Quote of the Day: Milton Bradley

Mar 28, 2010, 2:10 PM EST

Milton Bradley, awarded with the Mariners’ cleanup job this weekend according to the Associated Press, had this to say to the Chicago media before Sunday’s Cactus League game against the Cubs when asked for a short chat:

“No chance. Beat it,” Bradley told the Chicago Tribune. “You guys ran me out of town. Never again. Peace.”

Let’s get this straight: Does Bradley blame last year’s offensive struggles and eventual season-ending suspension on the fans at Wrigley Field, the beat writers whose job it is to cover the team and its players, or just the entire city of Chicago?  Some consistency would be nice, Milton.

    He’s Milton Bradley, people. Nuff said.

    It’s a sad day to be a Mariners fan when Milton Bradley is your cleanup hitter. It’s insane how many “baseball people” are saying Seattle is “one of the most improved”. What are they smoking? This guy is nothing but a cancer. I give this a couple months before he has another “outburst” and is either suspended or sulking on the bench. Bradley needs a resident psychologist on call with a syringe and a straight jacket for the safety of everyone around him.

    Psycho Therapy Milton, think about it. Do you ever wonder why the world is wrong and your right. Think about anger management classes, they might do you a world of good. If you fail , I think prison would be your best bet.You would be in your element.

    He’s super consistent Drew. Everyone and everything he blames has one thing in common: it is not Milton Bradley.

    Right you are, scatterbrain.

    If the reporters were white, then he is being consistent.

    Actually, dude’s smart for not talking to the Chicago media. Nothing good can come from it. Some kind of issue is inevitable with Bradley, but no sense walking into trouble.

    This from a guy who got ejected from 2 spring training games? As a Cubs fan I would rather have Silva go 0-10 with a 9.99 ERA than Bradley polluting my clubhouse. Good luck with him Seattle.

  9. Twoodard - Mar 28, 2010 at 5:46 PM

    And that BParker is why we in Seattle say Cub’s fans are retarded.

    Better grammar would make your insult more credible.. I mean, you’re the one calling other people retarded.

  11. NoStars - Mar 28, 2010 at 7:23 PM

    0-10 w/ a 9.99 ERA is what your gonna get btw. Also, don’t be surprised if Silva becomes a bit of a cancer to the clubhouse, too, just like when he openly criticized Ichiro for not being a better leadoff hitter and taking more pitches.

    Milton Bradley used to play for Texas.. he had his ups and downs but when he was hot, he was hot and could hit the ball well

    Obviously from the question you’re a Milton hater. Everyone is against this guy. He plays hard and yet is surrounded by hateful media, racist fans and an entire city whose sole goal is to destroy Milton’s soul. But he is strong and had the good sense to plan an exit strategy last year. And his best PR comes from his mom. Let’s see…your last name is Silva…same as the pitcher (?) that was traded to the Cubs for Milton. So you MUST be one of the millions conspiring to crush the will of the loving, free spirited and talented Mr. Bradley. You should be ashamed. But should also know that your name is already etched in Milton’s list of people who have slighted him. And know that he will track every last one of you down. As Milton, it’s not just his right, it’s his destiny. Long may HRH Milton reign!!

    “He plays hard and yet is surrounded by hateful media, racist fans and an entire city whose sole goal is to destroy Milton’s soul.”
    Really? You mean in the entire city of Chicago, there is nothing else to do? What a boring city.

  15. Chad - Mar 29, 2010 at 12:25 AM

    I am a Cubs fan and don’t hate Bradley. It was a bad situation for both. Chicago is a tough place to play, with Bradley’s past issues it was foolish to bring him to Chicago, especially after a 96 win campaign in 08 with expecations so high. Hendry should have kept DeRosa and passed on Bradley. With that said I live in Washington State and follow the Mariners, I think the Bradley for Silva trade will be great for both teams. Both players may have jsut needed a change of scenery.

  16. MVD - Mar 29, 2010 at 4:17 AM

    Nope, its the Cubs fault. And the reporters. And the fans. Because, yes, it is Chicago.

  17. Shely - Mar 29, 2010 at 9:11 AM

    BUT, what do momma say?

  18. willmose - Mar 29, 2010 at 9:15 AM

    Of course it is the Cubs fault. How could be otherwise? One hundred plus years of bad decisions by the Cubs. Milton is just another in a long line.

  19. Tired - Mar 29, 2010 at 9:55 AM

    Dude, please. Bob’s entry wasn’t even subtle sarcasm–it was over the top, in your face sarcasm. C’mon.

    “Let’s get this straight: Does Bradley blame last year’s offensive struggles and eventual season-ending suspension on the fans at Wrigley Field, the beat writers whose job it is to cover the team and its players, or just the entire city of Chicago? Some consistency would be nice, Milton.”
    Drew, Drew, Drew. Actually from that article he just said the Chicago media ran him out of town. I never heard him blame his performance on anyone. C’mon Drew, you’re really reaching here, and hoping to feed off the obvious dislike of this guy. That’s not really fair is it?
