The Bringer of Rain is back in Toronto, but wearing the wrong uniform.
Everything is about him today, they are going to have a video tribute before the game.
Josh had some stuff to say:
JD has played 129 games already after just 52 last year. Changed diet this year. Credits Poulis & Frostad. Also said #BlueJays' HP dept. didn't work for him.— Ben Nicholson-Smith (@bnicholsonsmith) August 27, 2019
"It might work for some guys & I hope that it does. It didn’t work for me. Sometimes you have to learn from mistakes."
It seems like a little bit of revisionism. As I remember, he decided to go it his own way and not use the Jays staff to recover from injury. Blaming them after seems a little disingenuous.
Donaldson says Toronto is one of the best places to play baseball. On the other hand “I have no opinion on (the Jays) front office. It’s a business. It’s their team.”— Rob Longley (@longleysunsport) August 27, 2019
“At the end it hurt,” - Josh Donaldson on his departure from Toronto.— Rob Longley (@longleysunsport) August 27, 2019

We have Font playing opener again and Calgarian Mike Siroka pitching for the Braves. I dont want to cheer against him but I’ll find a way.
