Commentary: A different take on Baez or Russell at SS

I do not agree. He should not be on this team period! Baez is a far better player and person

Besides his other stuff, I think Russell is a good defender but I haven't been impressed by him offensively in a long time. He has potential offensively though.

I'm excited about all the depth at second base with Bote, Descalso, Zobrist...The team has been rolling with these guys as of late.

I think Russell would be a good backup alongside Bote at SS and in the rotation mix at second too. That's a lot of good infield depth.

However I get where Dan is coming from, he is big on defense up the middle and thinks Russell is elite there.

I don't necessarily disagree with you regarding his status on the team, however, the Cubs are pretty solidly behind bringing him back so it was a moot point. The actual point of the story was since he is clearly going to play where should he play.

Thanks for taking the time to read the story and send us your thoughts. Please keep reading and come back again.
