    Re: Shut up Milton Bradley

    How ironic this was started by a Cardinals fan ;). I agree though... he needs to quit being a whiny little *****.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Shut up Milton Bradley

    Perhaps someone should tell Milton that the umps are graded pitch by pitch (supposedly) and that "retaliating" against him would probably hurt them more than they could ever hurt him.

    I'm wondering what the question was that prompted him to say something like that. Surely a hack writer from the Tribune wouldn't phrase a question in such a way that no matter what Milton says, it's guaranteed to be controversial. That would never happen.

    If he were a Cardinal and came out with this garbage, I would still tell him to SHUT THE HELL UP!

    He is a whiny little *****. He is only 18 for 96. I'm pretty sure the Umps aren't to blame for his 23 Strike Outs. Plus he still has 14 BBs.

    Never mind that he never said that, or even implied that in that article.

    Re: Shut up Milton Bradley

    "Unfortunately, I just think it's a lot of 'Oh, you did this to my colleague,' or 'We're going to get him any time we can," Bradley said, according to the Chicago Tribune. "As soon as he gets two strikes, we're going to call whatever and see what he does. Let's try to ruin Milton Bradley.'
    That answer is all on Bradley. There's no way a "hack writer" could single-handedly lead Bradley to say something this stupid. Right now Bradley looks like a has-been who cashed in on a good year least year. He could still turn it around, but he's on track to be the worst free agent acquisition in Cub history.

    Jock Jones? Sure a writer could - a question can be phrased in such a way that the answer is going to be controversial, no matter what that answer is. We have no idea what the question was, because Sully didn't include that in the article (no surprise).

    I don't think the media is out to get Bradley. He came to the Cubs with a repuatation, and it's up to him to change it. It's also up to him to recognize when/if he's being baited, and to walk away. There isn't anything in his contract that says he has to talk to reporters.

    Who is Jock Jones? Is he related to Jacque Jones?

    Yes, and a distant cousin of Korey Patterson.

    I think the Rock would tell us that it doesn't matter who Jock Jones is.

    I think everyone knew stuff like this would happen with Milton Bradley... Not much you can do now.
