Chicago Cubs suspend Milton Bradley for remainder of season

The Chicago Cubs have suspended the overpaid and under-performing outfielder Milton Bradley.  The Cubs made a terrible move in signing  Bradley earlier this year to a three-year $30 million deal.  Everyone outside Cubs nation knew this was a terrible signing, as the prima donna outfielder has never been able to fit in with any club.  The Cubs are probably going to trade Bradley after this year, but don’t expect very much in return as this guy is a cancer to any baseball clubhouse.  The Cubs are Bradley’s seventh team in nine seasons in the majors and he has been a problem everywhere he has gone.  This may be the last straw for GM Jim Hendry’s job, as this was one of the worst signings the Cubs have made in years.

    The Cubs should have never signed Bradley. Everyone knew that teaming Bradley and manager Lou Piniella was just not going to work. It’s not as if Bradley was playing well this season so it’s funny that he was running his mouth so much. Bradley played in 124 games for the Cubs this season and he was 101 for 393 (.257 avg, .775 OPS) with 61 runs scored, 12 homers and 40 RBIs. Hopefully this opens up more playing time for Jake Fox. He has played in 74 games for the Cubs this season and he is 54 for 189 (.286 avg, .859 OPS) with 23 runs scored, 11 homers and 41 RBIs. Fox did a good job filling in for Aramis Ramirez will he was out of action due to injury. Buster Olney of ESPN says that the Cubs will have to eat 18-19 million bucks to move Bradley over the winter.
