Obsessive Bradley Trade Watch: Rumors of Bradley to Seattle Mariners

File this under “Oh Please Dear Baby Jesus No.” We heard rumors of Milton Bradley heading off to Seattle for “pitcher” Carlos Silva a few weeks ago. Mercifully, those rumors were quickly doused.

Obsessive Bradley Trade Watch: Once Again, Trade is Imminent

Writers have become wise, and have ditched the use of the term “imminent” when discussing a potential Milton Bradley trade – but the most recent report from Bruce Levine might as well say imminent.

The Boston Red Sox are in “serious talks” with Mike Cameron to play […]

Jim Hendry is a Glass Half Full Kind of Guy – But Half Full of What?

Despite a wildly disappointing Winter Meetings, which saw the Chicago Cubs accomplish nothing – most notably, Milton Bradley is still a Cub, and pool of interested teams dwindles by the day – General Manager Jim Hendry is still optimistic that things will turn out all right when all is said and done. Although he expressed […]

Major League Baseball’s winter meetings come to a close today, and yes, Milton Bradley is still a member of the Chicago Cubs. How can this be?

Cubs Interested in Joel Pineiro

Maybe the Chicago Cubs will look for a starting pitcher after all. Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports has tweeted (what is the present perfect tense of “to tweet” – has tweeted? has twut?) that, among other teams, the Cubs are showing interest in Cardinals free agent pitcher Joel Pineiro. The Cubs have not denied this […]

Obsessive Bradley Trade Watch: No Mystery Team?

There are now conflicting reports on whether there is, in fact, a mystery American League team close to landing Milton Bradley from the Chicago Cubs.

Obsessive Bradley Trade Watch: Bradley to the Royals for Gil Meche?

These things are flying fast and loose. Last night, per Bruce Levine, Cubs officials met with the Kansas City Royals about a potential Milton Bradley/Gil Meche swap. You’ll recall: (1) the Royals had expressed interest in signing Bradley some moons ago, and (2) the exact same sentence, but swap “Cubs” for “Royals,” and “Meche” for […]
