The Athletics lost a critical game against the Rangers on Tuesday night, but in the course of that loss A's third baseman Josh Donaldson made a ridiculous snare of a foul ball and did so at great personal hazard. Fathom:

That's exceptional concentration, spatial awareness, fortitude, moxie, etc.

Count this among the many reasons that I'm advocating that the A's henceforth be called, with official sanction, the "Fightin' A's." Because they fight and stuff.
