The Chicago Cubs made a historic run at their first World Championship since 1908. The team ultimately fell short of their goal, but the future of this team is tremendous. To have a solid nucleus of talent like the Cubs have is unheard of in this day and age of baseball. Addison Russell, Kyle Schwarber, […]
Addison Russell Position: Shortstop/Second Base 2015 Stats: .242/.307/.389, .252 TAv, 1.57 WARP Year in Review: As he laced a flyball off the base of the left-field wall, made his way around second, found that extra gear, and sprung himself airborne as he dove into third base, Addison Russell could have hardly imagined it would be […]
This year is looking like the Cubs’ best shot at a World Series title since Steve Bartman trampled on the souls of the entire city of Chicago in 2003. But now, they’re going to have to make it through at least the next round of the postseason without one of their key young talents. On...Read More

Most Major League Baseball fans are familiar with Addison Russell. The Oakland A’s selected Russell in the first round of the 2012 draft, and he became one of the best prospects in all of baseball before his trade to the Chicago Cubs for Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel at the trade deadline last season.

The MLB trade deadline of July 31st is rapidly approaching, and with the New York Mets holding steady in second place of the NL East, they need to make a few moves before time runs out. The Mets could certainly use a relief pitcher or two, but in order to boost their chances of playing baseball in October, they need to find a replacement for shortstop Wilmer Flores. His inconsistencies...
Just as we were all finally getting over our Kris Bryant Day hangovers, the Cubs gave us something else to celebrate. As you’ve likely heard by now, the Cubs summoned Addison Russell to the major leagues yesterday. He started at second base last night, and went 0-5 in his big league debut. Russell’s promotion came as […]

With the service time shenanigans out of the way, it was abundantly clear that Bryant that he was their best third baseman, so they summoned him from Iowa to help their team win. Today, the Cubs […]

The Oakland A’s have been having a great season. They are leading the American League West by two and a half games and currently have the third best record in baseball. Even though the Athletics seem like a solid team now, they are notorious for switching things up mid-way through the season. So who are some of the top prospects that could make an impact this year in the major...
