Josh Donaldson, as expected, declines the Braves’ qualifying offer

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports To the surprise of exactly no one, Josh Donaldson declined his QO There were a few players that had some reasonably tough decisions with their qualifying offers. Most of us would have bet that former Giants reliever Will Smith was the guy that was going to be the most likely to accept, but then the Braves went ahead and signed him to multi-year deal so who the hell knows anymore. However, the guy that had one of the easier decisions to make was Josh Donaldson. Aside from the rumors that Donaldson already has half a dozen teams that want him including the...

2019 Atlanta Braves Season in Review: Josh Donaldson

2019 Atlanta Braves Season in Review: Josh Donaldson

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ The Bringer of Rain’s 2019 season was a personal and team success.

Donaldson anchored a strong offense from the cleanup spot, and...
