So long Addison Russell and good riddance. I don't care what jersey you wear, if you're a woman abuser, you're dead to me. Good luck finding another city willing to accept an abusive asshole on the downside of his career like you. @Cubs #GoCubsGo pic.twitter.com/cvyvnAoPXt— Billy Krumb (@ClubhouseCancer) December 2, 2019

Now that it's probably over, I think we can safely say that the Cubs' handling of the Addison Russell situation will live on as a permanent example of what a front office and manager should *not* do or say.— Christina Kahrl (@ChristinaKahrl) December 3, 2019
Just from a pure baseball perspective Addison Russell represents a great buy-low opportunity for any MLB team that wants to overtly and gratuitously insult its fan base. Every team looking to show its fans how shitty and cynical it is would benefit from his services.— David Roth (@david_j_roth) December 3, 2019
