In the off-season last year, experts were stating that the Tigers could reach 1,000 runs for the season and have one of the most potent offenses in MLB history. The core of the Tigers team hasn't changed much since then. And the Cubs are the "overrated" team?


I have not spoken one word about the Detroit Tigers anywhere on this thread. You know nothing about my opinions of the team, or whether or not I feel the Cubs are a better or worse team than them. Please stop bringing them up.


Uh, that was the first time I had brought them up. I was just pointing out by your logic that the Tigers are pretty much equally crappy and overrated. That was all.


Sorry, you are the second person to bring them up for some reason. And by your logic, yes, you are correct. I am glad you realize that the Cubs are crappy and overrated and shouldn't blame practically all their troubles on one emotionally volatile player that they made a conscious decision to sign in the off-season.

At least they're not paying him as much annually as the Tigers are Magglio Ordonez. ;-)

I wonder if the Cubs are desperate (or stupid) enough to trade Milton Bradley for Vernon Wells?

hmmmm....

MILWAUKEE -- Suspended Cubs outfielder Milton Bradley apologized Wednesday for behavior that led to general manager Jim Hendry's decision to banish him for the rest of the season.

"I chose Chicago as a free agent because I wanted to be part of finally bringing a championship to the Cubs' fans. I expected to have a great season and I am deeply disappointed by my performance and the team's struggles," said Bradley, who signed a $30 million, three-year contract in the offseason.

But Bradley struggled and was booed loudly at Wrigley Field while hitting .257 with 12 homers and 40 RBI, and the Cubs started Wednesday 7½ games out of the NL wild-card race at 78-72 after winning 97 games last season. Bradley said his frustration and disappointment caused him to act in a way he regrets.

"I wish that I handled certain things different and I apologize for those things that did not work out for the better," he said in a statement. "The air has been cleared, and we all want to move on and look forward to better days."

Cubs manager Lou Piniella said he appreciated Bradley's comments.

"I'm happy to see that he issued the statement and apologized," said Piniella, who clashed with Bradley several times this season. "You know -- put that behind us and we just go forward."

Hendry wouldn't say before the Cubs took on the Milwaukee Brewers whether the switch-hitting outfielder will return next year.

"We'll worry about next season when this season is over," Hendry said. "We've got the rest of the season to play and we're going to finish it up."

The Cubs suspended Bradley with pay for the rest of the season on Sunday after a series of actions that Hendry declined to specify. A day earlier, Bradley said in a newspaper interview that he saw why the Cubs' organization hadn't won in 100 years and that the team didn't have a "positive environment."

The mood of the clubhouse in Milwaukee has been upbeat, and the Cubs won three in a row heading into Wednesday's action. Hendry said he hasn't spoken to Bradley, only with his agent, Seth Levinson.

When might Bradley and Hendry talk directly?

"No idea," Hendry said. "Nothing to talk about now. He's home for the rest of the year."

Yeah, I think it's safe to say Maggz is off the juice now. Too bad for fantasy owners.

Why is the GM going to ESPN and making quotes about it then? He's obviously trying to deflect the attention off of his overrated and crappy team in order to make it look like Bradley was the major reason the Cubs aren't contending this year. Even if that's not the case, that's the perception already building in the MSM and it's frankly ridiculous.


You have no idea what you talkin about. Noone blamed the losing on Bradley, despite playing the outfield like a lazy @#$% all year.
But you are obviously a Cubs hater.
And they have every right suspending Bradley. That comment was outrageous. Anyone, who talks to the media like that, has no place in pro sports. Period.

BTW that "overrated and crappy team" won the NL Central in 2007 and 2008 dude.


I'm actually not a Cubs hater, just not a fan of people or organizations that need scapegoats when things don't go their way. Also, if you notice, I stated "to make it look like" and "Even if that's not the case" to show that the perception exists because of how this situation has been covered in the MSM......you hear it on sports radio every day and see it plenty enough on ESPN that Milton Bradley completely ruined the chemistry of this team and blah blah blah. It's being said without being said explicitly.

Also....is it 2007 or 2008?


It is basically the same team as last year. Only minor changes have been made.

I did not watch ESPN or heard it on sports radio, so I didn't know that Hendry or Piniella said that Bradley ruined the chemistry of the team and blah blah. Obviously, if they did, that was stupid. If some stupid sportswriters came up with it, then it is idiotic.

You are the only one who thinks that.
Theres no way that he is responsible for those injuries, and long slumps that crippled the Cubs. He is only responsible for his own bad performance and lack of effort.
