Now see, that didn't take long.

Actually, it took all of 24 hours from the start of Spring Training games for Milton Bradley to turn up lame, this time from a "tight quad" that as the Chicago Tribune reports, is likely to keep him out for the next few days.

Bless Milton and the Cubs for not worrying about it. It's all precautionary, of course. And as Milton replied:

 

"Spring is spring. I had like five at-bats last spring and hit .320 [during the season]. So spring is overrated."

Yeah. In the meantime, I'll hope he'll forgive the rest of us for wondering how a player 12 times on the disabled list -- including four for leg injuries -- will hold up in the first few months of the season in freezing Chicago climate, when he's having trouble staying loose on the warm, dry Arizona playing fields.

I think the folks over at The Disabled List Informer said it best:"He might as well legally change his name to "Strain".
