Did anyone see the highlights (or lowlights rather) of Bradley arguing balls and strikes and then going nuts on the umpire? He actually threw his bat and helmet in the direction of the HP umpire! Then his manager Eric Wedge had to hold him back from going after the ump like he was gonna fight him or something. Is this guy an idiot or what? He can't play CF, he doesn't hustle on the bases, and now he's getting tossed for arguing? Anything else he can do to piss off his manager? He's got a great bat, but nothing between the ears.

hmmmm, doesn't hustle, an idiot on the bases, can't play defense...but can hit.

Who did we trade Jimmenez to again? I thought it was that other Ohio club.

Maybe it's in the Ohio water or something? :)

I dunno, that Monopoly game was pretty ingenius ... :)

Seriously though, that guy really is a jag. Something tells me he won't be an Indian next year. Their outfield is loaded with young talent -- he's perfect trade bait. That is, as long as he stays out of jail.

Not to be picky... really I guess that should read - JUST to be picky :D: - Monopoly is made by Parker Brothers and they didn't invent it, merely bought it from the guy who did invent it (a plumber in Brooklyn or something...)

My favorite heckle for Bradley when he's at the Cell is "Chuuuuuutes and Laaaaaaaderrrrrrrs."

That guy is NUTS!

I saw an episode of You Gotta See This and there was a clip of him getting hit by a pitch when he was with the Expos organization, and he charged the mound with the bat. The guy is absolutely psycho.

Milton Bradley, Coco Crisp, do the Jndjans get players with funny names or what?

Does anyone know if Capn' Crunch and Count Chocula are going to be free agents?

I heard Sugar Bear is batting cleanup while Boo Berry is heading to the pen!. HA!

Seriously...Page 2 of ESPN.Com ran a story of Bradley's anger, and how he "rides it to set his stage of stardom". Yeah right, sounds like another Joey Belle episode to me!

I'll make a prediction now and see if I'm right. I think Bradley will be traded by the Indians during the offseason tothe Oakland A's. He's a perfect fit for Oakland. He's an on base machine and he has something wrong with him (evidently) so the A's won't give up much to get him.

I don't know about that. Mark Shapiro (Indians' GM) is pretty smart, and he probably realizes Bradley still has a lot of talent. I don't think he'd give Bradley up for beans.

Your theory is interesting, however.

He's still upset about it a day after! Read this (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/story?id=1587723) .

Call it a hunch. I just think the Indians are going to tire of this while the A's put up with a lot if it helps the team win.

Froemming is by far the most confrontational ump I have ever seen.
