. In a June series in Baltimore, Machado got upset at what he felt was an …
That is a headline you just read. Sometimes baseball is just the worst.
If I asked you to name the player who has accumulated the second-most WAR over the last calendar year, you'd probably flip a coin in your head to decide between Mike Trout and Miguel Cabrera. Or maybe you'd get a little creative, and name Yasiel Puig or Andrew McCutchen. One guy who probably wouldn't immediately pop…
The Rangers' David Murphy wedged this foul pop down the third-base line between the tarp and the padded sidewall. Or right to where the A's Josh Donaldson could get to it.
