Following the Nationals 15-6 win over the Cubs last night, Milton Bradley, who rejected the Nationals for the Cubs this offseason, was quoted by ESPN Chicago as saying:
“We got a Rodney King beatdown tonight.”
A lot of crazy things have come out of Milton Bradley’s lips through the years, such as:
“…It’s not funny to Milton Bradley.”-Milton Bradley
“I want people to say Milton Bradley was a pretty good ballplayer and a pretty good person. Anybody who is going to stand between me and getting there, then they need to be eliminated.”-Milton Bradley
This one may take the cake as the craziest of all time, and that says a lot for Bradley.
I think Duk’ from Big League Stew put it best when he said:
"Raise your hand if you ever thought the '09 Nats would ever be compared to the '90s LAPD! I'd say that Bradley's comment was insensitive — King suffered a broken face, a broken leg and countless bruises during that incident — but in an age where a portion of this country sees no problem in comparing the President's healthcare campaign to the Nazis' extermination of millions of human beings, I have no idea where that line is anymore."
