    Congratulations Cubs Fans

    Your good buddy Milton Bradley has now been healthy long enough and has played in enough games that his $12 million option for 2011 is now vested!

    He can't keep sucking like this for the entire contract, can he?

    Re: Congratulations Cubs Fans

    I wish he would just bat RH full time. Which is funny because we got him to be our LH power hitter. But if you look, MB is hitting only .200 with an OPS of .688 while as a RH batter he is hitting .343 with an OPS of .883. Its just strange.

    If he listens and uses what Lou is teaching him, I expect a turn around so I am not too worried about him. Maybe its because I have already given up on him. Just a terrible year from an average player that doesn't deserve the contract he got.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    I don't consider him an average hitter. He has had some great years at the plate.

    You can't honestly say that. Its only been one half of the first year for his 3 year contract. How do you know he isn't going to tear it up the rest of his contract? You don't.

    +1

    The problem is when people expect him to be something he's not. He's not a 30+ home run guy so if you expect him to be a power hitter, you're expecting too much. He's a 20-25 HR .300-.330 hitter who plays average defense when healthy.

    He's far from being the most overpaid player on this team, that's for sure. And the contract isn't long enough to hurt the organizations future.

    little over half way into the first year of the deal and already calling it a bad investment? Seems a little early too me.

    Oops, sorry. I misread the initial post. I thought a 4th year became guaranteed because of his number of games played.
