If you thought that the Cubs blew it by signing Mental Milton last year, you can only wonder why in the Cukoo's Nest did Seattle sign Baseball's answer to Dr. Demento to play for them in 2010.

Even though it is early in the season, I snooped around to see if there were any indications if Bats in the Belfry Bradley had turned things around or are we in for another season of The Mentalist.

You be the judge. I found this at after the Mariners fourth straight loss yesterday:

"Former Ranger Milton Bradley went 0 for 4 for the Mariners and is hitting .059 on the season. After popping out in the eighth, he glared for about 10 seconds at fans who were jeering him behind the visitor's dugout.

"When he was asked if he knew about Bradley flipping off fans down the left field line after making a catch in the fourth, [Seattle Manager Don] Wakamatsu declined comment.

"Bradley was wearing headphones after the game and did not speak to reporters."

It's nice to see things haven't changed.

Stay tuned for more Bradley Watch reports throughout the season.
