Monday AM Quick Hits

Let's start this Monday with some rumors:

Last Friday the guys talked about the Milton Bradley trade on MLB Network's Hot Stove:

  • Herold Reynolds thinks this is an interesting move for the Mariners. The talent is there, and Herold, who is a former M, says that if Milton can't get along with the people in Seattle, he's not going to get along with anybody.
  • "This is it for Milton Bradley," Reynolds said.
  • Mitch Williams said that sooner or later Bradley will have to understand that it's his problem, not everybody else in baseball that has the problem.
  • Bradley's batting average is much better in the American League.
  • Tom Verducci says that the reason for his better play in the AL is that he has played for two big market teams in the NL and he doesn't fit there. Also, Bradley needs the DH spot to get more playing time because he can't play in the outfield every day.
  • Jack Zduriencik, the Mariners General Manager, thinks that Seattle is a great place to be. Seattle was looking for a middle of the lineup fielder. Jack says, "This guy once to win."
  • He talked to some of the guys in the M's organization and everyone said that this guy can play, this guy can hit. Just let him do his thing.
  • Ken Griffey has a great personality, he's a leader, and he has great leadership skills. Griffey will lead the whole ball club in the right direction.

That's it for now, there's more to come!


  1. I WANT ANKIEL!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Out of the options we have left, Ankiel might be the best. I will have a numbers breakdown up soon comparing the Cubs center field targets.

  3. He would be a perfect fit for the Cubbies.
