It helps rotation speed,” Donaldson said on Wednesday Said before the game. “Guess what, Mr. Giolito: Your fastball spin speed has dropped by 200. Your curveball spin speed has dropped by 400 to 500. Your slider has dropped by 200.
“So see if we are going to talk about class-which side would you choose? Are you going to be on the side of the people participating in the game, or are you on the side that might cheat before this happens?”
