Josh Donaldson wants to stay with the Toronto Blue Jays. He has said as much fairly recently. But other than his one-year deal that will see him through the upcoming season, there are no long-term offers to speak of. However, that’s not stopping the rumors.

Earlier on Thursday, Jon Heyman would report that Donaldson was looking for a “monster payday.” But the Blue Jays’ third baseman is having none of that. And in fact, would take to Twitter to voice his displeasure.

I respect what you do for a living, but you don’t know my friends. Nor do my friends know what I want, because there is still information to be gathered. I haven’t asked for anything. What I have said is I would like to stay.

But he doesn’t stop there.

I would listen to an offer, but I haven’t had one to listen to so it’s been pretty easy. Thanks for your concern about my future and next time I hope you put a name by it, because you are using my name in a manner I don’t appreciate.

Last month, Donaldson would express his future.

I’ve said I’ve wanted to be here. That’s pretty much all I can say. I’m not the one that makes the decisions, nor would I try to put them in that position to do that. I believe the situation will become more fluid when the time is right. The time hasn’t been right, to this moment, to my knowledge.

But with such a slow market, rumors roam free. That said, Donaldson isn’t here to to humor them. Good for him.
