This is the worst news I have heard in a long time as a Cubs fan.  Yes, worse then Aramis Ramirez out with an injury or when D-Lee got hurt a couple years ago.  Milton Bradley could be back as a Cub in 2010.

Why?

Former Texas Rangers hitting "guru," Rudy Jamarillo is going to be the new Cubs swing coach in 2010.  Apparently, he has a good standing relationship with Bradley, so this can't hurt right?

Wrong.  I could care less about Jamarillo's relationship with Bradley.

If the Ricketts family wants to make 2010 like 2006, so be it.  I will boycott Cubs baseball until Bradley leaves.  Just like us fans did in 2006, I won't attend a game, nor will I watch this decrepit team on TV.

Hopefully the Ricketts family makes like the Tribune Company did the following year.  Firring team president at the time Andy McPhail and spending lots of money.  Only this time getting rid of Bradley.

I don't think Jamarillo could help Bradley.  Milton needs more help then just a swing.  He needs attitude help.

Teammate, Ryan Theriot said on the Waddle and Silvy show that the only time Bradley was happy was after he won a card game on the team plane.  Even after home runs, the man was unhappy.

Why keep an unhappy teammate?

Jim Hendry, if you keep this poor excuse for a ball player and a teammate, you deserve to leave the organization.  Fool me once with the signing of Bradley, shame on me.  Fool me twice by keeping him, SHAME ON YOU JIM HENDRY!

Not only was he a poor excuse for a teammate, he was a poor excuse for a ball player.  He underachieved.  He hit .257 with 40 RBIs and 12 home runs!  What a $10 million waste!

Dear Hendry.  PLEASE, for the sake of Cubs nation, get rid of Milton Bradley.  The time has come to rid the team of this "disease."
