I like Donaldson the player but he does come off as a guy who probably says "Brah" a lot.

Playing third base kind of gets to you after awhile.

Maybe - he seems more like the kind of guy who'd be wrangling gators if he wasn't playing ball...

I see Lawrie more as the 'brah' type

I've always thought of Lawrie as more of a "Bro" kind of guy. The difference is subtle but serious.

He's actually quite well spoken, at least on matters of kinesthetic mechanics. He rebuilt his swing pretty late (based on Bautista's) and that put him on the board.

It's more of a softball swing than a traditional baseball quick hands swing.

I know this is not popular around her but I find Donaldson kind of a meat head.. albeit a talented one

I see him as more hot headed than meat headed, but I totally get where you're coming from. There is still a tremendous intelligence behind his talent: how he re-tooled his swing despite decades of coaching otherwise, his routes and footwork to balls chopped his way all indicate a very sharp, analytic mind behind the gusto.

I was unaware there was a difference. Tmlfans.ca,  a treasure trove of information.

Gradually renewing my Stroman hype, to match my Sanchez/Estrada/Happ hype.

More ground balls in front of Donaldson, Tulowitski, and Travis is a good thing.

Ugly lineup today:

1 Travis
2 Saunders
3 Edwin
4 Martin
5 Upton
6 Carrera
7 Smoak
8 Barney
9 Goins

No Bautista, Pilar, Donaldson, or Tulo

Jays just traded for Dioner Navarro! Welcome back!
Indicates Thole and Dickey not likely to be part of the post-season roster.
White Sox get minor league LHP Colton Turner in return.
