Mariners Designate Milton Bradley For Assignment

CHICAGO (CBS) The Seattle Mariners have designated former Chicago Cub Milton Bradley for assignment, all but ending the controversial outfielders time with the Mariners.

Now that Bradley has been designated for assignment, the Mariners have three options moving forward. They can release Bradley, they can trade him within 10 days or they can send him to the minors, however he would have to approve a move to the minor leagues.

Bradley signed a big free agent contract with the Cubs before the 2009 season. While he never lived up to his contract, he lived up to his reputation of being a head-case. After a tumultuous season in Chicago, the Cubs shipped Bradley off to Seattle in exchange for Carlos Silva, another under-performing player with a big contract.

In his 12 seasons in Major League Baseball, Bradley has played for eight teams, and never spent more than three years in one city.

    I think Mr Bradley`s hate is destroying him.He suffers from depression and should seek the help of a Dr.

    The guy is really a sicko. Never owns up to being what he is – a jerk. Always someone else’s fault. A 3 year old mind inside a man’s body. Silva recently signed with the Yankees and he’s a bum too. Hopefull Silva takes HIS roadshow back to’ when-is-da-way-la’ and Uncle Miltie just disappears.

    Yes, I said what I said in the previous post. However, Bradley, in my opinion really IS mentally ill. For THAT, I have compassion and feel bad for HIM as I do for anyone else with that condition. He WAS a talented athlete who has been on a self destructing nosedive for a long time. He should have more than enough money and hopefully will just retire and seek long term help. Whatever meds he’s on haven’t helped.
