Milton Bradley- The Man an Army Couldn82

Indlægaf jackky » 14. sep 2017, 07:00

You know what statheads love to do? Sam Martin Jersey Find pet players whove been overlooked by teams, and lobby to allow them to find a real home.Often, we concentrate on players with strong minor league records whove never gotten a shot because of perceived weakne ses, only to see those perceived weakne ses regurgitated through the big club his or her numbers grow gaudier and gaudier. 10 years ago, we would have liked to Free Erubiel Durazo. Now, we want to Free Brandon Allen.
Well also, occasionally, back a player with supposed attitude problems. Whether those troubles are real or harmful, we will (sometimes) reason that consistent performance should outweigh a jerky demeanor. When the As from the 70s could put up a mini-dynasty with 25 men and 25 cabs, just how much harm is one able to rouser of rabble cause? Which was Milton Bradley, and that was us.
Bradley got dumped for the first time in 2001, through the same Montreal Expos organization that raised him. Though hed had a few dust-ups in the minors, Bradley hadnt yet encounter the type of high-profile blow-up that would later define his career. Maybe then-Expos GM Jim Beattie had an inkling that the talented young outfielder would run into trouble, and thats why he flipped Bradley for forgettable right-hander Zach Day. Or po sibly this was just the same guy who also once gave Graeme Lloyd a three-year, $9 million contract, and traded three prospects (including Jake Westbrook and Ted Lilly) for Hideki Freaking Irabu.
Bradley started slowly using the Indians, then became popular in 2003, hitting .321/.421/.501 with strong defense and a career-high 17 steals. But that year saw Bradley grapple with another defect that would plague Crezdon Butler Jersey his career: a serious lack of durability. He would spend 65 days or more around the disabled list in four of five seasons spanning 2003 through 2007 (hat tip to Corey Dawkins at Baseball Prospectus). Though he played just 101 games in 03, Bradley 4.6-WAR season would prove to be our prime point of his career (matched by his huge 2008 campaign).
Though injuries were being a concern, teams dont trade five-tool outfielders coming off big seasons at age 25 unle s theres a really good reason. But thats exactly what the Indians did, sending Bradley towards the Dodgers after his run-in with Cleveland skipper Eric Wedge during spring training. Bradley lasted 2 yrs in L.A. before getting delivered to Oakland; more injuries, service time, and the Dodgers liking Andre Ethier (good call there!) played a big role within the decision. But Bradleys temper did too. Inside a June 2004 game, Bradley became so frustrated having a third strike call that, upon going back to the dugout, he fired a large number of balls to the field. Near the end of the season, a fan to sed a plastic bottle to the field in Bradleys direction, after Bradley made a big error. Bradley picked up the bottle, started yelling up at the fans, then chucked the bottle in to the stands.
He showed flashes of greatne s in Oakland, becoming the third player to hit home runs from each side of the plate in a playoff game. By the next summer, he was designated for a signment, having again was a victim of injuries and managing just 61 games that entire season. He hit a good .292/.373/.446 using the As, though, leaving someone to wonder if a well-mannered player with this profile (Nick Johnson?) could have been retained as an ace pinch-hitter instead of getting thrown overboard. Late that season, inside a key game from the Padres, Bradley got into it with first-base umpire Mike Winters. North park first base coach Bobby Meacham claims Winters was swearing at and baiting Bradley, po sibly knowing his reputation which such actions might set him off. They sure did: Bradley got so incensed that Ryan Spadola Jersey whenever he lunged at Winters while manager Bud Black tried to restrain him, he tore his ACL, a large blow that contributed to the Padres blowing their late-season lead and mi sing the playoffs.
There was more: He attempted to go after Royals TV announcer Ryan Lefebvre for which Bradley claimed were unfair comments about him. The next year, he got suspended for bumping an ump. Bradley threw a healthy after flying out during a game, prompting manager Lou Piniella to order him to visit home. That led to a clubhouse altercation, and then that year, a season-ending suspension through the club. Bradley may not have been wrong when he said, you understand why they [Cubs] havent won in A century here. But suspending him to be impo sible to cope with wasnt high on the list of explanations why. Last season, Bradley left the Mariners for 2 weeks, for undisclosed personal reasons. As Shannon Drayer expertly chronicled in her farewell post on Bradley, the Mariners bent over backwards to support him before finally cutting him loose, probably well after other teams would have quit.
Through it all, Bradleys supporters frequently backed him because the victim of a bum rap (somewhat true, should you read Drayers post and consider he may have simply been an incredibly competitive player who struggled with his emotions). We wondered if he could achieve the best environment (most likely not true, because the injuries happened often in many different cities, as did the blow-ups). So we felt his talent was being short-changed (frequently true).
When the Mariners traded Carlos Silva for Bradley in December 2009, many of us needed to Charles Washington Jersey throw a ticker-tape parade in honor of Jack Zduriencik. In the end, the Mariners GM had converted an allegedly usele s pitcher into a hitter only a year taken off a monster season who at worst could be a really good part-time bat. Never mind that Silva became a solid, 2-win pitcher last year like a part-time starter, while Bradley languished below replacement level, then did exactly the same early this season.
By time Bradley ended last year appearing like a hollow version of his former self, even the biggest believers were ready to cut the cord. A January felony arrest stemming from the domestic violence allegation ended without any charges being filed. However Adairius Barnes Jersey the mere concept of Bradleys outbursts turning more serious from the field torpedoed the last of his supporters, making his release an imminent inevitability.
I was among those last supporters. Like Vladimir Guerrero, Larry Walker, along with other Expos minor league phenoms, I remember Bradley the teenage Vermont Expo, starting to put his game together even as whispers began that he was directly on the cusp between competitive and too competitive. I rooted for him to really make it in Montreal, then backed him every subsequent step of the way. But eventually, I simply felt bad for the guy. It stinks that it had to end this way for him, like a washed-up 33-year-old whos not even sufficiently good to crack one of baseballs worst offenses. Worse, as a malcontent whose powder keg personality made people forget the player he was previously, and could happen to be.
I rooted for him as long as I po sibly could. Whatever he does now, I really hope he finds inner peace. As Drayer said: Hopefully in the future it doesnt have to be hard to be Milton Bradley.
