Milton Bradley, Game Over

In Last Expo Standing, Uncategorized on May 10, 2011 at 11:46 pm

While former Expos Bartolo Colon (2-1) & Bruce Chen (4-1) get set to square off in the upcoming Royals-Yankees series the baseball world weeps as one more Montreal Expos is released. The oft-traveled Bradley was let go by the punchless Seattle Mariners after batting .209 in parts of two seasons in 393 PA. Milton started in Montreal, but played with seven more teams. The most time he logged with any one team was 2+ seasons spent with the Tribe.  While he started in the 2008 All-star game his career was marred by too many lows to warrant anyone taking a chance on him at this point. Among them were his fight with then-Indian & current Mariner manager Eric Wedge in 2004, a well documented meltdown with the Cubs, and an altercation with an ump that led to a torn ACL. The Dodgers acquired Andre Ethier for him when Bradley was  shipped to the A’s. It’s only fitting that a day after Ethier’s 30 game hit streak ends so does Milton Bradley’s career.
