Cubs suspend Milton Bradley for rest of season

Posted:

ST. LOUIS (AP)(KWWL) -- The Chicago Cubs have suspended volatile outfielder Milton Bradley for the rest of the season, one day after he criticized the team in a newspaper interview.

Bradley was disciplined Sunday for conduct detrimental to the team. General manager Jim Hendry says he decided to send Bradley home after learning of the player's remarks in the Daily Herald of suburban Arlington Heights. Bradley, scratched from Saturday's lineup due to left knee soreness, was quoted as saying "you understand why they haven't won in 100 years here."

Bradley, who was hitting .257 with 12 homers and 40 RBIs, has two years remaining on a three-year, $30 million contract that he signed as a free agent last offseason. Hendry said he didn't know if the relationship was "fixable."
