Rockies met with Milton Bradley’s representatives

Last we heard of Milton Bradley, he was being accused of threatening to kill his wife and then vehemently denying those accusations.

A real pleasant situation.

But this is baseball’s hot stove season and Bradley just so happens to be a major league free agent.

Rumors rest for no man. Or something.

According to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times, the Rockies met Wednesday with Bradley’s agents. There’s no telling how serious the chat was or whether the Rox actually have interest in bringing Bradley aboard this winter, but it’s fairly clear that Bradley wants to return to baseball and there’s a chance he’ll get at least some amount of consideration from teams desperate for outfield depth.

Bradley, 33, batted just .218/.313/.356 with two home runs and 13 RBI in 115 plate appearances for the Mariners this year before they cut him loose in mid-May. He posted a .378 on-base percentage over 124 games with the Cubs in 2009 and a .436 OBP across 126 games for the Rangers in 2008.

    This has to be a joke, any team that takes this psycho on is just looking for trouble.

      Relax, his agent doubles as his criminal defense lawyer.

    I will stop going to the two games a year I go to. Maybe they can bring Dante Bichette and Brett Myers in to have the all DV team, then bring Denny Neagle to show them the best spots on Colfax get hookers. Here we go Rockies here we go.

    Can’t get Joey Belle out of retirement Rockies?

    Tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick…………..BOOM! Get the picture Rockies!

    The Rockies obviously need to get out of the high altitude more often. Either that or they’re just being cruel to string along a guy with so many problems.

    This is so un-Rockies like, that the other reasonable explanation is that no such meeting took place.

    Drew, you forgot to add “for some reason” at the end of your title.

    No, you are all wrong. This is a ploy to get Theo and the Cubs to bring him back. Don’t you know Theo is a genius and can do anything? He will probably sign for no more than Albert.

      Oh cool, an unwarranted and non-sensical Theo Epstein joke! I love those!

    Agree this is very un-Rockies like. I would not be surprised if his agent planted the story to drum up interest. There is absolutely no way Rockies look at Bradley. Not only is a total ***hole, but he just doesn’t fit on the team as a player.
