Starlin.

Assuming that we’ve seen the last of Addison Russell, how would we feel about a reunion with the guy he bumped out of town?

We know he’s for sale, but would he be worth the Marlins generally high asking price?

Maybe build something around Happ or Almora?

Re: Addison Russell

It's not a competition. He's a garbage person, and the Cubs knew it. So because a guy has different opinions than you, that makes him a horsefeathers person? I 100% disagree with Murphy but it’s his opinion. And my guess is, he’s far from the only one on the Cubs that disagrees with the gay lifesty...

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

Back to the baseball side of things, he will make the lineup significantly tougher. I'd have to imagine he'll play against most every righty. With Bryant back soon, the ideal lineup starts to get ridiculously deep : RF - Zobrist 2B - Murphy 3B - Bryant 1B - Rizzo SS - Baez LF - Schwarber C - Contre...

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

Just wanted to read Brett's take, and Bleacher nation comments are a dumpster fire. All out culture war. Honestly, that's why I put in the (nearly) zero tolerance policy from the beginning.

My thinking is that his agent is just killing time while they play wait and see if the Yankees can free up some cash by moving Elsbury, and if somebody bites, then they bite.

Just thinking about the gut-punch dealt to the Brewers. With their win and Colorodo’s loss today, if only the Brewers could have hung onto that 6-0 lead last night, they’d have pushed a 1 game playoff to advance to a 1 game playoff.
