Absolutely. But you also admit to yourself that you too are a douche for doing it.

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.

So, to clarify: you think people here are sitting around casting unfair judgment on Russell and don't think or recognize that we have done wrong in our own lives in various ways?

How did this tangent possibly make sense to you?

Dear God, Julie Dicaro is talking about this on twitter and I think...I think she just implied that having Chapman in the clubhouse gave young players like Addison the impression that hitting women was acceptable on the Cubs? Or maybe I'm just reading it completely wrong.

Yeah, I'm ashamed about it. And I feel more strongly about the issue because of how much I regret it. I posted it, though, to show we can have faults and be hypocritical and yet still be aware of what is right and wrong.

It was probably my fault for sensing a different kind of vibe then was really happening. It just felt like people were starting to go a bit over the top about it, and they probably weren't.

Also, I don't think it's unfair to think Addy is a douche for this. Never said otherwise.

I just went and looked it up, and even though she denied that's what she was saying - and I believe her when she says that's not what she meant - it sure looked a whole hell of a lot like that's what she was saying.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

You know he and Bryant have had to spend hours on end explaining to their ladies that, "nah honey, that's just him, he's the only one that I know of, we aren't all doing that."

And Schwarbs probably played the shoulder to cry on which led to slipping the tip in and telling her she needs to leave Addi. They've had this animosity brewing, the core players have known about it but have tried to play through it. Now the cat's out of the bag and everyone is relieved. Hell, just coincedence that Kyle broke out with his best game after her post was published?

(I don't believe any of this. Just having fun explaining the reason for so much horsefeathers this season)

Russell isn't in the lineup for the game tonight (that doesn't have a thread) - I imagine that will continue for a while

Unless there's more to this that I don't know, David is probably just referring to the pictures that have occasionally made the rounds showing Rizzo partying with large amounts of attractive women.

For whatever it's worth, it's been a while since I've seen one of those photos and we don't know how long he's been with his fiancee, although we can safely assume it was at least a little while before the World Series, since he felt the need to bring up that she was in bed with him the night before Game 7 in his Players Tribune piece.

Do they "suspend" him until the investigation is completed? I've had that feeling they will.

Poor KB sounds like he had his heart broken

Yeah, what goony said... and from word of mouth il just say that before DV allegations came into the picture, I saw Rizzo and addy as similarly brotastic partiers/womanizers. Which is totally fine imo if you're not married.

His name kind of implies that he's a shady character. Like Rizzo in the movie Grease.
