    They have plenty of middle infielders that would make Russell expendable. I'd like to see them put a package of Russell, Schwarber and maybe Happ together to find a decent starter from an American League team.

    Cubs pick up Daniel Descalso.

    For two years as well. They are preparing for life without Addy. His ex certainly could have another smoking gun up her sleeve. And plenty of time before he's reinstated to use it.

    I think I've read that Russell's situation is much worse than has already been reported. It always amazes me that a young man, living his professional dream, could be so unhappy in his personal life.

    It is a shame really. The Cubs just need to cut their losses and let him go.

    Baez is a better shortstop anyway. The one advantage Russell has is a history of excellent September and postseason play but Baez is no slouch there either.
