    Looking at his mentality and his numbers, he is nowhere near worth it. Frankly, I don't see the productivity being anywhere near worth it, talent-wise, he looks only slightly above middle of the road. But, throw in his personality, and I find him to be completely worthless. Add in his age and contract, and he becomes a huge negative.

    Agreed. If we're looking for "pop" that is reliable, we're going to have to pay for it. Something that is not understood by this front office. We'd rather hope for McDonald to "come around." Drives me nuts.

    Pretty sure 1.3 wins of production is worth less than what he was paid this year. The guy just can't stay on the field enough to justify the money/headache. We need a shortstop ALOT more than this guy.

    His production is vastly overrated. He isn't a lock to produce anything except non-game related headline stories.

    Anyone with a modicum of sense could see a train wreck was coming. I guess that must rule out the Cubs GM.

    without a doubt ... albeit for different reasons.

    Re: The Milton Bradley Thread

    How about this hypothetical?

    Reds deal Cordero, Taveras, Lincoln

    Cubs deal $2 million, Bradley and Zambrano

    Takers?

    I would in a heartbeat.

    C. Trent actually thinks the Taveras signing was better than the Bradley signing.

    * Oh, Milton Bradley. Seriously, that signing makes the Willy Taveras signing look good.

    Spencer Pratt, with no hesitation.

    He's right. Bradley cost the Cubs 5X more money than WT cost the Reds.

    No thank you. I want no part of Bradley or Zambrano, let alone what we would owe them. Those two players are a huge reason the Cubs stink right now. They're not reliable, and I doubt they'd be any more reliable in Cincy.

    Re: The Milton Bradley Thread

    fwiw, I would guess that there's zero chance that Walt would take a chance on Bradley at this point. The Reds chances of improving are too precarious. But someone will, and I wouldn't bet against that team ending up with a year's worth of good production.

    I find myself wondering what type of manager could handle him best, seeing that Lou couldn't make a go at it (that should have been predictable--Lou seems to have high standards.) Dusty handles players pretty well, maybe he would do a good job with MB. If so, we should immediately ship him off to whoever signs him, for the good of all involved. :
