Re: homophobe (Daniel Murphy), incoming (to the Cubs)

Yeah, I'm not totally updated on our minor league system, but I never have heard of the guy we gave up for Murphy and likely never will.

That's just some stupid talk by them.

Re: homophobe (Daniel Murphy), incoming (to the Cubs)

If he's taking Russell's ABs, good. If he's taking anyone else's ABs, it's probably still ok but less good. Also, even though it makes perfect sense, it's kind of funny that the week Darvish probably becomes toast and Quintana continues to look like ass and we seem to desperately need a 4th playoff...

Re: homophobe (Daniel Murphy), incoming (to the Cubs)

Random question for the non-baseball side.

I've been slowly collecting signed World Series pictures of the 25-man roster. In the end, do I just finish the project at 24 or do you add Chapman?

Re: homophobe (Daniel Murphy), incoming (to the Cubs)

So what is the 25 man roster move that is made now... -Bote to AAA? -LaStella DFA? -Russell to DL? -Other? Hopefully it’s Tommy being cut, but probably Russell to the DL. Randy could maybe be sent down too. If they would actually send Bote to the minors as the corresponding move, yeah, that would n...

Re: homophobe, incoming

he is generally loathsome but it's being kind of overlooked here that he was top 10 offensive player in baseball for the previous 2 seasons and is red hot right now, and rarely strikes out. he just makes our defense sooo much worse.

Re: homophobe, incoming

KB died, didn’t he? I really don't think people are realizing that the Cubs don't want to keep having to bat Addison Russell this season. It has nothing to do with KB, in my opinion. Also, Daniel Murphy will rank fifth on our team in slugging, even ahead of Rizzo. And way, way ahead of Addison Russ...

Re: homophobe, incoming

This is a much-needed trade for the offense.

I know others disagree, but Murphy makes perfect sense. I suppose if you actually don't think Addison Russell is crappy, then I can see it. But, yeah, Addison Russell is complete crap.

If Russell is hurt it does


It makes sense even if Russell is 100 percent healthy. Addison Russell sucks. Put Baez at SS and Murphy at 2B and it helps an offense that slumps way too often. Then put Russell in for defense later in games.

That’s just silly. At some point the payroll starts to add up. Sure but more important is the money hasn’t run out.

Chatwood - definitely Darvish - probably just because so much of the perceived value is tied to the first couple seasons Morrow - eh, maybe. It’s not too unexpected though and he’s excellent when out there Cishek - sign 5 of him Don't forget Duensing. ETA: Can't imagine it's only a probably on Darv...

I for sure, no joke, think Addison Russell is a really bad offensive player and I think he's only getting worse. If he ever gets his slugging percentage near .400 maybe I will think he's average.
