Minnesota Twins third baseman Josh Donaldson hit a two-run homer off Chicago White Sox pitcher Lucas Giolito on Tuesday night, and appeared to say “Hand’s not sticky anymore; it’s not sticky anymore” while crossing home plate. That’s in reference to Major League Baseball’s recent foreign substance ban, so Donaldson basically implied that Giolito can’t use sticky substances any longer and is losing effectiveness as a result.

And during the postgame press conference, Giolito went off, referring to to Donaldson as “classless” and a “fucking pest.” Giolito also said, “If you’re going to talk shit, talk shit to my face.”

Well, Donaldson addressed the situation before Wednesday night’s game, and said that he and Giolito had a chat about all this in the parking lot late on Tuesday night. Donaldson claims he said, “I’m in your face, what do you have to say about that?” Giolito, according to Donaldson, “didn’t have a response” to that line.

Then came Wednesday night’s game. And in the first inning, Donaldson blasted another dinger, before getting a long look at it and bat-flipping. He heard it from White Sox fans as he rounded the bases.

Dylan Cease won the battle with a strikeout in the third inning and stared down Donaldson before strutting off the mound.

So, this Donaldson vs White Sox feud is certainly entertaining and doesn’t appear to be going away soon.
