Re: Reds Rumored to be Interested in Milton Bradley?
So I was reading through some old rotoworld updates on Milton Bradley and found this interesting bit from 2005:
After receiving permission from the Dodgers, Cubs manager Dusty Baker had lunch with Milton Bradley at the outfielder's home last month.
"We had a great conversation," Baker said. "I wanted to get a good reading on him, and we covered every issue."
Edit: Also found this from the same year, something I hadn't heard before and makes me a bit more leery of Bradley.
No charges have been filed, police have responded to the Redondo Beach home of Milton Bradley three times this summer on domestic violence calls.
There was one incident in which he allegedly choked his pregnant wife, bloodied her lip and hurled a cellular telephone into a wall. Bradley wouldn't answer questions after a reporter was sent to his home yesterday. ''You come here snooping around,'' he yelled from his upstairs balcony. ''Get off my property. Write that down. Get off my property.''
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
