Josh Donaldson humorously enters Christian Yelich-Yu Darvish beef

The sudden Twitter beef between Christian Yelich and Yu Darvish is, at the very least, entertaining to the rest of baseball.

Yelich reacted strongly to suggestions that he may have been stealing signs against Yu Darvish in a 2019 game between the Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs. The post spread across Twitter quickly, with much attention being devoted to Yelich’s remark to Darvish that “nobody needs help facing you.”

One figure seemed to disagree. Enter Josh Donaldson, who was open to a little help against Darvish.

Donaldson is a miserable 4-for-22 lifetime against Darvish, with nothing but singles. That’s a sharp contrast with Yelich, who’s 4-for-11 with two home runs off the Cubs starter.

Donaldson, who spent 2019 with the Atlanta Braves, is currently a sought-after free agent. One rumor has him staying in the NL, so he might want to get those tips from Yelich as soon as possible.
