I despise Joe Maddon more than anyone who has ever worn a Cubs uniform, and that includes Cap Anson.

This is true, and game recognizes game, so I'm unquestionably right on this.

I hated Hundley and I was like 13 at the time and hadn't moved past hero worship of anyone who was on a sports team yet.

The only other king of the hated (with apologies to LaTroy Hawkins and a few others) is Edwin Jackson. I know he's a decent guy and it wasn't his fault he was Theo's first big FA signing here, but my God, that dude's work for the Cubs just made me angry on a visceral level unseen before or since.

most of my hate is for pitchers - glendon rusch (though he follows me on twitter now so he's cool) shawn estes and jason maquis.

i find it hard to hate jaxon that much for his performance because of how bad most of those teams were.

as a deep cut, i'd like to throw 2015 brian schlitter in the mix. i would get so mad when joe would bring him in. i'm amazed that was somehow only 7 innings. felt like 50+

There are several former Cubs I disliked, but Russell has the honor of being the only Cub I actively root against.

i primarily hated schlitter because there would always be an obligatory poster who would say

I freely admit I was probably directing some of my general hatred of our suckiness at Jackson. There was nothing rational about it.

Juan Pierre, I hate everything he was supposed to stand for (leadoff guy, base stealer, etc.). But mostly, I hate Dusty Baker.

I think Russell is the product of a terrible upbringing who brought his learning history with him. I'm not excusing his behavior. I don't think he gets it still with his recent comments. I don't think he understands why what he did was wrong. I think he only understands that he got into trouble and is acting his way out of it. He needs a good psychologist and to see the outcomes of his actions by being made to volunteer with social workers who attempt to help battered women. I think he should have been suspended for a year at least to work on his behavioral problems. I think they are much deeper than beating on women. I don't think he's going to be a passable baseball player until he deals with his behavioral problems. I certainly don't think he should be in uniform at all right now, and never again for the Cubs.
