Bradley Designated For Assignment

MLB's angry young man has alienated another organization, as the Oakland Athletics designated talented but troubled outfielder Milton Bradley for assignment. The team now has ten days in which they can trade the player or they will grant him his unconditional release. Bradley is one of MLB's leaders in two categories, controversy and trips to the disabled list. This latest episode came about as he was waiting to be reactivated to the 25 man roster after his third time on the D.L. Oakland was trying to determine the health of third baseman Eric Chavez, and so held off activating Bradley longer than he liked. When asked by a reporter, how he was doing on Tuesday Bradley replied that he was healthy and still on the D.L.

Nobody has ever questioned Bradley's talent but his fragility and surliness have caused problems, with the Indians, the Dodgers, and now The A's. As a reporter who covered the Indians during his time playing in Cleveland, I can attest that he is extremely bright and articulate. However this young man has been bitter beyond his years his entire playing career, and he is starting to run out of teams.
