No Josh Donaldson Thread?

I am disappointed in you, Cafe.

Am I the only one who believes in this guy? Always flashed good discipline in the minors, but never really made great contact. Finally making the adjustments necessary to put it all together.

Josh Donaldson – I feel like Donaldson won’t even be ownable in some leagues in the 2nd half of the year, so if you can get a piece for him now, I’d listen to offers. It seems like you found a corner infidel that you’re gonna love long time, but at the end of the year when he has 17 homers, 5 steals and a .265 average, you’re gonna yawn. Here’s an example: I’d take Todd Frazier for Donaldson.

He's made some mechanical changes to help him get where he's at.

.1000 OPS in AAA last year, .844 OPS last year in the bigs after the ASB, and a .936 OPS this season. Selective sampling, but I'm buying.

I picked him up and am keeping him with no plans to trade him. I'm a believer in him. Used this reference to help solidify my feelings on him.
