    I think the biggest reason is that no one trusts that he'll be able to stay on the field.

    teh Dusty may be able to earn a few bucks of his salary with a guy like Bradley. If teh Dusty has so-called success being a player's manager, let's test it out.

    Milton can flat rake, and his bat is precisely what this offense needs. If he calls Jeff Brantley a horse's you know what during his tenure here, then that's even more bang for the buck right there.

    Heck, I think I'd pay extra if he stormed up to give a certain poofy-haired announcer what for. Make it an incentive.

    Nah, Pujols would make too much money for some people.

I can look at a thread about acquiring a player, a potential trade, an actual acquisition, etc. and I can tell just by looking at the names of people who like a deal and who do not like a deal whether I'll likely like the deal. And that's without even knowing any of the players/terms of the deal.

    What would you rather have, a left fielder that sits in chairs in the clubhouse or one that throws them in the clubhouse?

    I choose whichever is more likely to motivate his teammates through a judicious use of choking.

    The less risk there is, the more money you pay.

    It's better than shuffling them on the deck.

    May I just say that this new "tag" feature is both pretty groovy and likely to become completely out of control.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Wait, so Puffy and I "relate".

    Now I'm bummed.

    Re: Reds Rumored to be Interested in Milton Bradley?

    Darryl Strawberry and Dwight Gooden weren't good clubhouse guys in 1986 and the Mets did all right that year. It doesn't matter to me whether he's a good guy, or whether or not the broadcaster's and his teammates like him. If he produces, I'm all for it. I'm not saying I'd go overboard with the contract, because there's obviously risk attached. But if Dusty dealt with Barry in San Fran, he can surely deal with Milton in Cincy.

    DUI shows immaturity and bad decisions.

    You've painted the Milton Bradley picture as him being immature and making bad decisions.

    Furcal's DUI seems like a pretty fair comparison to your Bradley picture, IMO.

    Highly doubtful. People don't get passed around like that if they are talented and injury prone. Seven organizations by the age of 31. That is ludicrous.
