MLB is reviewing Josh Donaldson’s lewd gestures/comments to the Angels bench

53 Comments

As I mentioned in yesterday’s recaps, Blue Jays’ third baseman Josh Donaldson was somewhat animated in his interaction with the Angels’ dugout during Monday afternoon’s game. Specifically, there were some gesticulations and words with which Donaldson suggested that the Angels do things to certain parts of his anatomy which they were not likely inclined to do.

I’m guessing he’ll get a token “won’t someone think of the children?!” fine given that his anatomical suggestion to the Angels’ dugout was likely loud enough to be heard by fans and MLB is rather taken with the family experience these days. I mean, back in the 70s they were probably more worried about the fans being bad influences on the players — really, crowds in the 70s were drunken, loutish train wrecks — but it’s 2015 now and we expect some damn decorum around here.
