Does having demonstrative players matter?

  Yesterday, Glen Perkins struck out the A’s Josh Donaldson, and started yelling some stuff. Who knows what was yelled, but it irked Donaldson, and he started to saunter over to Perkins. The Twins rushed to come between Donaldson and Perkins, the A’s spilled out of their dugout, there was posturing and warnings were given out. Ultimately, this will be a story that is forgotten...

Twins show fight during mild, late-game altercation

But by the Twins' standards, the scuffle along the first base line during Minnesota's 7-4 loss was a bit out of character. It all started when Twins closer Glen Perkins struck out Oakland third baseman Josh Donaldson for the final out of the 10th inning...

A's renew Josh Donaldson at MLB minimum salary for 2014

The Athletics have renewed the contract of third baseman Josh Donaldson for 2014 at a league-minimum salary of $500,000,'s Jon Heyman reports.

Oakland A’s: Is Nelson Cruz worth it?

Nelson Cruz Rumors have been swirling around that the Oakland Athletics are the dark horse in the race to acquire outfielder Nelson Cruz. By not picking up Chris Young’s option, the Athletics are in need of a right-handed-hitter and Cruz seems to fit the bill perfectly. However, his valuability is much higher now than it was when he was in the Athletics dugout in the early 2000s...

Josh Donaldson dives over tarp during catch

Josh Donaldson on Tuesday forced himself into the play of the year discussion. And he did it while being swallowed whole by the tarp down the third base line. The dive. The catch. The glove raised in the air. All outstanding. Most important, it all makes having to get a tetanus shot worth it. Because who knows what types of disgusting things were awaiting him down there. Thanks...

Josh Donaldson Bringing The Swing Back To The Swinging A`s

There is a third baseman in the American league right now that is playing superb baseball. His glove is gold material, his bat is hot, and he plays the game like he is still in the sandlot. No, I am not talking about Miguel Cabrera, I’m talking about the Athletics sophomore Josh Donaldson. It`s unfortunate that this young man won`t be going to the all-star game this year. It is...

A's player makes improbable HR into net

Josh Donaldson has been the A’s best offensive player this season and putting up all-star-caliber numbers. But in batting practice on Friday, he accomplished what could quite possibly end up his greatest triumph of the season. Donaldson was talking his pre-game cuts in the cage just like any other day.
