Re: Milton Bradley anyone?

Burrell, has almost identical stats as Bradley, and wouldn't cost that much more ($2M a year more).

Dye has just as good of numbers and would cost the same in $$$, but more in players.
Yes, if the option is between Bradley and Hopper or Taveras or Patterson, then the answer is clear, but there are just as good of options out there that don't have the extreme baggage that Bradley has.
That in particular is who I am referring to. It has been debated ad nauseum, esp in the ORG.
I agree, I'd take Burrell over Bradley myself - in fact that was my choice in the poll - but I'd have Bradley a close 2nd, and a HUGE distance away from Rivera, who for some reason, is leading that poll by a huge margin, 2 to one over Bradley.
I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008
Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
