Not looking good for Ole Addy. I wonder what the Cubs will do?

I think they're stuck. Few, if any, teams will take him at this point, and the hit parade keeps piling on with allegations, accusations and articles. Hot potato to keep on board, and no trade value. Probably should have non-tendered him at this point, just to be rid of him. He WILL be a PR nightmare in 2019 if they keep him.

It will be interesting to see what they plan to do and if they backtrack from their statements after the latest allegations with his oldest baby momma.

Russell is in serious trouble now that two of his exes have teamed up. I don't see any further punishment from MLB, as the details released by Reidy the other day was just further explanation and clarification of the original allegations. Where I see trouble coming is from the Cubs, who, last I knew, had not completed their investigation. Bye-bye Addy.

Amazing how much energy one has when he doesn't expend it on beating women...

The kid is young and could recover but nothing in his personal life or professional life shows me he will be a superstar. Not sure why the Cubs want to put up with all of this.

I wish I had an answer to that.

I think they've got themselves stuck now that there's new allegations/details after they tendered him. If he was going to be hard to off-load before this latest round of gossip, he'll be impossible to off-load now. I figured tendering him was to buy time for a trade, but it may have backfired.

If the Cubs release him, he'll be grabbed up in a hot-second, if they hold onto him for trade, it may be a while- or never.

I guess they think it is worth the risk cause the Cubs have him under contract till 2022 while they have a lot of other
dead money on the books

Can't be any more "dead" than having a starting shortstop who isn't allowed at the ballpark...

They will probably keep him till the fifth babymomma comes forward with allegations.

That's not all bad. At least he can't strike out with runners on or throw the ball away.

His off-field errors this season were far more costly- to both him and the team.
