I love watching them all but who else could your eyes be on but Josh Donaldson. He made a mockery of Yankee pitching and now he is at home against the team that traded him away. Could he be in the midst of one of the best seasons by a Blue Jays 3rd Baseman ever? Could He is. His last 7 games alone feed you this bunch o’ numbers: slash line of .385/.484/.554 with 5 HR and 8 RBI. Those chants of MVP seem to be getting louder by the second. Apologies to Mr. Gruber and Mr. Sprague…we still love ye.


Because of the serious love we have for Brett Lawrie in these parts, I will go out on a limb and say the Blue Jays do not sweep the A’s but rather take two of three. He has to have a game for the ages back on Canadian soil doesn’t he? He doesn’t? Well if the Lawrie don’t getcha the Gray will. 2 of 3, kids, 2 of 3.
