Kris Bryant Blows His Ankle Out Catching Routine Pop Out

#Pray4Kris pic.twitter.com/KSWvb6QQXo — Red Line Radio (@RedLineRadio_) June 29, 2017 Well fuck me sideways. Kris Bryant is one of the 5 best players on the planet and this could NOT have come at a worse time. Like it’s been hard enough playing musical chairs with everyone else on this goddamn team. Bryzzo can only do so much. The real freaking out can wait until we get word back on how significant the injury is. General rules of thumbs (or however you pluralize that)… strain = okay… tear = fuck me. I want to get more information before I start...

Addison Russell And Domestic Abuse

Here’s a blog I never expected to write. Not in a million years. And at this point, this really shouldn’t be a surprise… Addy’s wife, Melisa, came out of the gate last night HOT with the social media fire flames burn of the MLB 2017 season:   Being free to be able to make your own choices for your own happiness beats being cheated on, lied to, & disrespected any day. #herestonewbeginnings #onlygetsbetterfromhere That’s not the kind of stuff you want to see from the emerging young superstar that’s assumed to quarterback the defense up the middle from now until...

Is The Bullpen Dancing Cool?

You tell me: https://www.redlineradioshow.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/asset_1800K-1.mp4 Hey, @alfonso_ribeiro, The Carlton Dance lives in the @cubs bullpen thanks to @CEdwardsSBS. pic.twitter.com/klOVjoXGMp — Shamus Toomey (@stoomey) June 7, 2017 Moving the bullpens under the bleachers was a no brainer. It was a matter of time before someone got seriously injured – most notably Kyle Schwarber – now that the team is worth a shit. And I’m ALLLL about minimizing injury risk to the core players. Again, total no brainer. And on the bright side for relievers, there’s no more sitting around amongst the peasant fans, baking in the sun and being ruthlessly subjected to...

Ian Happ Hits 2 Bombs, Gets Shelved For Two Games, Then Hits Another Bomb. WTF Joe.

https://www.redlineradioshow.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/asset_1800K.mp4 1. That’s awesome. Let’s get that out of the way. Great piece of hitting from a real pro’s pro’s hard-nosed baseball guy. We love it. 108mph is hard #FYI 2. I’m not trying to be salty. I’m really not. I just can’t wrap my head around Ian Happ hitting two bombs Sunday night against the cardinals and then sitting on Monday and Tuesday. Like we’re not talking about damage done in the second half of a September makeup doubleheader against some meat AAA farmhand in a meaningless game. We’re talking about primetime. We’re talking about the cardinals. We’re talking...

I Can F*ck With Eddie Butler

I’m currently sitting on my ass watching the Cubs mow through an underwhelming Miami Marlins team and I can’t help but think Eddie Butler aint too fuckin shabby. Sure, the 14 walks in 24 innings aren’t doing my opinion of him any favors. And neither is the .871 OPS against left handed hitters. But overall I like to think Eddie Butler is earning the right to later lose his starting spot and I find that remarkably encouraging. Stay with me here. Right now, no one really cares about Eddie Butler. No one’s losing sleep over whether or not he makes it throughout the...
