I remember the trade deadline this past July when I reported that I could confirm that Josh Donaldson had been traded to the Athletics, along with Sean Gallagher, Matt Murton and Eric Patterson for Rich Harden and Chad Gaudin. It was clearly an in-joke for my Cubs fan readers. Boy, did I hear it from Indians fans who screamed at me for spreading false rumors. Shouldn’t the fact that every other player I mentioned in that deal has been out of baseball for years clue you in to the fact that I was talking about a deal in 2008? On the other hand, these were Indians fans whose views of Chief Wahoo are still rooted in 1947.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster.
