Dont be horsefeathering stupid. He was sent down because he is an abuser.


If it was as simple as that he wouldn't have been called up in the first place.

Re: Addison Russell

We’ve been over how it’s debatable he’s one of the best 25. Also we save money at this point by him being in Iowa. He had bonuses for days being on the active roster. So you animals are happy food is being taken off his children's plates so a billionaire can save some money? I'm fairly confident th...

Re: Addison Russell

He will be on the Cubs the same time they call up Russell when the rosters expand Zobrist will likely be called up before then so he's eligible for the playoff roster. He's already eligible for the playoff roster. I see that now. I didn't realize players on the restricted list were eligible, I thou...

Re: Addison Russell

Sorry, need the room for Zobrist, who is 29 years older than Russell, and is much cooler and better in every possible way (despite proven to be a weirdo).

Re: Addison Russell

It's still Happ who would get sent down for Russell to come up. They could just DFA Tony Kemp like Houston did. Kemp is over 2 years older than Russell, a far less defender with a lower MLB OPS. You know, you could just cut to the chase and say "I don't want anyone on the team who might take p...

Re: Addison Russell

This might trigger some people. but Russell has posted a line of .333/.392/.571/.964 in 12 games since being demoted after a line of .286/.407/.429/.835 the final 19 games in the majors. Only time he didn't hit in the majors this yeas was when dealing with the hand injury. #BEST25 So to summarize, ...

Re: Heyman - Lucroy to Cubs Done

So under the new single-trade-deadline rules, Lucroy won’t be able to make the postseason roster, correct? Sorry if I missed this earlier — I just didn’t see were it was explained. What if, God forbid, Willson can’t go? you can't make trades post deadline, but lucroy was acquired after DFA. Not a t...

Re: On Bended Knee - The Rizzo Thread

Trading him on the back of these two VERY team-friendly team options the next two years is what makes the most sense to me (if we're talking from a brutally cold value assessment). I don’t see that being the case. He’s likely more valuable to us than what he returns. Even if he only costs like $29 ...

Re: Heyman - Lucroy to Cubs Done

Well, his .689 OPS at Busch bodes almost as poorly as his .627 OPS at Wrigley. OPS better than KB's .621 in St Louis, and at least JL gets on base there hitting .295 with a .337 OBP for that OPS. They both have the same amount of hits in St Louis this year, but KB has 17 more AB Wow, thanks for poi...

I don't think Greg Gross is playing anymore. Great pinch hitter, though. Hit .322 for the Cubs in '77 with five homers. He only hit two more homers in the other 16 years he played.

Re: ChiCargo Cubs - AKA that bad man can't hurt you anymore

I don't know that Mueller really fits into the discussion because he was actually good. Which is probably why the Cubs traded him (with cash) for an injured minor league relief pitcher who never took the field in the Cubs system. Remember the ceaseless threads about moving Mueller to second base? T...
