    I want to win games... thatís all ... if he wants to be a dirt bag so be it. A good number of pro athletes are and thatís their choice. My choice is to watch a winning baseball team

    Never understood this line of thinking. Baseball wins really shouldnít be that important to you or anyone. I guess I could understand that line of thinking (would still disagree with it) if the player was a superstar.

    But you want to go to bat for a ball player that sucks as much as Russell? Watching winning baseball and having Addison Russell on the team is an oxymoron.

    Russell is better than DD is my point man. Wanting him gone bc heís a bad guy off the field is not a good excuse to have him gone. If he wanted to prove himself for a mill or two then yeah Iíd bring him back. We arenít exactly swimming in payroll flexibility so every chance we can to save and maybe get better or at least not worse would be a good idea.

    If they're dumpster diving, can we at least strike early? They have been a mixed bag in the big ticket line, but they've had some luck in the bargain bin.

    What does that matter? Descalsoís 2.5 mil is guaranteed. Youíd still have to eat that money to just release him. Thereís no way we can carry both guys next year considering they just combined for a -0.3 fWAR. Plus having Almora (-0.7 fWAR). Thatís 3 wasted roster spots that donít even give you a single win? Russell is a simple non tender and be done. He had a chance to prove heís good at baseball and didnít do it. Just be done with him.

    Iíd love to not see DD and Almora in blue pinstripes again. If we are going down the road of getting rid of crap players

    You can have that choice. It's not my choice, but if you want to make that one, you're free to do so. But championing a bad baseball player like Addison Russell is a weird way to do that. Russell sucks.

    Sure, Descalso sucks too. The Cubs can find something better than both. It doesn't have to be an either or proposition.

    Again, there's a lot of viable options out there at a reasonable cost right now. I hope they don't drag their feet and miss out on some

    If they miss on say Treinen then I doubt he was ever really an option. Say what you want but Theo usually gets his guy, whether that be a big or small type deal.

    Friend of mine was college teammates with Pillar. Said he'd just bought a house in the West Bay and his wife is pregnant.

    If you can imagine, he's pissed.
