Milton Bradley was expected to meet with MLB disciplinarian Bob Watson during the Cubs’ two-game trip to Houston, which starts Wednesday. Bradley is appealing a two-game suspension issued after he allegedly made contact with home plate umpire Larry Vanover during an argument. The Cubs feel Bradley should’ve been fined, since video replays show the outfielder barely touched Vanover. The contact appears to only be made by the bill of his cap.
