What are the odds that we get even just one of his teammates at least saying that this sort of thing is wrong?

Odds are better that Carlos Zambrano pitches another no hitter for the Cubs.

It's a boys' club, and they don't turn on one another. Remember how the Brewers trotted out every minority player on their roster to talk about what a great guy Hader is after his tweets surfaced?

The Cubs should have a 24 man roster until Addison is cut or his suspension ends. Addison was my favorite player. Bought his jersey over Rizzo, Bryant, or any of the other 2015 luminaries.

MLB only suspends people with mounds of evidence. The teams should suffer as well. A teammate or executive might have intervened earlier if they knew relief pitchers would have to pinch hit in extra innings.

Yes, it’s Addison’s responsibility and he should take the brunt of the punishment. This is gross and needs to stop. Tip of the hat to people who predicted a situation like this when the Cubs signed Aroldis Chapman. May not be a direct correlation but here we are.

Friend of a friend has good connections with a baseball agent and ive heard a couple times now that KB and Mrs KB are really pissed at both the cubs and boras for how they’re handling this. Grain of salt, obviously, but throwing it out there.

Makes sense. In that article by Melisa she stated that Jessica was one of her best friends in the Cubs wives circle.

Under the potentially lazy assumption that the Harpers and the Bryants agree on most things, it kinda takes away from the argument that we are trying to not piss off Boras and screw up any Harper negotiation.

The fact that they are pissing each other off is a good sign, imo. It means they are negociating.

Second chance? Wouldn't this be more like a fourth or fifth chance, at least?

All previous crimes count towards your first chance until you're caught.

Also they can't charge a husband and a wife with the same crime. And if you ask a cop if they are a cop they have to tell you, so always ask.

No, I saw somewhere that players are not allowed at any team functions while on suspension.
