Re: Addison Russell

I want him off the team, but I'd be okay with suspending him for now and trading him in the offseason. This. Ricketts, Theo, and Jed don't seem like the kind of guys who will sit on their hands and let this one play out. He needs to be gone until this is investigated and let the dust settle where i...

Re: Addison Russell

Maybe. Those people also still celebrate the 2016 World Series which they don’t win without Aroldis Chapman. So in the end, winning is going to cure all even though it might feel gross to some. Just because most of us that have no skin in the game are able to rationalize it doesn’t make it any less...

Re: Addison Russell

I am going to go ahead and commit NSBB suicide with my first post and ask why everyone cares so much about what athletes do? I mean we all watch these guys because they are really really good at baseball, not because they are heros or better people, right? Specifically with Murphy, I don't like him...

Murphy doesn’t belong in the same universe as the other two. It doesn't matter that Murphy isn't leading the "horsefeathers" competition. He's still competing in it. I am going to go ahead and commit NSBB suicide with my first post and ask why everyone cares so much about what athletes do...

Re: Addison Russell

He’s definitely done for this season given the timing, I can’t quite picture what would be needed from Russel’s Side to have him in a Cub uniform next year. Different scenario, but that big time prospect with the pedohilia charge just went undrafted and unsigned, this horsefeathers isn’t being tole...

Re: Addison Russell

Do we really think the Cubs are going to do something about this? I honestly would be surprised if they did. The post doesn’t get any more specific than “put his hands on me” with physical abuse, and it’s a lot easier to talk yourself out of punishing Russell for being a manipulative and unfaithful...

Well, yeah; it's horsefeathering bitcoin. I was gonna say, 500 BTC in 2018 is likely to be worth quite a bit more than 500 BTC in 2020, so even if you only get #2 and #3, you come out ahead!* *Assuming you immediately liquidate the BTC and never speak of it again https://orig12.deviantart.net/6a05/...

Re: It's Maddoning

I could see the FO re-remaking the coaching staff this year with an eye toward finding someone to be an in-house Maddon replacement soon. Maddon could either step away after next year if things go really well (or really badly) in these playoffs and 2019, or sign a short-term deal after 2019. I coul...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

I can't figure out why they went with that formation again for Mexico. That player pool(and really the player pool at large) seems really set up well to do a 4-3-3 that retreats to a 4-2-3-1 against good teams. You've got a bunch of young defensive mids with some attacking prowess(McKennie, Adams, A...

Re: The Cardinals

If the Cubs go 15-14 to end the season, it means the Cardinals need to play at a 110 win pace to tie and 116 win pace to win the division. The Cardinals are closer to 5th in the wild card race than they are to the division lead. The Cardinals have played at a 126 win pace in August and gained 3 game...
