Hellcat Milton Almost Struck Again

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on June 13, 2008

You know it must really suck having to play for the Texas Rangers. I mean they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon and you would have to share the field with a woman that’s named after the most famous maker board games, Milton Bradley.

Bradley stormed out of the Texas Rangers clubhouse after an 11-5 victory Wednesday night over Kansas City and showed his he-woman agility by bounding up four flights of stairs looking for Royals television announcer Ryan Lefebvre.

Hellcat Milton heard what he considered derogative remarks made by Lefebvre on a TV in the Rangers clubhouse.

General manager Jon Daniels and manager Ron Washington were close behind and intercepted Bradley before he reached Lefebvre.

“I don’t want to get necessarily into the details,” Daniels said. “He was upset. Someone who doesn’t know him was passing judgment on TV. It was obvious he was hurt by the comments.”

Bradley never reached Lefebvre, although he was within about 20 feet of him in the TV booth before being led back down to the clubhouse.

There was no incident,” Daniels said.

Upon returning to the clubhouse, Bradley screamed at teammates and broke down in tears like the woman he is.

“I’m tired of people bringing me down,” Bradley whined. “It wears on you. I love you guys, all you guys. I’m strong, but I’m not that strong. All I want to do is play baseball and make a better life for my kid than I had.”

Several of Bradley’s teammates had to console him with aroma therapy and freshly picked flowers after he calmed down.

Milton, you poor baby. Crying in front of your teammates looking for attention just shows that he hasn’t matured one bit. Maybe when he takes off his dress, the media might have a little more respect for him, but I doubt it.

The only person disrespecting poor old Milton is himself. Get a “clue” Milton, or just buy the game from your namesake.

Rangers president Nolan Ryan said that he didn’t hear Lefebvre’s comments on the broadcast but added that Bradley has done an admirable job of trying to put his behavioral problems in the past.

“We’re disappointed that things were said that upset Milton,” Ryan said “From my observations since spring training, he is really trying to change the part of his life that has plagued him during his career. We’re very supportive of that, and we feel as if he’s made great strides.

“It’s an incident that came up, and I think it was handled properly. Milton was upset and disappointed about it, but I’d like to think this is behind us and we’ll move on,” Ryan said.

Lefebvre, who is the son of former major-league manager Jim Lefebvre, said he met with Daniels and Washington about his on-the-air comments but did not talk to Bradley. Lefebvre said the comments were intended to praise Josh Hamilton, who missed nearly four years of professional baseball with cocaine and alcohol additions, rather than tear down Bradley.

“It was a conversation about how Josh Hamilton has turned his life around and has been accountable for his mistakes,” Lefebvre told The Associated Press. “Right now, it seems like the baseball world and fans are rooting for him. … It doesn’t seem like Milton Bradley has done the same thing in his life.”

The oft-injured Bradley has a history of losing his temper.

He slammed a plastic bottle at the feet of a fan in the right-field seats at Dodger Stadium in 2004 after someone threw it on the field. With San Diego in the pennant chase last September, he tore the ACL in his right knee when he was spun to the ground by Padres manager Bud Black, who was trying to keep him from an umpire.

He was suspended for five games after slamming the bottle and had a four-game suspension for tossing a bag of balls onto the field after an ejection. There was a dugout confrontation with Cleveland manager Eric Wedge during spring training in 2004 before he was traded to Los Angeles.

Bradley claimed umpire Mike Winters baited the player into the confrontation and directed a profanity at him last September. Winters was suspended the final five days of the regular season and didn’t work the post-season.

“We weren’t singling out Milton Bradley,” Lefebvre said. “We also spent a lot of time complimenting Milton Bradley, but that’s not what he heard when he was in the clubhouse.

“We weren’t tearing up Milton Bradley,” he said. “I told [Washington and Daniels] this wasn’t a Milton Bradley rip session, but just based on the pictures we’ve seen in this series of him walking to the dugout all the way to right field, dropping his bat, making gestures to the fans in right field and above the dugout and taunting them. He’s the only person in baseball I know that does that type of stuff.”

Why do the royals have a TV announcer? Does anyone even watch their games? Just seems like wasted money to me.

Now here’s where the story turns even more idiotic. Hellcat Milton said yesterday he wanted to “introduce” himself to Kansas City Royals television announcer Ryan Lefebvre after some negative comments made on the air.

“I came in to watch my at-bat on the video and all of a sudden I heard my name,” Bradley whined Thursday. “It was a spiel like five minutes out of the blue about me. I didn’t think anything he was saying was anything positive.

“I never met him and I heard him talking about me on TV. I was upset and was going to introduce myself. … All I wanted to do was introduce myself and tell him the stuff you’re talking about is uncalled for.”

“I get tired of people only choose to talk about negativity,” he said. “People would automatically assume that if I went to meet that guy that we were going to start fighting. That would be completely out of my character. I never had a fight in my life.”

cough BULLSHIT cough

This is what I think would have occurred:

Bradley: “Hello Sir, my name is Milton Bradley.”
Lefebvre: “Nice to meet you Milton, I am Ryan Lefebvre.”
Bradley: “What did the five fingers say to the face?”
Lefebvre: Shrug
Bradley: “SLAP!”

I learned as a kid that sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me, how come this millionaire hasn’t grasped this concept. And to add insult to injury everything Ryan said about him was true.

Remember I still need “bail” money!!! Click here for details.
