5@5: Did Bears do enough to punish Kyle Long?

Best of 670 The Score
Monday, August 19th
Mike Mulligan and Tom Thayer held the daily 5 at 5 segment, which began with a discussion about the Cubs' series win against the Pirates over the weekend to finish 4-6 on their 10-game road trip. Was the trip successful? Do the last two games and players returning from injury erase the bullpen woes of last week? The guys then discussed what infielder Addison Russell's return to the Cubs' roster and outfielder Albert Almora Jr.'s demotion suggest about the futures of the two players. The morning crew also discussed the timing of the Bears' decision to waive kicker Elliott Fry and what it means for kicker Eddy Pineiro moving forward before debating whether Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has more value following the uneven performances of backups Chase Daniel and Tyler Bray in a preseason loss to the Giants on Friday. Finally, the guys discussed whether the Bears did enough to punish guard Kyle Long for his instigating role in fighting rookie defensive lineman Jalen Dalton during a scrimmage last Wednesday. Did the team seriously debate cutting Long after that incident? (8/19/19)
