Oh come on now, that's blowing things out of proportion. Everyone in Texas loved the guy, he's not leaving there because they think he's a cancer. He threw a water bottle down on the warning track at the fan, but he didn't pull a Ron Artest and jump over the wall. He's yelled at umps, quite loudly, but who hasn't? He's went a little overboard, yes, but so did Pete Rose back in the day. And one time he went up to the broadcast booth to confront an announcer about a comment. We don't know what he would have done if he had reached him. It was a VERY unfair comment for the announcer to make, a blind shot out of nowhere. Bradley had turned it around in Texas to a certain extent, and was legitimately hurt that someone brought up the "bad" Milton image. He's a guy that cares, a guy that has strived to improve on the field and off, and I'd be willing to take a flier on him, especially in this clubhouse.
