Josh Donaldson: Punk with a Whistle

Alright, I don’t even know where to begin with this. Let’s start here: Josh Donaldson is a punk.

During Monday’s game against the Blue Jays, White Sox pitcher Reynaldo Lopez let up a solo shot in the sixth inning to Blue Jays DH, Josh Donaldson. The White Sox have struggled recently against Donaldson, allowing him to homer in each of the last four meetings with the Jays. This home run was different, though.

Upon rounding the bases after going deep, Donaldson used his hand and his mouth to whistle at the White Sox dugout. The act was perceived as a taunt of sorts, leaving many White Sox fans, including myself, pretty pissed off.

The act wasn’t spontaneous, according to Donaldson. In a post game interview he said, “They have a particular coach over there who likes to blow an actual whistle when their team makes a good play.” He later claimed, “I thought it would be appropriate if I blew it back at them when they didn’t make a play.”

The coach in question is first-base coach Daryl Boston. Boston blows a whistle whenever the team makes a good play, a tradition that boosts morale and rewards positive action. I see nothing wrong with that. However, Donaldson doesn’t like the act, and he thinks that it warrants a taunt with a cocky skip as he faces the Chicago dugout.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?! Worry about your own team, your own performance, and stop thinking that you are somehow morally superior to a team thats just trying to make things work in the middle of a rebuild. This just shows that the former AL MVP is a punk who is willing to stoop down to any level to give himself personal satisfaction. This to me is a trash move by a punk player.

This whole fiasco is going to leave a bad taste in my mouth, and while I know the White Sox have too much professionalism and class to respond to this childish behavior, a part of me hopes that they will put him in his place.

  3. To quote your own words: “I see nothing wrong with that.”

    If Boston didn’t want Donaldson mocking his whistle blowing, probably shouldn’t blow it right before a former AL MVP and 40 bomb hitter faces a AAAA reliever.

  4. I don’t blame Donaldson one iota – hearing that while running out routine grounders, as was the case last night, is 100% going to fire Donny up.

  5. Well then maybe Daryl Boston shouldn’t blow that stupid whistle during Donaldson’s at bat? I know it must be frustrating watching / writing for a AAA team, but salty much?

  7. Your argument (and thus your anger) is built on a false premise. If we blow a whistle for good plays, why can’t they? Did you see Boston laughing after the fact? It was all in good fun, punk 😉

  11. This is a dumb article… He’s saying JD should worry about his own problems? Look who’s the one hiding in his mom’s basement writing something that doesn’t even warrant an article… focus on your own problems.

  13. Wow. Just wow. Those with a basic level of maturity laughed about this obvious joke, on both sides of the field. Reporters with actual credibility published lighthearted quotes from Daryl Boston and Josh Donaldson about how good-natured this situation was.

    So I have to ask, where is your maturity?

  14. This ridiculously bad take is going to follow you wherever you go. Nothing disappears from the internet. I really hope you don’t want to be a sportswriter because garbage like this looks really, really bad on you.
