    When healthy this guy can rake and will win some games for you if he can stay on the field.

    He is definitely a competitor, and you have to like his desire to win. I was personally hoping for Jermaine Dye even tho he isn't hittin that well. Milton should be a good addition to the padres lineup tho, so i'm excitedd.

    Still no word on who the minor leaguer is, but speculation is Andrew Brown

    this is a good sign. If this guy stays healthy, I like our chances now. If we can keep hitting, I really like our chances.

    We needed offense. Worth a gamble imo. I like the pickup.

    I know and I've been noticing more and more similarities as time goes on.

    I don't know what to tell you about that other than winning is always better than losing.

    Andrew Brown was pretty damn good in Portland.

    Don't know how it'll translate to the majors.

    He'll get his shot but that doesn't help me RIGHT NOW. I loved Bradley and I swear if dude ever plays a full season he will be an MVP candidate.

    and when the Padres hit, we are unstoppable. Problem is we are not consistent.

    But no one has ever made the Hall of Fame while on the disabled list.

    Come on H8er I'm not talking Hall of Fame. Listen this guy has mad skills and he re-defines hot in baseball terms. You're a baseball guy watch the outs he makes. At least 60% of them are hard hit balls and this dude busts it down the line. He plays with emotion and he backs it up. He's basically a mercenary and you guys are getting him when he's ready to roll.

    Milton Bradley = 2006 ALCS MVP. That's what that award should read. :yes:

    Congrats you're going to the playoffs. :yes: :tup:

    Yes, I will agree with you on how he plays, but he seems to be injured more then he plays. And we need players who play.

    Milton Bradley is a worthless egotistical injured cancer and the Padres will rue the day they picked this bastard up

    it's "rue"

    and I doubt they rue anything.

    If Bradley gets out of line they cut him and all they lose is a minor league relief pitcher, a position they have an abundance of.

    You can argue that they won't get much help out of him, but it's a bit of a stretch to insinuate any kind of disaster to come from it.

    Brown was WAAAY too high a price for Bradley of all people. Guy who can throw 100 mph even if he has worse accuracy then Rick Vaughn has some value to some team. Bradley just pisses people off and acts like an *** hole

    i thought rue was a sauce so i went with roo, BUT i did fix it

    When you have Kevin Towers building your bullpen Andrew Browns are a dime a dozen.

    Worst case scenario here: Bradley throws a baseball bat in the dug out and is cut the next day and, in the meantime, Andrew Brown proves to be a really effective reliever for the A's....all the while the Padres bullpen remains the best in the bigs.

    That's hardly rueing the trade. Moreso just marking it as an ill advised one.

    I would much rather have a guy who only throws 90, and is able to hit his spots all day, then have a guy who throws a 100 with no accuracy.

    I will run out of Pitchers because he will always be getting tossed out of the game for hitting batters. Now I have to plan on 2 Pitchers throwing on his "Days"

    Just so you know Bradley had zero problems with the A's players or fans. Nothing.

    And if he blows up again he's cut and the Padres really don't lose much.

    The risk vs reward ratio is good on this deal.

    I REALLY hope so. The Padres not asking for a medical check-up was kinda odd. But, since the A's are paying for the majority of his money, it's, like Leo said, low-loss ratio for the Padres. I dont like him starting his time with the Padres on the DL no matter what. Although, since the A's are my favorite AL team, I dont like that they are paying most of his money.

    I saw Andy Brown pitch at ST, against the A's, interestingly enough. Big, tall, POWER righty reliever. If he can get better control, the A's can use him.

    Andy's speed was there, control was sporadic. Who is the A's pitching coach? I could look it up, but Im too lazy...
