Jeez. Are you baiting him to try and come back? Because that's a low blow.

Yet he got 40 games counting when he was on leave during the investigation. Herrera got 109 counting the time he was on leave, Torres got 100 and Osuna got 75 so why did Russell get just 40?


Because he's lucky enough to be employed by a scumbag org.

I always miss these blowups. Link?

Starts on that page somewhere, he was mad people (or specific people) were responding to posts of his on a message board that wasn’t even his own ideas/content but largely other writers info. It was weird.


viewtopic.php?f=3&t=39&start=1625


No wonder I don't frequent that forum. Seems like nothing but hot takes (ie guessing) about players who probably won't even make the majors. And then people getting mad about it.

I was thinking about this the other day. I've concluded all professional sports teams are scumbag organizations.

Not saying it will happen, but the Cubs coming back from a 3-1 deficit to win the World Series does seem like the appropriate way to cap off this season and make the 30-for-30 even better.

Back in 2012-14, that forum was the most exciting one on here each night. It was an amazing time.

Trade him for Keone Kela. 2 headcases that might benefit from a change of scenery.


I'd be okay with releasing him and bringing back Bobby Hill.

How could we know? It's one of those "he said, she said" situations in which he's known to be a monster who made his wife miserable through years of verbal and emotional abuse, and she has no reason to lie about the abuse also being physical. Flip a coin, we just have no idea who could be telling the truth.

but there is a wide gap between saying bad things and physical abuse.

No, there really isn't. But if you're the kind of scumbag who thinks verbal and emotional abuse can be described as "saying bad things" or being a "mean boyfriend" it would be pointless to explain further.

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

1. Only the worst people accuse other people of being triggered.

2. I hope he continues to rake for Iowa. That should make him easier to trade.

That’s not very impressive for a 25 year old in the PCL.

At the risk of engaging, even if you ignore all the off-field stuff and the not knowing the signs despite being in the organization for five years stuff, Kemp is a better fit for this roster right now than Russell is.

I’m somewhat curious to see if they bring him back after rosters expand, but unless there’s an injury or Zobrist doesn’t come back for some reason, I don’t really see the point.

Yeah, the only way he comes up now is if Baez, god forbid, gets hurt. As long as Happ is *checks notes* slashing .300 .391 .650 1.041 playing actual baseball, Russell can go horsefeathers himself.

I MUCH prefer the idea that he's being kept down because he's a horsefeathers person.

He's also at 55 games on the MLB roster, with off days and games he didn't play in he's probably hit the 60 days on the active roster contract incentive, but not calling him up in September probably saves $100,000 for the 90 days on active roster incentive.

He's younger than league average hitter by 16 months, His .891 OPS in Iowa is better than league average by .056 points and .108 better than the Iowa average since they don't play as many games in the extreme hitters parks of the league.

He's basically just Baez insurance at this point. Which...whatever.

1. You guys are clearly triggered by Russell. One post about how well he's playing blows this thread up with you guys coming to be negative.

2. You are wrong about this as well. Playing good in Iowa will keep him on the Cubs at a lower contact, being in the majors would get him out of the organization since his arbitration number would be higher.

The whole "he's only a boy playing a man's game" shtick doesn't really fly anymore when he's got just shy of 600 games at the major league level.

Look at you acting like it was some innocuous post that just happened to bring up how Russell has been doing. That's adorable.
