Aaron Boone Reacts To Josh Donaldson's Controversial Remark

Josh Donaldson referred to Tim Anderson as "Jackie" during Saturday's game between the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox. The Yankees third baseman insisted it was an inside joke based on comments the White Sox shortstop made three years ago that he felt like "today's Jackie Robinson" because "I'm getting to the point where I need to change the game."

MLB fans react to wild Dodgers-Phillies finish

Sometimes, there is nothing routine about a routine play. That was the case for Max Muncy and the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday. The Dodgers led the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 in the bottom of the 10th inning. Philadelphia’s chances appeared slim when Justin Turner deked J. T. Realmuto, turning runners on the corners with no outs situation into a runner on first, one-out situation. But the Phillies clawed back and got runners on second and third with two outs Alec Bohm at the plate. But when Bohm hit a ground ball to second base, the game appeared over. It was — just not in the way we expected.

Aaron Boone: Josh Donaldson shouldn’t have made ‘Jackie’ comment to Tim Anderson

Aaron Boone spoke with Josh Donaldson and other Yankees about Saturday’s incident involving Tim Anderson, and he agrees that Donaldson should not have invoked Jackie Robinson’s name in his exchange with the White Sox shortstop. Chicago manager Tony La Russa charged that Donaldson made a “racist” comment when he said on the field to Anderson, who is Black, “what’s up Jackie,” leading to the benches-clearing incident later in the Yankees’ 7-5 victory. Donaldson contended after the game that he was joking about Anderson referring to himself in a 2019 Sports Illustrated story as “today’s Jackie Robinson.” “I understand that Josh has been...
