Following the 2015 AL MVP’s exit from the New York Yankees, the Bronx has experienced a whiff of fresh talent. The three-time All-Star, Josh Donaldson’s terribly short tenure paved the way for young talents to hop on board with the Yankees. While some see the tables turn in favor of the Bronx Bombers, some continue to believe that the curse lingers on, this time due to a shocking front office decision.

Referring to Donaldsons’ association with the Yankees as a curse, is not baseless. The 37-year old played only in 34 out of New York’s 131 games. His last game with the Yankees was on 15th July just before getting placed on the injured list for a substantial period of time. Let’s be honest, a prolonged absence has never turned out well.

The Yankees promoted some fine young prodigies concurrently, among whom was Jasson Domniguez. This 20 year old alien was quick to earn the moniker of ‘The Martian’. The management’s attempt for course correction, signing Jasson comes with some skepticism amidst a jinxed locker situation. And yes, it is because Donandson owned the ‘ominous’ locker before him.

The ever so passionate and equally brutal Yankees faithful, had a lot to say. The Yankees allotted Jasson Domínguez the locker that once belonged to Donaldson. So what if it is just a locker? One may think. But given how the season was going for the Yankees, one just cannot be cautious enough.
