What is it exactly about the NBA and NFL that you are referring to in this, and the 2nd post?

You're assuming that we all also watch the NBA or the NFL. You're also acting like this (domestic abuse) isn't a "common occurrence" in baseball. You're also acting like simply watching a game automatically means someone is making money for a team.

Basically your priorities in all of this are calling out the people fed up with it as opposed to the abhorrent human being the Cubs are willfully employing as a player.

Sorry to assume you guys watch other sports in between posting. Baby momma #2 isn't talking about domestic abuse at all. Don't make that leap. She's mad she got paid in small bills and quarters and that Russell isn't in the babies life. The domestic abuse "occurrences" in football are on another level compared to baseball.

Yeah, Russell needs to go. Yesterday.

I'm so sick and tired of seeing the Cubs walk down this ugly path. Ever since they brought Aroldis Chapman in, this team has become harder and harder to cheer for.

If you don't want it known publically that you're a petty douchebag, don't be a petty douchebag. That you feel entitled to garbage behavior being kept secret says some scary things about you.

I never thought I would say this but this whole thing is so distasteful that I really dont want to watch the games while he's on the roster

i know this is easy for me to say given that i already watched them win a world series with chapman on the mound and that it's not like everything will be 100 percent A-OK the second after they get rid of Russell but I just feel like I've had enough of this horsefeathers. The Ricketts deal, this horsefeathers, it's just too much

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.

A statement? Yeah, I can just imagine the headlines now...

I think it basically just comes down to your own personal conscience and sanity.

Btw, anyone know a good tat removal service?

Just stop. That you keep calling her that and dismiss what happened to her like it's nothing is ridiculous. That's not normal, acceptable behavior from Russell, or anyone else.

The domestic abuse "occurrences" in football are on another level compared to baseball.


Baseball players aren't a special segment of the population unlikely to be committing these types of crimes/abuses less than another segment, so you're just pulling this out of your ass because more football players have been caught to this point.

Yeah I think that's the line I'm drawing too. I'm going to watch the games, because I frankly don't have the willpower not to, but I'm not buying tickets while Russell's on the team.

And one of the more striking things to this saga is that Russell's not even good anymore, which shows just how little of a crap the team gives. The Chapman thing was rightly described as a deal with the devil because they did something bad for a much better chance at the world series. At this juncture they are holding onto Russell because they'd rather pay him $4m to be league average than pay Jody Mercer $5m to be slightly worse. The stakes could barely be any lower for dumping him, and yet they're still plowing ahead. Unreal.

Yeah, it’s how I feel. I’ll still end up getting MLB TV so I can watch, but the yearly trip or 3 to Wrigley for games I’ll reconsider doing other trips and won’t be buying any new merch or apparel or whatever.

Yup. Just cut him and sign Tulo for the minimum. I would assume that would be a plenty appealing spot for Tulo to come here with the playing time opportunities and we get this monster away. Whatever money we save on cutting Russell and signing Tulo should be sent to the moms and kids as well. Or something like that to take care of these women and children.

I really want to say I'd hit them in the pockets or whatever, but truth is, even if I say I wouldn't buy any merchandise (which I probably won't), if we sign Harper, I am probably buying all kinds of horsefeathers. No longer going to be a STH, but I probably still will attend some games next year, too. So, yeah, totally a hypocrite when it comes down to it.

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

horsefeathers, I'll still go to games; I'm just not spending any money. These are season tickets that someone else has already bought, so, whatever, I've got no qualms if someone offers me one of those. But if someone asks something like, "hey, I'm picking up tickets for next weeks' game; you want me to get one for you," I'm gonna bow out.

But the merch, forget it. I was looking to get some new jerseys and shirts since all the ones I had were too huge now, but, nah, can't do it.

Holy horsefeathers! His argument is that being an abusive horsefeathers reduces the cost for the Cubs, so they should take advantage of that rather than doing the morally superior thing:

"...but Russell’s bigger-than-baseball issues provide salary relief that should keep them side by side in 2019..."

horsefeathers Phil Rogers right in the ear.
