Josh Donaldson Is Happy to Not Face Jon Lester Anymore

Respect.

Josh Donaldson was only teammates with Jon Lester for a few months, but he cherished not having to face the All-Star lefty during that time. But when the powerful third baseman was traded to Toronto, and Lester was considering a return to Boston, it looked like the ex-teammates might face off frequently in the AL East. Lester ultimately chose the National League, and to say Donaldson was relieved would be an understatement.

@BringerOfRain20 Ha! Thanks buddy!

Donaldson and Lester are two must-follows on Twitter.
