TORONTO - Josh Donaldson estimates hes watched thousands of hours of Jose Bautista game tape, modelling his swing — right down to the leg kick — after the Toronto Blue Jays star right-fielder.The two became teammates in a late-night trade Friday, creating what Donaldson said could be the most potent lineup in Major League Baseball this season.I spoke to (Bautista) at the all-star game and let him know Ive studied a lot of his work, and really appreciate what hes accomplished up to this point in his career, Donaldson said on a conference call Saturday.The third baseman called Bautista one of the best outfielders and hitters in all of baseball.I feel like this team is going to be so talented, he said. Its going to be nice, and its also going to be interesting to see what happens because I feel like its going to be a pretty fun year.The 28-year-old was home simultaneously playing some old-school Mortal Kombat and watching the Golf Channel on Friday night, when his phone alerted him to the news. He was headed to Toronto in a shocking deal that sent Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie, plus shortstop Franklin Barreto and pitchers Sean Nolin and Kendall Graveman, to the Oakland Athletics.My phone started exploding. I decided to check it out, Donaldson said. The first text I see is Blue Jays I was like Yup, I just got traded.The 28-year-old Donaldson virtually came out of nowhere in 2012, and finished eighth in AL MVP voting this year after hitting .255 for Oakland with 29 home runs and 98 RBIs. A right-handed hitter, Donaldson had a .342 on-base percentage while finishing sixth in the American League with 76 walks. He has a career batting average of .268 with 63 home runs and 228 RBIs and a .347 on-base percentage in 405 games.Donaldson said the trade was a little bit ahead of schedule, but he hopes to bring a habit of winning to Toronto.Ever since I was five years old, my teams have won, the all-star said. Im not saying that its necessarily just me thats causing that, but I think theres a mentality about winning. I just hope to be able to come in and instil that winning mentality.Donaldson already had fond feelings for Toronto after making his debut in the majors here in 2010, recording his first major league hit, a two-run home run, at Rogers Centre.I remember Toronto was a great place, a great city, its just one of those melting pots, you kind of have a little bit of everything in Toronto, he said. Every time Ive been there its been very beautiful and Ive enjoyed my time there.Donaldson said he believes that the bold move by Alex Anthopoulos shows the Jays GM is determined to turn the team around immediately.Last week, Anthopoulos signed star catcher Russell Martin as a free agent.I 100 per cent can say theyre trying to win right now, Donaldson said. What theyre also trying to do is prepare themselves for the future, and Russell Martin has a long-term deal. . . With (Marcus) Stroman and a couple of guys on that staff, they have a young nucleus of pitchers who are very talented. So I definitely think the elements are there to win, its just about going out there and playing the game.Donaldson, known also for his sure-handed, athletic defending, said playing on the punishing turf of Rogers Centre could take some getting used to after the grass of Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.He has a bit of experience with Torontos turf after playing a three-game series here. He switched up his cleats between hitting and playing defence, to help soften some of the pounding.It helped, because the third game I played there in a row, I was definitely starting to feel that I was playing on turf, Donaldson said. And then whenever I decided Hey, Im going to start changing my shoes from defence to offence, it really made a significant difference in how my body was feeling.So, its going to take some getting used to. I definitely believe that I can do it and I will do it. So I really think it will be a non-issue.Hours after the deal, Donaldson said he was still a little shocked.But I tell you what, he said. Somebody Id seen on Twitter or something the other day, somebody had put me in one of those Toronto Blue Jays uniforms, the all-whites, and I tell you what, those uniforms are pretty sexy.Lawrie, meanwhile, sent a note to Toronto fans via Twitter on Saturday.You fans made my time in Toronto unforgettable, the native of Langley, B.C., said in a note posted as a photo. I cannot thank you enough for allowing me to play in my own backyard with the (Maple Leaf) on my chest every day. It was a blessing and it will be truly missed!New chapter is upon me, he added, and I intend to make it worth it!!!!! Tanner Glass Jersey . The flanker began his comeback from a right shoulder injury by coming off the bench on Saturday when Wales opened with a victory over Italy. Warburton replaces Justin Tipuric, one of three changes announced on Tuesday by coach Warren Gatland. Brett Kulak Jersey .1 million contract. The club said that Boll will earn $950,000 in 2012-13 and $1.15 million in 2013-14. The 26-year-old Boll had two goals and one assist with 126 penalty minutes in 54 games with the Blue Jackets in 2011-12. . -- Masahiro Tanaka knows that first appearance in a spring training game for the New York Yankees will be scrutinized. Eddie Lack Jersey . -- A deflected pass that landed in DeSean Jacksons hands. Matt Stajan Jersey . She was 30. The former British No. 1 died peacefully surrounded by family and friends, the Womens Tennis Association said on its website. The Kyiv-born Baltacha, who represented Britain at the 2012 London Olympics, was diagnosed with the illness in January, two months after retiring from tennis and only weeks after she married her long-time coach Nino Severino.TAIPEI, Taiwan - Six days after taking the No. 1 spot in the world from Stacy Lewis, Inbee Park was a notch above the American again at Miramar.Park won the LPGA Taiwan Championship on Sunday for her third victory of the year and 12th tour title, holding off Lewis by two strokes.The 26-year-old South Korean player closed with a 1-under 71 in light rain to finish at 22-under 266. The victory capped a hectic Asian trip centred around her marriage last month to swing coach Gi Hyeob-nam.I think this will be my wedding gift for myself, Park said. Its a good feeling and maybe people who said, Shes not going to play as well as when she was not married. I think we can put that wrong.Park shot 64-62-69 to take a four-stroke lead over Lewis and Chinas Shanshan Feng into the final round.I think playing with Stacy, I really wanted to play well, Park said. Obviously, being able to win the tournament was a great accomplishment. It was a tough day and I got nervous on every hole today, even on the 18th hole.The second-ranked Lewis, also a three-time winner this year, shot 69.I hung in there all day and just made Inbee work for it, Lewis said. That was the goal. You give Inbee four shots, its a tough task to overcome. She hit the shots when she needed to coming in.After Lewis birdied the par-4 16th to pull within one, Park birdied the par-3 17th to reggain her two-stroke lead.ddddddddddddHer only other birdies came on the first two holes and she bogeyed the last two holes on the front nine.I dont think this is the last time well be battling at the end of a tournament, Lewis said. I think were both playing some really good golf right now. Its unfortunate, I guess, for the fans its the end of the season, but we have a few tournaments left and hopefully well do it again.Park won the Manulife Financial in June in Canada and took the LPGA Championship in August for her fifth major title. Last year, she swept the first three majors and won six times.Third-ranked Lydia Ko was third at 17 under after a 66, the best score Sunday. The 17-year-old New Zealander won the Swinging Skirts World Ladies Masters in December at Miramar.I think I played really well here in Asia, Ko said. Ive enjoyed it and Im excited for a week off next week.Spains Azahara Munoz had a 69 to finish fourth at 16 underFeng closed with a 76 to drop into a tie for sixth at 13 under.Michelle Wie had weekend rounds of 72-72 to tie for 20th at 6 under in a group that included Norways Suzann Pettersen and Taiwans Yani Tseng. Pettersen, the winner the last two years at Sunrise, finished with a 71. Tseng, the winner of the inaugural event in 2011, shot 70. She won the last of her 15 LPGA Tour titles in March 2012.
