Bradley to the Tigers?

Postby CadensDad » Sat Jul 25, 2009 10:43 pm

Go this off Milton Bradley's Yahoo player profile.

The Tigers might be interested in trading for Bradley, Dave Kaplan of WGN-AM of Chicago reports.

Recommendation: The Tigers believe that Bradley would be better at designated hitter than as a right fielder. When asked late in the day on Saturday, Tigers' GM Dave Dombrowski denied any interest in Bradley. According to the rumor, if the two teams do the trade, the Cubs would most likely have to eat part of his contract that has two more years remaining on it. To say the least it has not worked out between Bradley and the Cubs so much so that Cubs' manager Lou Piniella benched him at one point. Coincidentally with this news, Bradley came off the bench and hit a pinch-hit home run against the Reds on Saturday.

Maybe Anderson could get traded like he asked for. But who knows

Sounds like there is almost no chance this is going to happen:

So this afternoon Steve Stone sends out a Tweet on his baseballstone@twitter account saying that the Tigers are interested in Cubs RF Milton Bradley. I hear from a baseball agent who says the same thing and then after Stone's post hits the internet and I put the rumor on my blog all hell breaks loose.

So let's review what I posted this afternoon. The headline of the post says "Can it be? Are the Tigers after Milton Bradley? The post talks about the rumor and ends this way: I will be working my baseball sources for more on this rumor but if it is indeed true the Cubs need to make that deal ASAP!

So from that post and Stone's Twitter everyone jumps to the conclusion that the deal is imminent. After talking with various people around the Cubs and Tigers we find out that the deal is simply just a rumor and is not going to happen. In fact, Stone even Tweeted from Detroit that Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski said he wouldn't want Bradley on his team.

So how did a rumor which happens all of the time take off so quickly? Perhaps because people are so desperate to see Bradley in another uniform they ran with a rumor that it turned out had no substance to it. Whatever the reason is it really doesn't matter. The Tigers aren't interested in trading for Milton Bradley and it appears he will be the Cubs RF for the forseeable future.

Tigers would be retarded to take on that salary.

The Cubs just took over first place. They're not sellers.

Getting rid of Bradley would be addition via subtraction. He has been awful and that contract is an anchor.

Not sure that's an accurate assessment. Getting rid of Bradley would allow them to use Fox more and Fuld more, along with getting rid of Bradley's empty millions.

The Tigers need to do something. Thames, C. Thomas, and Raburn can't protect Cabrera.

There is no denying that Milton excelled as a DH in Texas last year, but Leyland says WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN MILTON.
