    Milton Bradley, baseball's self-described bad guy, has asked his Seattle Mariners for help in dealing with what manager Don Wakamatsu says is "emotional stress" from personal issues.

    Wakamatsu and general manager Jack Zduriencik said Wednesday that their fiery slugger is out indefinitely until he receives an outside assessment and a plan to address his issues.

    Sounds like Bradley is dealing with some severe mental health issues. As someone who deals with those who suffer from mental illness on a daily basis, I hope that he can find peace someday. Some time off from the game may be the best thing to ever happened to Milton Bradley.

    I wouldn't bet against it. Sounds a lot like Alex Johnson who was diagnosed with severe reactive depression.

    From rotoworld

    According to King 5 Sports in Seattle, Milton Bradley was arrested on a felony in Los Angeles County.

    We're still awaiting more details, but one would think this would finally be enough to void the rest of his contract. The troubled Bradley is still owed $12 million for the 2011 season. Stay tuned for more information as it is made available. Jan. 18 - 9:07 pm et

    Whoever thought getting Jose Silva and his awful contract would mean a team got by far the better end of a trade?

    However, the Cubs actually got one right for a change. Silva's not good, but it was still a good trade for them.

    Really? Isn't that Los Angeles County place where someone named OJ got away with double murder?

    I am sure Milton can afford his own dream team. And he hasn't killed anyone... just threatened to hurt/kill. Get the right lawyer and get the trial moved to a location where the jury best suits you. Enough said.

    Calling Judge Ito!

    The prospect of jail time is his problem. I was only thinking of when he might play baseball again. This might be enough for Seattle to void the rest of his contract. And I'm not sold that a player with his baggage would be in high demand. So, yeah I think he'll have a break from baseball for awhile.

    Doesn't appear that the therapy he had last summer took.

    It didn't work out too bad for the Reds either. They won two of three against him. Only four teams, three of which were in the NL West, had more success against him than the Reds in 2010.

    The problem with Milton is he's not putting up the numbers he once did. You can put up with a felon if he OPSs enough

    If that were true he wouldn't be on his 8th team by the age of 32.

    My theory supports the fact that he's on his 8th team. Simply put, his numbers don't justify the baggage he brings. So what's not true?

    Bradley's one of those players that look like a good fit if he hasn't played for your team until he actually does. Kyle Farnsworth is another of those players.

    I was going off of this:

    The problem with Milton is he's not putting up the numbers he once did. You can put up with a felon if he OPSs enough
    What I was saying was that he was getting shipped around even when he was putting up the numbers that he once did.
