Custom Card of the Day: Donaldson Edition
The A's are currently tied for the third-best record in baseball. And yet not a single analyst, commentator, sportswriter or whatever Joe Buck is has even mentioned it.
This isn't just a theme this year, it's a theme last year, or any year the A's have done well. The A's are one of those 'fly under the radar' teams, that don't make a lot of news, don't have a lot of big players, and are just good. Like, without any big stars or anything.
Josh Donaldson is one of the nobodies on the A's, and he couldn't be less of a nobody.
He's a consistent third baseman, who's a solid hitter, plays his position well, and brings spark to the lineup. He's one of the pieces that's helping the A's right now, and this is definitely his breakout season.
How long the A's hang on is beyond me. It'd just be nice if they won it and the Rangers didn't.
Coming Tomorrow- the first in a series of preplanned customs, as I'll be on vacation for the next week or so. For that reason, the Football Rip might go on hold for a few days. But tomorrow's custom will be a perennial star for a squandering team.
