Did they not say his only problems in Cleveland were with his manager? And he wouldnt be a problem? He really flipped out.

Why was he ejected in the first place? I saw the meltdown on the news.

bradley didnt like a call in a previous at bat .he came up the next time and said something as he approached the plate and got tossed .he took off his helmet and batting gloves and left them at the plate .then he went to the dugout and got a bag full of baseballs and let all the balls out onto the field .and then he threw one of them in the stands .funny thing is the umps kept his bat and batting gloves i guess out of spite .the dodgers wanted them back but they said no .and also the pitcher for the brewers was in a game in the arizona fall league where bradley punched an ump in the face and said he wasnt surprised about what happened tonight .i knew about most of his antics but i never heard that one before .

He seems to have some similarities to another player, Jurassic Carl Everett.

What an A-hole. Didn't he run over a girl with his car a few years ago?

I didn't hear anything about Bradley running someone over but it wouldn't suprise me if he did do something like that. I think he has serious issues which could lead to him really hurting someone. He's a very talented player but these outbursts are going to keep him from reaching his potential.

My bad, he didn't hit anyone. He just drove away from an officer who was trying to give him a speeding ticket:

Bradley was charged with driving 52 mph in a 25-mph zone in August. He also was charged with failure to comply after police said he drove away without signing his speeding ticket.

Milton Bradley is crazy as hell, but his meltdown was hysterical with a touch of Sweet Lou. You could tell that Bradley had lost it completely. Great stuff.

I wish I'd seen it. But it doesn't suprise me whatsoever. He's a caveman with talent. Like someone else said... Carl Everett II. I remember how much I hated his stupid showboating when he was with Cleveland. Then in interleague play, he had a run in with Paul Lo Duca (one of my favorite non-Yankees) when he pimped around the bases after hitting a HR against the Dodgers and now Lo Duca has to tolerate him as a teammate.

It is a sad reflection on the current state of the Dodgers. Hilarious to watch,yes, but sad nonetheless. I wonder if the new Dodger ownership has the ability to right the ship. Although I am not a Dodger fan, I think that baseball would benefit from a competitive team here in LA.

As an aside, I did enjoy the "Top Ten Tirades" piece on Sportcenter. My favorite was Lloyd McLendon stealing first base.

LOL, we all know he got picked on in school. "Hey Milton, here's your board game" WHACK!

And now, he's tossing bags of baseballs onto the feild.

I would not by pleased if this guy was on the Yankees making a mockery of himself (as if his name doesn't already accomplish that) and the team but since he is not I think it is pretty freakin hilarious.:lol:

His tirade's amusing as long as you're not a teammate or an opposing team member.

As an O'Neill fan, I'm a firm believer in ranting and raving but I feel you should only take it onto the field in EXTREME circumstances. I don't think Milton really had adequate reason to do that but I can't figure him out anyway.

Suspended four games for his rant.

That is quite a bit. Probably had something to do with his reputation. Personally, I loved watching it but Bradley is absolutely crazy.

Milton Bradley needs a straightjacket. He reminds me of Carl Everett.

While he was in Cleveland, he and L.A. Dodger Paul Lo Duca traded taunts and gestures at each other.

http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/recap?gid=230614105

Bradley even said this: ``I live by a simple creed,'' he said. ``If you don't know me and I don't know you, don't approach me and I won't approach you. Don't insult me and I won't insult you because you don't know what I will or won't do.''

I wonder what Paul Lo Duca is reacting to this tirade.

Just think - about three years ago - Frank Robinson fined some players (Bernie and one or two other Yankees among them) for wearing their uniform pants too long - yet this guy (Bradley) is still playing games. That tirade (funny though it was to watch) was disgraceful and he should have been suspended for a month and appropriately fined. And appeal?! What appeal?! It was on national TV for goodness sakes! This is just too messed up. What a nut job. I agree - Carl Everett JUNIOR!

In that case, I am surprised Sheffield hasn't been fined. His pants practically cover his shoes.

I read in the Boston Globe today that Jody Gerut, former Bradley teammate from Cleveland, compared Bradley and Paul O'Neill. Don't know about that one, O'Neill was emotional but I didn't think he acted like Bradley.

Bradley is a nut case but I also want to point out that he was dealing with one of the worst umpiring crews in the game. Joe West is known for being nasty and he has hurt the Red Sox with crazy calls and ejections on several occasions. I did not see the incident and this sounds like a crazy stunt but with these umps I have to wonder if he was provoked

I don't ever recall O'Neill disrupting a game like Bradley did. O'Neill only took it out on himself (and the water cooler).

And boy did he take it out on the water cooler. I think the better analogy is still Everett.

O'Neill never showboated like Bradley either. O'Neill would mostly bash things in the dugout, etc. after striking out, not throw things at people or assault them....
