    Unless his craziness makes his teammates play worse, I'll take him.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    No thanks. Guys like this can be more trouble then they are worth in the clubhouse.

    I dumped him off my FL team pretty quick.

    Well, that was my take before the season. I think Milton's problem is his craziness makes him play worse, much worse.

    WOW, He must be a real pain in the butt if he went as far to cause trouble in your FL teams clubhouse.

    He started off on the DL, and there was uncertainly as to when he was coming off. Then when he did, he started miserably.

    I'm an impatient FL manager. I had other (better) options. :

    I always thougth that. Give me a bunch of a holes who are great players and I will gladly take them over choir boys. However, Bradley seems like he can't get out of his own way. While no ump will ever admit to it I would imagine that Bradley never gets the benefit of the doubt.

    I agree with that sentiment, team chemistry is waaaaaay overrated.

    However, accusing the umps of being against you is something that can adversely affect the whole team. At the very least, you will not be getting the benefit of any close calls with him on the team.

    There's crazy and then there's just plain stupid.

    The guy is on his 7th organization in 10 seasons and hasn't played for the same team for more than 3 years. He also played for GMs such as Beane, DePodesta and Shapiro in that time span.

    I think that speaks for itself.

    You know what trainwrecks say to each other about weird people?

    "Wow, that guy sure is a Milton Bradley."

    Whether or not chemistry is overrated, I wouldn't like him having the opportunity to influence our young players with his antics and attitude.

    Re: The Milton Bradley Thread

    I was just watching Piniella's press conference after the Cubs/Sox game and Lou said that he told Bradley to take off his uniform and go home during the game after he apparently destroyed a water cooler and threw his helmet. He said that this has been a common occurrence with Bradley and he is tired of it. Piniella also said that he followed him up to the clubhouse and they exchanged some words.

    You could tell by Piniella's tone that he is about done with this guy. He looked completely disgusted.

    Wow, Piniella and Bradley not getting along? Whodathunkit? Probably the two hardest head guys in the game. I would love to see this play out over three years.

    This might make the other Milton (Eric) contract look like a bargain.

    I wonder which signing Lou liked better, the Fukodome signing or the Bradley signing?

    I want to know why Lou picked Bradley to make an example out of when he's like the 3rd Cub to do that.
