I can't say this would surprise anyone that has had Milton playing for "their" team, he seems to wear out his welcom rather quickly.

I didn't realize Milton Bradley was a 2 sport star. ;)

I'm mildly surprised by this. I know he has a reputation as a malcontent, and Lou isn't exactly an angel himself. But when they had a little dustup earlier in the season, milton said all the right things, and seemed, at the time, to "get it"...

Of course, profesional athletes all around the world are experts at "saying the right things", especially when the cameras are rolling... so to that end...

...It's pretty much par for the course with Milton.

That was a typing Error. I was so into the Bears defeating the Steelers today i had the Bears on my mind more so than the Cubs.

According to the article, it was the GM that suspended Bradley, and Piniella stated he supports the GM's decision. I don't follow the Cubs closely, but it's the right thing to do - on a team you can't have that type of disruption.

The CUBS new owners need to "suspend" both GM Jim Hendry and Manager Lou PInella. Better yet, dump both of those losers!
