I know that the A’s are cutting Milton Bradley loose. And, given the Yankees injuries to Giambi and Damon, I’m sure that many Yankees fans would like to see New York grab Bradley, if possible.
However, let’s look at the facts. Bradley had one super season in 2003. Since that time, he’s been a tick over league average…when he can stay sound enough to play. And, it’s that latter thing that’s the issue. Bradley’s spent so much time on the D.L. in the last three years that sometimes he mistakenly gets Carl Pavano’s shirts handed to him when he shows up at the Dry Cleaners.
Oh, and, there’s the whole anger management matter.
Milton Bradley is brittle, bad tempered, and, for the most part, an average bat. How is adding a player like this going to help the Yankees?
