After seeing the A’s in person this season, its hard to root for Donaldson too much. He was impossible to get, and was not particularly friendly even when he was trying to avoid people. I just did not get a very nice vibe off the dude, which is a bummer since seeing the A’s was the highlight of my vacation. He, Norris, Crisp, Moss…pretty much the whole squad sucked autograph wise. Its one of the biggest downsides to autograph collecting (after other autograph collectors…): sometimes its better not to be up close to players that you are a fan of, since you might not like what you see.
Normally I would chalk it up to just a bad run of days, but I have seen other reporting from people saying the A’s were no better other places.
