I'm not sure you can compare Milton to those two though. Football is the ultimate team sport. Baseball is about as individulaistic a team sport as there is. I doubt Bruce is going to start popping up fastballs down the middle because Milton and Marty got into it the other night. Or Cueto's going to stop missing bats because that freakin' Milton guy didn't laugh at his joke.
If the Reds have some money to spend, they could do a lot worse than Milton Bradley. I have no problem "putting up" with ~140 OPS+ (his rough average over the last 3 years, something Dunn hasn't even managed during that same time span, though he was much healthier). The real question should be the contract length. I like the idea of 2 years with an option for a third. Seems that'd be just about right until we see if Frazier or Alonso (or whoever) could fill in on a more permanent basis.
