    Except if Furcal gets caught again, he'll be doing alot more time then just a month.

    I would think that would impact a team.

    We should all have our foibles on display for millions of people to cast stones at us.

    Let's see how we'd like it.

    All our Bradley debates could be for naught given that the Cubs are apparently heavily persuing him and I would think he'd choose Chicago over Cincinnati.

That's an amazing statement."

    If your Parents named you Milton when your last name was Bradley, wouldn't you have an attitude too?

    Are you trying to start a RIOT on Redszone with such statements?!? There are people on here who have stats about how much a player perspires in fluid ounces per game and how that affects their offense. And you make THAT statement!

    He can be as angry as he wants for all I care. I just think he should do it somewhere else.

    I really don't feel bad for him at all.

    I guess I'm just struggling to understand your agenda against Milton Bradley.

    Regardless of Bradley's "character issues", as you've labeled them, Dude can rake. The Reds need dudes that can rake.

    Is there something you're not telling us about Milton Bradley in regards to your vendetta against him?

    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.''
