I have a philosophy about team building at work. I'd rather reign people in than bump them up. It's a matter of style, preference and comfort - it isn't for everyone. Milton Bradley may be my kind of guy. But is he a fit for the Cubs?
"Milton wants to win as much as any player I've ever been around," Rangers manager Ron Washington told the Sporting News. "Sometimes, that's misunderstood, and that's unfortunate. Milton gets a bad rap, and it's not because he doesn't care. It's because he cares too much."
I do hope the Cubs sign Bradley. He's a very good baseball player and could really add some fire and balance to the club. Mostly, though, I like that he'll hit like crazy, get on base a lot, run well and play good defense. Even if he misses a 40-50 games, he'll be worth it.
