Bradley Not Enjoying Chicago

Bruce Miles of the Daily Herald caught up with Milton Bradley on Saturday and his interview with Bradley is very interesting to say the least. Bradley scratched himself from the lineup once again, but did not want to talk about his knee. He did have this to say …

From the Daily Herald

“… The only time he became expansive at all was when he was asked if he had enjoyed his first season in Chicago.”

“Not really,” he said. “It’s just not a positive environment. I need a stable, healthy, enjoyable environment. There’s too many people everywhere in your face with a microphone asking the same questions repeatedly. Everything is just bashing you. You got out there and you play harder than anybody on the field and never get credit for it. It’s just negativity.”

“And you understand why they haven’t won in 100 years here, because it’s negative. It’s what it is.”

Milton Bradley was asked to explain if he was talking about the fans, the media or the Cubs’ organization. Bradley responded with

“It’s everything. It’s everybody.”

However, he would not go so far as to say he regretted coming to Chicago. “No, I made the decision,” he said. It is what it is.”

When asked if he thought he would be a Cub next season, Bradley answered, “Who knows?

Keith Law from said the Cubs should release Milton Bradley immediately during his interview on Talkin’ Baseball Saturday morning … and Ken Rosenthal said during the broadcast on Saturday that “Milton Bradley has become a walking no-trade clause” when asked if the Cubs will try to trade him in the off-season.
