Don't Let the Door Hit You, Milton

By Garrett Monaghan

The Cubs took a long overdue step today and suspended the annual winner of the league's Biggest Loudmouth award, sending Milton Bradley home for the rest of the year. Jim Hendry took the unprecedented step after Milton made another series of derogatory comments about Cubs fans, Chicago, and the 100-year curse. Hendry was also quoted as saying that he's not sure the organization's relationship with Bradley is "fixable."

It's about time.

Bradley's mouth has been a bigger detriment to the organization than his bat this year, which is saying quite a bit. I can't think of another time that I've seen Hendry suspend a player, and his comment about the situation not being fixable tells me that one way or another, Milton's gone come the off-season. At this point, I wouldn't be too surprised too see the Cubs simply eat his salary and cut him loose.

The most you can say for Bradley is that he's consistent. He's been shown the door everywhere he's played, and Chicago's no exception. Cubs fans hate him, Cubs management clearly can't stand him, and something tells me his teammates don't like him either. I'd wager a fair amount of cash that the next time Bradley shows up at Wrigley Field, it'll be wearing another uniform, and getting beer dumped on him by his biggest fans.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

  1. Baseball is still a team sport and the Cubs are clearly a better team without Milton Bradley. They might be an even better team without Carlos Zambrano. Think about it Z.
