Maybe overhyped, but the talent is there.
is buying a blue for 185 a smart move?

If it is centered and not too streaky then yes, and if you don't buy it let me know where I can.

Kind of ironic that cubs4life didn't think that he was good before being traded to the cubs.

His cards are already priced for expected output in the majors.

No, which is why I said "ironic" not "wishy-washy".

Since my last post on here I ended up buying a few base and a ref auto and now wish I would have bought more. I really think the kid is legit and no question the talent will play up at Wrigley.

I collected him as an A's fan and have around 10 autos of him, graded color, etc. I won't be holding them now that he is a Cub

if it's possible - yes. I thought the thing that hindered Russell the most was that he on the A's.
