Not long after saying that there was “no chance” that Milton Bradley would return to Texas, MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan changes his tune:
A month ago, it seemed impossible that the Rangers would bring back Bradley. Now there seems some hemming and hawing. The Rangers know that the Cubs are eager to unload Bradley, who has two years and $20 million left on his contract. They know there is a possibility the Cubs could pick up a sizable portion of that contract, a must if the Rangers are going to get involved.
To be honest, the quasi “do over” nature of a deal that sends Bradley back to Texas is probably the best thing that could possibly happen. Both for him and for baseball, because the last thing we need next summer is another battery of Bradley-isn’t-fitting-in stories.
