What they're tweeting about the Milton Bradley deal

Dec 18, 2009, 1:20 PM EDT

I usually wait for the blogs to start updating before I’ll write a “What they’re saying about . . .” post, but this Milton Bradley business has brought out everyone’s inner-Henny Youngman, and the one-liners are flying.  A sampling:

Jesse Spector: “Cubs getting rid of a guy because he’s a pain in the ass. Mariners getting rid of a guy because he sucks. Advantage, M’s.”

Mike Meech: When Milton Bradley “accidentally” stabs Felix Hernandez in abdomen, youse aren’t gonna think this Jack Z. fella is so smart.

Dave Brown: “Carlos Silva for
Milton Bradley might be the global thermonuclear war of trades. There
are only survivors. And the dead are to envied.

Jonah Keri: “M’s unloaded the bloated, $25 mil corpse of Carlos Silva in Bradley trade. I’d acquire Stalin if it meant ditching Silva.”

Bob Elliott: “Jack Z was having such a great walking-on-water winter … and then he ventured into the risky, thin ice section of the FA lake”

Jonah Keri again“Jack Z is Seattle’s most fruitful commodity since Shawn Kemp.

    I never met Milton, so leave me out of this.

    Jonah Keri must be invoking Casey Stengel, who when asked if he thought Roger Maris could break Ruth’s home run record replied, “Why not? He’s got more power than Staleen.”
    Just a cocktail party small talk tidbit for yez.

    Just wait until Bradley butts heads with Sweet Lou and/or Carlos Zambrano…

    There goes the neighborhood. Does the value of every team in the AL West go down or just Seattle’s?
