Personal favorites that I wrote
Milton Bradley, the continually angry man
2008-03-01 10:51

In the New York Times, Alan Schwarz profiles Texas Rangers outfielder Milton Bradley, who has apparently given up on the idea of changing his image.

“ ‘Say Hello to the Bad Guy,’ ” said Bradley, now with the Texas Rangers. “That’s going to be my song — Jay-Z, on the ‘American Gangster’ soundtrack. I’m the angry guy. I’m the bad guy. I’m through fighting it.”


¶On the bottle incident in Los Angeles: “In Oakland I was telling guys about it, and it’s like they were afraid to ask. I was describing everything — everything about the fans, what they were wearing, the sounds I heard. They were like: ‘How do you remember? You were totally out of control.’ I said: ‘I’m always in control. I’m always paying attention. I was just angry.’ ”


¶On his temper off the field: “My everyday life? I’ve never had a fight in my life. Because I can take them down with words just as easy, and that’s how I’ve always fought my battles. But people don’t fight no more. They shoot.”

1 No. Bradley seems angry, but he's not outspoken about his outrage with people like Sheffield is. I suspect they have very different issues that are funneled down the same tube.

The complexities of Milton Bradley and the games that he creates. "Time Bomb" might be a good name for this latest edition.
