Milton Bradley Is Emotional Stress

Bullpen BrianCorrespondent IMay 8, 2010

Milton Bradley isn’t the only one who should have his head checked this week…so should Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik.

Seattle, at Milton’s request, placed him on the Restricted List so he can seek treatment for ‘emotional stress.’

Bradley must sit for a minimum of five games…although his teammates, I imagine, probably wish he doesn’t return at all.

As expected, Milton’s been up to his usual antics in the great northwest…strained calf…strained middle finger…and a strained relationship with his current employer.

Zduriencik ruined the one of the best offseasons of any club by trading for Bradley. Now he’s paying for it…the same way Jim Hendry did and all other GMs before them. So excuse me for not feeling sorry for the guy.

It’s not like Bradley is the best kept secret in baseball…when you buy him, you buy problems…and Milton has a boat-load of them.

In fact, Bradley’s really no different than all the expensive yachts I see docking at Belmont Harbor…the second best day of owning a boat is the day you buy it…and the first is the day you sell it.

Couldn’t ring more true for Milton The Terrible, either.
