Milton Bradley DFA'd

Recommended Posts

Decent player who is ALWAYS hurt and a headcase to boot.....since when is "he's cheap" the determining factor in acquiring a player for the Yanks?

Better players will free up soon and 1B should be addressed as a priority anyway.

Thats great rational... Just because 1B should be a priority that means that other gaping holes shouldn't be filled? Give me a break.

So Damon and Melky are now considered gaping holes? I am no Melky fan but him in CF, Damon at DH and a legit power hitting 1B should be the direction of this current team.

This would allow Damon to go on DL, where he belongs.

Knowing Bradley he'd be right behind him.

So you don't go get a good player for NOTHING because me MIGHT go on the DL? How does that make any sense?

He is a pedestrian player who can't stay on the field and is a headcase.

Mike you have your opinion others have theirs.....let me go.

That might happen. Then again, it might not. I'll take my chances on it not happening, then playing an injured hobbled shell of his former self, Johnny Damon.

True waffle form from someone who celebrated the Damon signing when the Sox felt going anything above their offer was risky.

You are missing the point here.

Bringing up old things that posters were wrong on in the past when it has NOTHING to do with the thread, is just complete bush league, and pretty pathetic.

I never once last year disagreed with GS on a subject and threw out a line saying how coco crisp sure was a better younger version of Damon. I easily could have because Damon was having a great year and Crisp is a bust, but I did not. Why? Because its bush, and it has NOTHING to do with the thread. Case closed. I expect the same respect towards myself and others.

LOL...Matt39 reminded me of that prediction plenty last season and I admitted I was wrong even though Crisp was hurt last year. I also called Damon the most clutch Yankee in 06. I still believe Boston made the correct long term decision and in year two it may be leaning that way.

I remind you of some of your rants as with Pennington or any player you waffle on the subject to a point and than once you decide on a position, insist endlessly that your opinion is the only valid one. Mind you "respect" towards others isn't readily seen when you go on those rants.

If you are annoyed by occassionally being called out on your rants in a arena where predictions and opinions are common place, than you honestly need to grow a tougher set or go the way of Ham.

At any rate rather than have pages of arguments, you have my apology on the matter.

Possible Milton Bradley Suitors from MLB Trade Rumors:

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle mentions several potential suitors for Milton Bradley in today's column. She names the Padres and Pirates as possibilities, citing connections to Paul DePodesta and Jim Tracy. Additionally, Slusser quotes Billy Beane in saying that he worked on a Bradley trade within the past three weeks but it fell through.

The Pirates, as a noncontender, really don't need to be picking up impending free agents. There's just no reason for it. They need to give as much playing time to young players as possible.

The Padres, though, make a fine fit. Bradley could help them in all three outfield spots, when healthy. John Perrotto confirms interest from both teams.

Meanwhile, the Mets will apparently pass because of Bradley's baggage. Bradley, though, had a relatively peaceful stay in Oakland.

Guess it doesnt matter sincxe he was traded to KC for crap.

The Royals called off the Milton Bradley deal with the A's after learning that the outfielder suffered an oblique strain in his final game with the club on Tuesday.

The A's reportedly did not know of the injury when they designated Bradley for assignment on Thursday. "The A's were not at fault," Royals GM Dayton Moore said. Perhaps Bradley didn't want to play for the Royals so he made up the injury? If he becomes a free agent, he'll be able to choose his team, something he might find preferable. The Royals agreed to give up Leo Nunez and pay the remainder of Bradley's $4 million salary before the trade fell through.
