With what us baseball players do for a living can never be taken for granted. With that being said family comes before everything!— Anthony Rizzo (@ARizzo44) March 17, 2016
* Where's Robin?
* If By Exclusive You Mean That Adam Eaton Gave You Some Bullshit Quotes:
* LaRoche issues a statement. The statement could not be reached for comment.

* He had his own locker!
BREAKING: 13-year-old had his own locker in the #WhiteSox clubhouse last year and nobody thought it was weird.— Beachwood Reporter (@BeachwoodReport) March 18, 2016
@BeachwoodReport In fact, the Tribune wrote a whole fawning piece about it last year and ... nothing.— Geoff Dankert (@GeoffNews) March 18, 2016
19:19: We Will Miss Martellus Bennett.
* ESPN: Bears Trade Bennett To Patriots.
* What Bennett told the New England media:
"I don't think it didn't work out in Chicago," he said. "I thought I played very well in Chicago. I put up great numbers, did some great things, made my first Pro Bowl there. I mean, statistically, I thought it was a great job."
Asked if the Bears believed he didn't fit into their plans, Bennett said, "You'd have to ask them.
"We were cool. I think it's just time for change. I don't take it personal. I'm all about the future so I'm a progressive person.''

People equating their job with being in big league clubhouse missing the point. It's not the real world. Has its own rules/vibe.— Len Kasper (@LenKasper) March 17, 2016
Consensus in Cubs locker room re LaRoche is basically players should have been allowed to police the situation— Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) March 17, 2016
For reasons already articulated by Coffman at this juncture of the podcast, this is just a really unworkable answer; who gets to do the policing and what do those in the minority do if they object? Must everyone live under Chris Sale's rules? There has to be an organizational policy. Period.
