The Royals called off the Milton Bradley deal with the A's after learning that the outfielder suffered an oblique strain in his final game with the club on Tuesday.
The A's reportedly did not know of the injury when they designated Bradley for assignment on Thursday. "The A's were not at fault," Royals GM Dayton Moore said. Perhaps Bradley didn't want to play for the Royals so he made up the injury? If he becomes a free agent, he'll be able to choose his team, something he might find preferable. The Royals agreed to give up Leo Nunez and pay the remainder of Bradley's $4 million salary before the trade fell through.


Making up injuries? If so what a scumbag. :P :t


so glad

What kind of problems did Milton Bradley have in Oakland? I hadn't heard of any problems.

If he ever gets healthy and lands somewhere that gives him consistent playing time, he is probably the best thing on the waiver wire in most leagues.

I think the Loaiza/Perry confrontation was the only one Milton had in Oakland. I guess there is some upside to the guy spending half the time on the DL, it gives him less time to cause controversy.

Was that when Bradley accidentally spilled something and Loaiza got pissed? That was funny.

He's never hit over 20 HR's in a season, he's hit over .300 once, and he's always injured. So I'd have to dispute that he's the best thing available on the wire in most leagues. Fantasy-wise, players of Bradley's caliber are a dime a dozen.

Really? I qualified "when healthy" and when healthy Bradley produces at .290 20/20. You must play in a 6 team league if there are guys like that are a dime a dozen on the WW. He is one of the biggest injury risk, but if he is healthy he is stellar.

How can you say he's a 20/20 guy when he never reach either 20HR or 20SB even when he's healthy over a whole year in his prime?

Yeah I've never bought the Milton hype. This is meaningless to me.
