wonder who claimed Harper... anywho, I'd have serious mixed feelings about this. I hate it if it's the end of Bote. I dislike it if it pushes Russell to the bench. I am indifferent if he becomes worlds series hero. basically I hate him so whatever

My guess would be Russell to the DL. Mix and match in September when rosters expand.

Daniel Murphy's range makes Travis Shaw look like Addison Russell

This is a much-needed trade for the offense.

I know others disagree, but Murphy makes perfect sense. I suppose if you actually don't think Addison Russell is crappy, then I can see it. But, yeah, Addison Russell is complete crap.

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.

Murphy was a 5-war 2B last year who was a serviceable defender there. If you squint you can chalk up his poor defense this year to rust and the process of working back from the knee injury. His bat has been fine since July 1 - .336/.379/.514

he does hate the gays though. Have the cubs already done their pride day

Very little.

People clear waivers way easier than everyone assumes, for whatever reason. Blocking unless you really intend on making a trade seems to be pretty rare, it's an unwritten agreement.

his offensive numbers this year are good, even without arbitrary endpoints (but recently better like imb pointed out)

abysmal at defense and baserunning tho, but that's noisy so meh

I really don't think people are realizing that the Cubs don't want to keep having to bat Addison Russell this season. It has nothing to do with KB, in my opinion.

Also, Daniel Murphy will rank fifth on our team in slugging, even ahead of Rizzo. And way, way ahead of Addison Russell.

This is also just purely talking baseball. I don't advocate Daniel Murphy as a person from the public stuff that is known.

Sounds like the Dodgers grabbed Harper off waivers.

If they can work out a deal, that's bad news for this offseason if you believe that having 2 months of experience in LA will at all affect his odds of signing with the Cubs.

maddon gave a positive update today that he's been taking some swings and feeling good

still no real timetable tho. i figure they're gonna let him sit as long as possible while the team's playoff outlook remains good bc why not.

He's owed something like $4m for the rest of the season, so no team out of the playoff hunt is going to take him. Milwaukee probably isn't going to take another infielder who is also due a good paycheck. He's a platoon player that can't field.
