Well, we knew this one was coming. The New York Yankees have released third baseman Josh Donaldson after two very disappointing years. The former All-Star third baseman was acquired from the Minnesota Twins in a trade in which the Yankees sent Gio Urshela and catcher Gary Sanchez in return for Josh Donaldson, Isiah Kiner-Falefa, and catcher Ben Rortvedt. Hands down, it would become one of the worst trades the New York Yankees ever engaged in. At the time it didn’t seem so bad.

The New York Yankees were fed up with catcher Gary Sanchez. The man had shown so much promise but it all seemed to be going unfulfilled. Most Yankee fans were very upset to see Gio Urshela go. Fans loved Gio because of his Hustle. If there’s one thing that New York fans love is a player that hustles and works hard. At times, the addition of Isiah Kiner-Falefa worked out well for the Yankees because of his ability to play all positions. However last year, Isiah Kiner-Falefa made so many errors, he had many Yankee fans screaming for the team to get rid of him. However, nothing came close to Yankee fan’s desire to get rid of Josh Donaldson.

On paper, the trade for Josh Donaldson seemed like a no-brainer. The Yankees were acquiring an All-Star player. Josh Donaldson was the 2015 AL MVP when he played for the Toronto Blue Jays. However like so many other players the New York Yankees acquired after were all-stars, their time in New York just became a huge disappointment.

Josh Donaldson had a reputation for being a difficult presence in the clubhouse. However with the New York Yankees that seemed to never be an issue. Possibly because of players like Aaron Judge whose presence in the clubhouse was just as large as it was on the field that wouldn’t let something like that happen.

The 2022 New York Yankees season has been one of the worst seasons they’ve had in the past 40 years. It almost feels like the early 70s again. It’s easy to see that the New York Yankees are going to clean house and the release of John Donaldson seems like just the beginning of sweeping changes that will hit this legendary New York Yankees baseball team.
