Bradley For Walker Trade Rumored

Posted in Baseball at 3:41 pm by

Chicago’s WMVP claims the Cubs might be sending Todd Walker to Los Angeles in exchange for the cool, calm and collected Milton Bradley.

With Jeff Kent ensconced at 2B, Walker — an unlikely Gold Glove candidate at any position — would play third base.

If Bradley does indeed, come to Wrigley, Jay Mariotti can finish most of next year’s columns by January 1.

Sports Illustrated’s Tom Verducci does a fine job breaking down the Mets’ financial picture (ie. “where is all the money coming from?”) but the part about the club anticipating a gate of 3 million plus is interesting. There were a lot of empty seats at Shea last September, and while the team are unquestionably a hotter product with the additions of Delgado and Wagner, tickets haven’t gotten any cheaper (and the stadium hasn’t improved one iota) since the last time the Mets drew 3 million.

    Ouch. Busy day for me, didn’t hear that yet. I can’t think of anything worse. Jim Hendry is really having a terrible off-season so far. That’s not to say Howry and Eyre won’t do well; but that the terms of their contracts are wack. Too many years and too much money.

    Trading Walker would be foolish. He flat out rakes, bats left-handed and actually takes pitches and walks, something that is sparse throughout the Cubs lineup. Bradley, is a goof and an overrated one to boot. Just great.

    Milton may not put the Cubs over that third place hurdle in 2006, but as far as Dusty’s mission to get rid of the Cubs “lovable loser” image, Milton is a key addition.

    Can’t wait for Milton Bradley Bottle Day in the new Unfriendly Confines.
