Ex-Cub Bradley: `Beat it'

| 4 Comments | No TrackBacks

The self-described Kanye West of baseball avoided the stage today in his only chance this spring to play against his former Cubs team.

And Milton Bradley didn't seem to want to talk about that or anything else when three Chicago reporters approached him near his locker in the Seattle Mariners clubhouse before today's Cubs-Mariners game.

``No chance,'' he said, preempting the interview request. ``Beat it. You guys ran me out of town. Never again.''

As much as some members of the media might like to believe they/we have that much power, it was pointed out to Bradley as he walked way that the media didn't run him out of town -- to which Bradley reacted by raising two fingers, saying, ``Peace,'' and turning the corner out of sight.

He was also a no-show in today's lineup after playing six innings in Seattle's game Saturday.

Bradley, who was named Seattle's everyday cleanup hitter this weekend, recently told AP:

"If I was a musician, I'd be Kanye West. If I was in the NBA, I'd be Ron Artest. In baseball, they've got Milton Bradley. I'm that guy. You need people like me, so you can point your finger and go, 'There goes the bad guy."'

still blaming everyone else... still doesnt get it...

He is the only guy named Milton Bradley that does not know how the game is played.......

"If I was a musician, I'd be Kanye West. If I was in the NBA, I'd be Ron Artest. In baseball, they've got Milton Bradley. I'm that guy. You need people like me, so you can point your finger and go, 'There goes the bad guy."'

Dude -- if you WAS a writer, you'd be unemployed.

It's: "If I WERE ... ."

Blame the fans and the media all you want Milton. The Bulls had a guy named Dennis Rodman. The ONLY difference between Milton Bradley and Dennis Rodman is that Dennis actually brought some value to the team and made the Bulls better. The fans accepted and cheered him based on his performance. Oh, by the way, last I checked Rodman was African American too. Milton, What did you do to make the Cubs better last year?
