I'm not giving up or abandoning him. I'm just getting discouraged.

I was following him when he was in Oakland's organization. I want to say it was around the 4th of July when my buddy called me to tell me that the Cubs made a trade and received Oakland's top prospect. I asked if it was Addison Russell and he said he's not sure but he thinks it was. When I found out it was, I could not have been happier.

After being in his camp when he wasn't even on this team it's getting pretty aggravating seeing no improvement from him at all. I thought he was going to be a superstar. I'm just lowering my expectations.

As it turns out, I'm usually wrong about prospects that I track for a long time! Haha
