was he? to me, it looked like he was yelling in laird face and not really keeping his cool.
although, i generally dont think milton bradley is all that bad of a dude.
Well, it's well known that Bradley is an emotional guy on the field and usually he does something that utilizes that emotion poorly. However, looking at the clip it appeared that Laird was going to keep the tussle going after he reacted to something someone said. Bradley, instead of teaming up with Laird and going after whoever, opted to pick him up and give Laird the verbal business to go cool off. For a guy that tends to fly off the handle he chose to do so against his own teammate to keep him in line. If anything, Bradley prevented Laird from possibly getting a bigger suspension than he might have if he went after the guy. I think that's a team first attitude.
Well anyway, a major tangent. Some punchless team should pick up Sexson as a bench bat.
