Oh, Milton Bradley, No

So Milton Bradley has a reputation as a bad dude. He was widely acknowledged as bad dude when he played and, now that he retired (against his will), it seems he’s a bad dude after his playing days are done.

Your friends at TMZ have the latest on Milton Bradley and an alleged string of assaults on his wife. The long-time big league outfield faces as much as 13 years behind bars after “five different incidents” resulting in a litany of charges.

The charges break down like this: 4 counts of spousal battery, 4 counts of criminal threats, 2 counts of assault with a deadly weapon, 2 counts of vandalism and 1 count of dissuading a witness from making a report.

This is bad. Very bad. Count me among those who believed Milton Bradley was misunderstood during his playing days. Blackballed in the baseball world for being a misanthrope is one thing; this is a whole ‘nother level of scumbaggery.

If he is found guilty, there is no misunderstanding and sportswriter apologizing. I hope Milton Bradley gets a fair trial and I hope is wife is safe, not necessarily in that order.

  1. Damn. I always used to make excuses for the crazy stuff he did while playing because i too though he was a bit of a misunderstood character, but with that many accounts of abuse, this is clearly indefensible. Why do athletes have to be such idiots sometimes?

  2. I assume he’ll go directly to jail and not collect $200?

    • Clever.

      But swift justice should be served if true. I have no respect for garbage like that.

  3. Welcome to the Assembly of People I Hope Terrible Things Happen To. Please take a seat near Brett Myers, and close to Josh Lueke.
