We guessed that Milton Bradley’s most recent – and unbelievable – comments about the Chicago Cubs would lead to his walking papers, and in a way, they have. Within the hour, the Cubs have suspended Milton Bradley for the rest of the year.
General manager Jim Hendry cited comments Bradley made this weekend to the Daily Herald, in which Bradley spoke of the negativity he has felt from the fans, the media and even the Cubs organization.
“There are issues that we¹ve had throughout the year that in the last few days became too much for me to tolerate,” Hendry said. CHICAGO SUN-TIMES.
The odds of Bradley returning next year are next to zero now, but the question is: how are the Cubs going to unload him?
He was wildly unproductive this year, he’s got a healthy contract remaining, and now he’s been such a distracting misanthrope that his team has suspended him for the rest of the year.
Does that sound like someone another team is even going to want?
