Josh Donaldson Bobblehead Day
Yesterday slugger Josh Donaldson capped off his bobblehead day in dramatic fashion with a go-ahead homer in the bottom of the 8th inning that propelled the Blue Jays to a 3-2 victory over the New York Yankees.
Afterward, the former MVP appeared impressed with the true likeness of the bobblehead to himself but then dropped that “it’s kinda hard to polish a turd.”

Dalton Pompey Injures Leg In Rehab Game
Dalton Pompey is quickly becoming the unluckiest player in the league after the outfielder injured his leg in his first rehab game with the Buffalo Bisons yesterday.
Pompey played 3 innings but appeared to injure his leg making a shoestring catch in the first inning. The speedster managed to single and strikeout at the plate before being lifted after the third inning.
Bisons manager Bobby Meacham commented on the injury:
"“We had to take him out. I’m not sure exactly but he felt something with his leg, after making the catch in center, Meacham said he saw Pompey “flexing his knee the next inning. I said something’s wrong. We just took him out to make sure. I don’t know exactly what it is but it was like ‘get him out of there.'”"
