The 2004 Cubs won 89 games, and you are comparing this team to that team? Besides, the 2004 team was plenty likable. They were 1-1/2 games up in the wild card on Sept. 24th, until the very final week of the season where they lost 7 out of 9 games and were eliminated from the playoffs. This year's team will be eliminated much earlier than that
The 2004 team was completely unlikable. Oddly, I thought this thread was going to be about the make up of the team though, which would be fairly apt. Great starting pitching, good line-up (this year is much better though) without a true leadoff guy, and an unreliable bullpen. I just figured it would talk about the team failing at the end because of the BP eventually collapsing.

You know regarding Russell. It takes bravery to accept your short comings and still go out there regardless of the reaction.

He could have been a typical coward and hid in the closet. Not facing what he did and trying to proven to himself and others that he can change and evolve from previous mistakes in life.

I prefer to call them battle wounds. Most of us are tattered with the invisible ones.

What he is doing is actually pretty brave and shows strength of character.

Stop trying to belittle him ok. It shows a lack of the same.
I haven't followed everything he's said but from the most recent quote I saw it appears to me that he has taken no accountability for his abuse. None at all. IDGAF about "earning the respect of the fans." How about saying I was a dick to my wife, I need to grow up and be a man, I need to model being an equal partner? That might matter to me.

He doesn't need to apologize to the fans for a damn thing. He does need to apologize to the woman he abused.
