He hasn’t even used his Twitter since mid may of ‘19. Nothing bad happened, right?
He was gone for a while before he popped into the Is Duke Silver Dead? thread in February of last year. viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2620&hilit=duke+silver&start=30
I was legitimately relieved and happy when he popped into that thread. Total starlin gif reaction from me at my breakfast table.
I could be wrong, but I feel like I remember him saying something about the Ricketts being owners/Addison Russell being on the team as dampening his enjoyment of the cubs before he basically stopped posting.
Yeah, Duke said the Cubs being run by and employing turd humans completely turned him off to following them, and killed the fun of talking about them. Good for him.
this is not what happened. he disappeared after they blew the division to the brewers in 2018 and then briefly came back when it looked like the cubs were good again early last season. his personality was always tied to the cubs winning. i know he was plenty appalled at the off-field stuff (all of us here are), but he didn't stop following the cubs because of it.
tree, on the other hand, appears to have legitimately quit the cubs after the russell stuff. i remember he said something about us all being complicit if we continued following the cubs after that, and then he basically bolted. he's better than us for it.
