Bradley a possible Jay?

The Chicago Cubs suspended Milton Bradley for the remainder of the season Sunday, likely ending his tenure in the Windy City just one year into the three-year, $30 million deal he signed last winter. Expect someone to bite on the remaining two years of his contract, and don’t be surprised if that team is the Toronto Blue Jays. The Jays made a slight push for the best name in board games in the off-season before he signed with Chicago, where he just .257 with 12 homers.

Bradley, of course, is a maniac. See here. And here. Here too. This also. More evidence. And lastly, here. He did, however, hit .321 last season as a Texas Ranger, albeit in an injury-plagued season. Would he fit as a Jay? Well, if nothing else he’d challenge Jesse Carlson for the role of Baddest Ass and perhaps spark the team’s intensity level. I say it’s worth looking into, especially if the Cubs are willing to take on the remainder of one of our bad salaries. Can you say Lyle Overbay?

By the way, something of note from ESPN.com’s article on Bradley’s suspension:

Cubs outfielder Reed Johnson had trouble understanding why Bradley was so unhappy.

“I came from Toronto and come here and just like fall in love with the city and fall in love with the organization,” Johnson said. “It’s just hard for me to believe that you can come to this city, come to this organization, and not enjoy your time here.”

Yes Reed, we all know Toronto is a horrible baseball town. However, might I note that you’re hitting .252 as a bench player on a .500 team in the National League? Keep up the great work!
