Milton Bradley got killa swag hommes.

Trot did this a few years back, when he was playing for the Sox. He tried to get the ball back from the fan he flipped it to, as well.
Maybe it's something about right fielders just getting bored to tears out there. I used to dig holes in the outfield with my cleats in little league too, so I can totally relate. :-D.

BALCO All-Stars wrote:Bradley was a terrible signing...especially when the Cubs main objective was to get left handed and there were two other LH options out there (Ibanez and Abreu). Who knew that Ibanez would've played like he has, but geez, Abreu was signed for a ONE YEAR $5 MM deal AFTER Bradley was signed for 3 yr/$30 MM. Even if Abreu didn't work out like Bradley hasn't so far, it's only one year and not a lot of money...bad move Hendry.

And speaking of Hendry moves, getting rid of DeRosa to clear some space to make room for a move that didn't happen (i.e. get Peavy)...another great move...sorry, tangent...this thread is about Bradley.


Don't fprget that Adam Dunn practically BEGGED the Cubs to sign him. I think they didn't citing his poor OF defense. Ironic.

lol 0.36....booooooooooooo.........boooooooooooooo

Not that it should matter but Cubbies scoreboard is not working properly at the moment so maybe that didn't help. I read that it wasn't showing how many outs there were during than inning.

Yeah - Trot Nixon and Larry Walker both threw the ball in the stands with one out. But neither did it after making a catch with nearly the same panache as Milton Bradley did. What a tool.

I'm pretty sure Sosa had a similar incident when he was with the cubs and flipped a ball into the stands and then blamed the scoreboard for showing the wrong number of outs. :-b

wasn't it last year a left fielder handed the ball to a fan, ran back over and took it back? because it's Bradley though everybody goes nuts. at least he didn't peg anybody in the chest with it. watch, he will start to hit and Cubbie fans will adore him because he's crazy (human).
