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.


The silver lining is that you can just save the response thread to that in case you ever need an idea for a 'maybe you shouldn't have said that' gif, which I seem to need a lot these days.

I'll be honest until the last couple of days my thoughts on Russell being with the Cubs next year were that I wasn't happy at all about it, my opinion of the Cubs went down and if it were up to me he'd be gone, but I began to grudgingly accept it. However these last few days have made me realize that not only is Russell a terrible person but he's a raging sociopath who has no business being in society much less on a professional baseball team. He cannot step on the field again as a Chicago Cub.

I can see Theo's reasoning for trying to handle this in a way where they at least try to get something of some sort of value for Russell. He could see it as his responsibility to the other players or something. But if Russell ends up actually playing another inning for the Cubs, then they can all go f themselves.

I'm pretty sure airing of grievences on social media is excused during the festivus season.

I generally like to let facts come out before I am willing to condemn someone. I also believe everyone deserves second chances and giving people the opportunity to apologize and move forward. I have been willing to give Russell such an opportunity and thought maybe the Cubs are doing the same. I can respect the Cubs if they honestly intended to do so.

However, the more that is coming out the more I too want Russell gone. The stories are troubling because they speak to an overall lack of character more so than Russell making stupid mistakes. His production hasn't been great, and his salary can't be an issue. The only thing I can fathom is the Cubs are either desperately trying to recover some value out of this situation, or this is all to stay in Boras' good graces. Neither reason is worth it, and he needs to go.

For a team that needs to make five moves just to make one signing, it blows my mind that they aren't making the easiest move possible to free up $4 million dollars by setting free a horsefeathers person and player.

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.

I've seen it too, and I can't get myself to read through any of the Addison apologist/men's rights activist [expletive] all over the horsefeathering place.

Hell, I'm someone who used to regularly watch Fox News, and even occasionally stomach visits to dark places on the web such as The Daily Stormer, simply to educate myself more about how the full spectrum of morons to monsters view the world and craft their arguments. I can't get myself to have exchanges with the garbage people anymore.

Yeah, that stuff is no good for you. I feel like I can get a decent idea of how horrible people can by just living life. No need to seek it out. Hell, a co-worker's husband decided the Christmas party was a great place to decry homosexuality. I barely got out of there without the Mrs taking a swing at him. I was kinda proud of her, but still.

It's really not good for the soul, but I can't help it.

Then I read horsefeathers like this:

Some women that want out of a marriage, provoke too the point of no return, knowing that a couple bruises and children involved will bring monetary revenge. They actually aren't happy unless the man is ruined. Women can be quite snarky bitches and that gets a pass a lot. I don't believe in hitting women period but a lot of them are provoking it too.


and wonder why I'm such a glutton for it.

Ok, then horsefeathers Carl and Heyward too, though for whatever reason when you click on all the comments, Heyward's doesn't show up, so maybe there's a chance he went in and deleted that one (no idea how Instagram looks). Also says 'Comments on this post have been limited', whatever that means.
