I have no idea since I wasn't there. I do know people accepted that World Series win with him one of the best 25 players.

None since I didn't him back, but Theo must found a level he accepted to bring him back.

Since he is back and that's out of my control I want the best 25 players and he's one of those right now.

Do you think Aroldis Chapman did the things he was accused of?


Well he didn't video tape himself doing those things while reciting his social security number and then signing an affidavit stating that the person on that tape is him so we can't be too sure.

Funny thing is that while I personally have a 0 tolerance policy for what Russell did, the initial point about 'if they aren't going to release him he should be on the 25 man roster if he's one of the best players' was perfectly reasonable even if I don't personally agree. But all the horsefeathers this guy has said since then to defend himself has extinguished his credibility.

What have I said to defend Russell's off the field actions?

Just because I said I have no idea if Russell did all the things he was accused isn't defending him. He could have done ever more, exactly what was claimed or never stooped to physical abuse. We have no idea, only two people really know that really happened. MLB suspended him and the Cubs tendered him a contact after his ex wife gave her blessing on giving him a second chance. Yet fans don't want to move on like the victim and refuse judge his on the field numbers the same as another players.

Russell has the second highest OPS behind Rizzo's .866 in losses at .844 and has a .798 OPS in 38 starts yet people think he was costing us games because they can't see past the off the field stuff.

1) This might be the most meaningless split I've ever seen
2) If you really want to use it...you're making the case that Russell's individual success is negatively correlated with the team success. So... :good: ?

No... It's a dumb argument either way, but I'm pretty sure what he's saying is that even though people want to keep pointing to the Cubs bad W-L record when Russell plays, Russell has hit just fine in those losses, so how is he really to blame for those? It's all nonsense either way and mostly coincidence.

Either way, I'm glad this dip horsefeathers is off the team.

Russell seems more like a lazy and entitled brat who doesn't think it's important to know things he should know, and thinks he can get away with things he shouldn't get away with.


are we sure Russell can read?


Only if the words he's reading are not on a sign. He can't read signs.

I’m all for second chances when they are deserved, just not with my team who have already went out of their way to acquire another abuser and a homophobe not to mention an ownership who routinely does horrible things like racist emails and tax evasion. Russell’s words and actions since his suspension have done nothing to make me feel he’s deserved another chance and actually have made me less sympathetic as he clearly doesn’t get why people are so angry at him.

There’s more important things out there than baseball ability. Think of what the Cubs are saying to their female fans when they willingly employ these people. Think about what they are saying to their gay fans, their minority fans. I want the Cubs to win and get angry and frustrated when they don’t, but there’s a bigger picture out there and the Cubs are missing it.

...but OJ ran for over an average of 70 yards in games his team lost! That's the highest level ever for RBs with over 1000 rushing attempts who wrote a book detailing how they would have killed their wife!

No I think OJ did it since there is actually evidence linking him to the crime and a long history of police being called to domestic disputes.
