In other news, Wedge actually did blame sabremetrics on why Dustin Ackley can't cut it in the majors.

Go to Jail. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200 Dollars!

Funny, Milton Bradley always seemed stable on the field...

That's what I was alluding to in part of that post.

How come Francona can't control embarrassing baserunning?

How come when he got ejected the other day it didn't "fire up" the troops, and lead them to a comeback?

These teams can be managed by forklifts.

Holy shit. If the Wedge-led Tribe baserunners had run the sacks like this group does people here would be demanding videotape depositions to account for every single second of Spring Training fundamentals exercises.

I wonder what Milton's mom has to say this time? Maybe the judge just insulted Milty and just made the list??


the Los Angeles Times interviewed Bradley's mother, Charlena Rector, who said "Milton's not temperamental until somebody insults him. Then, he'll embarrass you. Eric Wedge insulted him, so Eric Wedge got embarrassed."

She added later in the article, "Eric is a nobody that had an ego trip about it and he wanted to appear to be big.''

Bradley said in the same article, "It kind of caught me off guard, (Wedge) coming at me, asking me about my effort. It was just a power trip or something.''

Later that month, Bradley told Sports Illustrated, "It was strictly a problem with Eric Wedge. Some people want to be bigger than they are. You have no credentials, you have no history of anything, how are you going to tell someone else what he needs to be doing? I can't respect somebody that has nothing to go on.''

And now her son is a convicted felon who pissed away a lot of talent and potential earnings.

How did Wedge get embarrassed? By forcing the team to deal that nut job? Seeing the issues he had afterwards, Wedge did the Tribe a huge favor by getting rid of that head case.
