According to ESPNChicago.com, the Chicago Cubs have suspended OF Milton Bradley for the remainder of the season. The Cubs suspended Bradley because of comments he made about there being too much negativity in Chicago.

Is it me or did everyone on the planet see this coming except for Cubs’ GM Jim Hendry? Even my sister, who knows as much about baseball as the table I am writing this post on, saw this coming.

Sorry Jen, but it is true.

Bradley said, “It’s just not a positive environment. I need a stable, healthy, enjoyable environment.…It’s just negativity.” Really Milton? When are you going to realize it’s you–not the fans.

Bradley has been in the league now since 2000. Since then he has played on the Montreal Expos, Cleveland Indians, Los Angeles Dodgers, Oakland A’s, San Diego Padres, Texas Rangers, and the Chicago Cubs. That’s seven teams in 10 years for those of you scoring at home.

Bradley has worn out his welcome everywhere he has been. Now he has worn out his welcome in Chicago. My guess is Hendry will do everything he can to trade Bradley in the offseason. The Cubs will have to eat the majority of Bradley’s salary on the remaining two years left on his contract because no team is going to pay this idiot as much as the Cubs are.

Bradley has had a terrible year for the Cubs. He is batting a stellar .257 with just 12 HR’s and 40 RBI.

But I guess it’s the fans fault.
