There's conjecture, some news and a whole lot of opinions floating around last night and continuing today in the wake of Milton Bradley getting pulled after his second strikeout last night. We don't have all the facts and we're probably never going to get them. Regardless, I wanted to deliver a simple message:
Do not make much of this right now.
Even if Milton is out of the lineup tonight. The tendency is going to be to blow this matter up into something huge. It might very well be, but it also might be nothing more than a speed bump. We don't know what's going on inside the clubhouse. Milton's an emotional guy and the team is really struggling right now. Give the coaches and Bradley some time to handle whatever situation there is, if any, on their own.
