...and, upon wending their way through the serpentine underground to the trainer's room, George Poulis emerged from behind closed doors to greet the media by torchlight.

Said Poulis: "Mistah Donaldson -- he dead."

It was later added he muttered "the horror! the horror!" under his final breath. Poulis interpreted the curious remark to be Donaldson's take on things to date and neither, as some are wont to speculate, an indictment of the Blue Jays' training staff nor a summary meditation on regret born of stubbornly refusing the rest his banged-up calf sorely needed. Donaldson is survived by near-apoplectic talk radio callers, an anemic line-up and the worst record in major league baseball. He will be missed.
