    I'm with Cyclone. Bradley is exactly the kind of player who would seemingly be a good fit with Dusty's personality type and managerial approach. And they could use his bat. 2 years, 18 million, I would be okay with that kind of offer and he absolutely would fill a need...

    I'm sorry as well, but there are major differences here. This guy has went after fans, umps and announcers. If Furcal had 5 DUIs, then I would agree. But one DUI is nowhere near what this travesy has rung up in his career.

    I would be very happy with this.

    Yes multiple as in 2.

    How many times do you think he didn't get caught?

    Guy has 2 DUI's and we're "stretching it" by calling it a character issue?

    Really?

    Furcal is lucky he didn't kill anyone.

    Oh come on now, that's blowing things out of proportion. Everyone in Texas loved the guy, he's not leaving there because they think he's a cancer. He threw a water bottle down on the warning track at the fan, but he didn't pull a Ron Artest and jump over the wall. He's yelled at umps, quite loudly, but who hasn't? He's went a little overboard, yes, but so did Pete Rose back in the day. And one time he went up to the broadcast booth to confront an announcer about a comment. We don't know what he would have done if he had reached him. It was a VERY unfair comment for the announcer to make, a blind shot out of nowhere. Bradley had turned it around in Texas to a certain extent, and was legitimately hurt that someone brought up the "bad" Milton image. He's a guy that cares, a guy that has strived to improve on the field and off, and I'd be willing to take a flier on him, especially in this clubhouse.

    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.
    Way too much of a pattern with this guy. Not what they need.

    He would be the chalk if they posted odds on the instigator in the next Artest melee.

    You are correct in calling it a character issue and you are even more correct in saying he is lucky he didn't kill anyone. But those issues don't impact a team like Bradley's sideshow would.

    He will be on his 7th team in 10ish years.

    I don't think they dedicated a monument to him in each city upon his departure.

    Milton Bradley is actually a very thoughtful, intelligent, caring and well spoken man.

    He has anger issues, but he's bright enough to understand that it's something he needs to work on, and by all accounts has made a genuine effort to do so.

    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.
