7/25 Trade winds
There was a rumor circulating Saturday that the Tigers were interested in Cubs outfielder Milton Bradley. Problem is, the person who posted the rumor didn’t ask anyone from the Cubs. That didn’t seem to stop others from taking that rumor and saying it was true.
It’s not true, Cubs officials say, and, fact is, the GMs of the two teams have not talked at all about Bradley or anyone else in recent days.
Bradley, who hit his first career pinch-hit homer in the eighth of the Cubs’ 5-3 win over the Reds, was asked about the speculation postgame.
“I don’t pay attention to rumors,” he said. “I’m one of those guys who is multi-talented and can do a lot of things, so I’m not surprised. It’s just a rumor.”
