Quick update: the unfortunate trade is now official. Today, the
Chicago Cubs traded Milton Bradley to the Seattle Mariners for
“pitcher” Carlos Silva and $9 million. Silva makes about $3 million
more than Bradley over the next two years, so the Cubs save $6 million
total. But they’re stuck with a guy who has been, quite possibly, the
worst starting pitcher in baseball over the past two years. When he
was healthy enough to pitch, that is.
A more thorough evaluation is forthcoming. For now, settle in to some
eggnog, and try to shake this one off.
