Milton Bradley has been suspended for the remainder of the season after Chicago Cubs brass finally decided they were fed up with the constant drama.
Technically speaking, the whiny outfielder was disciplined for "conduct detrimental to the team" after general manager Jim Hendry caught wind of a negative quote from Bradley in the Illinois' Arlington Daily Herald.
Bradley has two long years remaining on a three-year, $30 million contract that he signed as a free agent last offseason, but Hendry says he's not sure if the relationship is salvageable. Who can blame him? Besides the fact that MB more or less sucks these days, after being scratched from Saturday’s lineup with a "sore left knee", he was quoted as saying "You understand why they haven’t won in 100 years here."
Geez Milt, everyone knows they haven't brought a World Series to Chicago in 100 years because of the black cat, the billy goat, and that jackass Steve Bartman. Good riddance to your lousy .257 batting average.
