On a side note the team should fine MB for being out of shape. If you have seen the video you would have seen how little it took to blow out his fat knee. This tub-o-lard is a pro athlete? Time to hang em up Milton and give Vince McMahon a call.
Nothing justifies attacking an ump. Bradley claims he wasn't attacking him -- check the post-game interview. Who knows if it is true, but my guess is he was doing exactly what managers do when they want to be heard by an ump -- they yell as loud as they can and as close as they can to the face of the ump without touching him. Is that an attack? Nope. I also give credit for Milt calling time, touching the bag, and then speaking to the ump.
And, nothing justifies an ump initiating and personally insulting any player (regardless of their history).
In fact, nothing justifies an ump baiting a player by initiating an antagonistic conversation with him while the game is in progress -- I don't care WHAT is said... the ump should shut up and do his job, or call time and speak to the player if he feels it is necessary.
So, give me a freakin break with Milt's history. Look at this single incident at face value.
