No idea, but when I Googled his name along with Russell's to see what you were talking about, the top result was a Muskat article about Russell celebrating Mother's Day in '16 with Melisa that should probably just get pulled down.

22. Several really easy ones, of course, but there are some really surprising answers in there.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Any reason we shouldn't be in on Blake Swihart after the Red Sox surprisingly DFA'd him? He has to be better than Taylor Davis at least, and we can't necessarily count on Caratini being as good as he was pre-wrist injury.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I'm surprised they scheduled it for June 3. That means the Angels are playing in Seattle the Sunday before, flying to Chicago for one game, then going back to Anaheim. I thought it was going to end up being on Monday Sept. 23 (Angels in Houston the day before and Anaheim the day after, so I guess th...

That being said ^ . . . Position-for-Position means if you place someone at SS (which TomtheBombadil did), then you must replace him with a SS. I didn't realize that he put Trea Turner at SS, so his swap for Marcus Semien is legit, and I can process both of his requests today. Wait, so he can swap ...

Bench player transaction!! (In case anyone didn't see the rules, you can change a bench player twice per half of the season now but can't do both in the same 30-day period.)

Drop Lamb. Add Tatis Jr.

The "flags fly forever" crowd probably are o.k. with things, even if the window is shut. I don't subscribe to that thinking, but I know plenty who do. It's weird, I absolutely feel like I'm a 'flags fly forever' type, or at least closer to that than the other extreme (I did, after all, wa...

He’s also due $23M per year through the 2022 season.

It's nice to know we're not the only team that signs free agents who immediately go to horsefeathers.

We should probably accept that this is the beginning of the rebuild.

Jim Brown existed. As did Jerry Rice

It was at least physically possible to stop those guys. Nobody did, but it wasn't because it was physically impossible as with Gronk.

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

Early reviews on Shazam are out, and they are good. Consensus is it's either the best or 2nd best DCEU movie depending on how one feels about Wonder Woman (I've never seen a DC movie, but I'm a Zach Levi stan so I will probably see this at some point).
