Joe Maddon calls out Addison Russell after mistake-filled performance

Addison Russell

Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon is not known for calling out his players publicly, but he didn’t resist after Addison Russell’s performance on Saturday.

The Cubs shortstop made a litany of mistakes, including three baserunning errors and a mistake in the field.

That was too much for Maddon to take. He said after the Cubs’ 6-5 win that Russell “has to” sort the mistakes out.

Russell has not been a favorite of Cub fans this season for both his performance and his off-field transgressions, and made things even worse for himself by criticizing his critics before ultimately backing down. Maddon, for one, certainly seems to be tiring of the on-field mistakes.
