He's gotten more then 415 at bats in a season one time and he's north of 30, no thanks.
There's a reason why this guy is going on his 7th franchise by the age of 31.
Add in the injury risk and he shouldn't even be on the board.

I wanted him last year when he was cheaper. Now, with his cost significantly higher (plus his attitude problems), I'm not so sure.
"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."
The injury concerns are an issue, but at some point this team has to take a risk. Give me his 400 AB's and crappy attitude any day of the week over some of the other alternative's. The guy can hit. We need hitter's. Match made in heaven as far as I'm concerned.

I have two fears about Bradley. One his reputation, fair or not. Second is his durability.
However, it would be kind of cool to have Milton Bradley play the same position Yatzee once played.
