The ScoreJudge criticizes Donaldson's 'Jackie' comment: I don't think it's right thing to do

New York Yankees third baseman Josh Donaldson was given a one-game suspension on Monday for inappropriate comments directed toward Tim Anderson, calling the Chicago White Sox shortstop "Jackie" during their weekend series.Meanwhile, teammate Aaron Judge was critical of Donaldson, but said the incident is now in the past."Joke or not, I don't think it's the right thing to do there," Judge said Monday night following news of Donaldson's suspension, according to Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times."Given the history, especially the series in Chicago and the little bit of beef between Anderson and (Donaldson), Judge said. "Anderson is one of the best shortstops in the game and is a big part of MLB and how we can grow the game. (Donaldson) getting a one-game suspension I don t know. He made a mistake, owned up to it and we ve got to move on."The remark was deemed by the league office to have caused a benches-clearing incident during the same game on Saturday, with White Sox catcher Yasmani Grandal and Donaldson getting into it during the fifth inning.Yankees manager Aaron Boone noted he was opposed to the suspension."I certainly respect (MLB's decision)," Boone added. "I think they were thoughtful and looked into it and did their due diligence on it and made what was a tough call. I don't agree with it. I don't think it warranted a suspension."Anderson said Donaldson's utterance was "disrespectful" and "unnecessary."Donaldson rebutted, stating, "I've said it to him in years past, not in any manner (other) than just joking around (about) the fact that he called himself Jackie Robinson."The former AL MVP and three-time All-Star was acquired by the Yankees this past offseason along with Isiah Kiner-Falefa in a blockbuster deal that sent Gary Sanchez and Gio Urshela to the Minnesota Twins.He's currently appealing the suspension.Copyright © 2022 Score Media Ventures Inc.

The ScoreAnderson, White Sox angered after Yankees' Donaldson called him 'Jackie'

The Chicago White Sox took exception to New York Yankees third baseman Josh Donaldson's comments toward shortstop Tim Anderson in Saturday's game, deeming it to be a racist remark.Anderson said Donaldson referred to him as Jackie Robinson when the two crossed paths near second base in the first inning and again later in the game."He just made a disrespectful comment. Basically, he was trying to call me Jackie Robinson, like, 'What's up, Jackie?'" Anderson said postgame, per White Sox Talk. "I don't play like that. ... I don't think it was called for. It was unnecessary."White Sox manager Tony La Russa called the comment "racist" but wouldn't comment further. Anderson concurred with his skipper's view.Donaldson admitted to calling Anderson the name but said he thought it was an inside joke with his opponent. The 36-year-old cited Anderson's 2019 interview with Sports Illustrated in which Anderson claimed to feel like "today's Jackie Robinson," with regard to having fun and showing emotion during games, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com."(In) 2019, when I played for Atlanta, we actually joked about that (in) the game," Donaldson said, according to SNY. "And I've said it to him in years past, not in any manner (other) than just joking around (about) the fact that he called himself Jackie Robinson."So if something has changed from that, my meaning of that is not any term trying to be racist. ... Obviously, he deemed that it was disrespectful, and look, if he did I apologize. That's not what I was trying to do."MLB plans to investigate the incident, a source told Newsday's Laura Albanese.White Sox catcher Yasmani Grandal later exchanged words with Donaldson prior to his fifth-inning at-bat. Benches cleared, and while no punches were thrown, Anderson had to be restrained by teammates.

"And I think we're way past that. It's just unacceptable, so I wanted to make sure I got my teammate's back."This isn't the first time Anderson and the White Sox have taken issue with Donaldson. When the two teams met in Chicago, the pair exchanged words following Donaldson's hard tag on Anderson at third base.The South Siders' feud with Donaldson dates back to his two years with the Minnesota Twins. Following an incident last season, White Sox pitcher Lucas Giolito referred to Donaldson as a "f------ pest."Copyright © 2022 Score Media Ventures Inc. All rights reserved.
