Sorry to break it to you Brad, but you don't get the 550 at bats that you got in Montreal. Your 2007 season was actually better statistically than your 2006. You had 18 more AB's, and 8 more hits to show for it. Not to forget you only had 107 strikeouts against 116 in 2006. So, you're disappointed? Heck, We all are!
As for the signing of Milton Bradley. We will have have to see how this guys does. He is known for missing many games during the season. He has only once played more then 101 games in a season. Bradley who is coming back from knee sugery (he fell to ground after Bud Black had to restrain him from confronting an umpire on a bad call) won't be ready for opening day. His return date is unknown, but the Rangers awarded him a one year/5million dollar contract out bidding the San Diego Padres. Bradley will most likely fill the DH role if he is not well enough to play outfield.
Bottom Line: Milton Bradley is a productive player and is capable of sparking a fuse during the season. Unfortunatley, he is prone to injury. If his trend continues we will only have him 2/3 of the season. Also note that he is coming back to American League where he could utilize the DH spot if he is not healthy enough to play everyday outfield. Bradley and Washington know each other from their time in Oakland. Only time can tell for this guy.
