Everything – the man can do everything. Just when you think you’ve seen everything that Josh Donaldson is capable of, he does something new and completey unexpected.
Like how about scoring from third on a sac fly that’s hit to shallow centre field … like really shallow centre field? Typically, this is a huge no-no, but Donaldson clearly felt confident enough to tag up and slide on the play.
His instincts were absolutely correct as he just narrowly avoided being tagged at home plate. Check out the GIFS after the jump of the multiple angles.
This was just another quintessential hustle play by Josh Donaldson. I mean, can we just award him the AL MVP award right now? Or at the very least, let him hang onto it for safekeeping until season’s end?
