Milton's positive take on things

Here's what Gammons reports:

As for Bradley, when A's manager Bob Geren told him his playing time would be limited, with Nick Swisher, Mark Kotsay and Travis Buck in the outfield and Jack Cust crushing at DH, he says he asked to be traded. "They were frustrated by my injuries, and I don't blame them," says Bradley. "I was frustrated, too. I want to play. I want to win. I'm a free agent at the end of the season, and I'd like to play.

"The A's were good about this. The original trade was to Kansas City, and I told Dayton Moore that I had an oblique problem and might not be able to play for a few days. So the deal was off. But as it turned out, San Diego might be the perfect place. We really have a chance to win here."

Seems to me like this quote illustrates that MB was not the jerk or cancer that so many made/make him out to be. I don't have any doubt that he's hot-headed (and that he manifested it after the news from Geren). But then again, I don't think any of us have any doubt that BB is hot-headed too.

Just makes me sad that things didn't work out between him and the A's. He was for me the most fun A's position player to watch. I won't be surprised if MB helps take SD to the Series.
