8/20 Milton & Muppets

Milton Bradley didn’t want to talk after Wednesday’s game, so there’s no telling what was going on between the Cubs outfielder and the fan at PETCO Park who was razzing him during the game.

After Bradley homered, he then made a “talking” sign with his hand as he headed back to the dugout. Lou Piniella called it a “Muppet conversation.”

“You can have a little fun once in a while,” Piniella said, “but you would prefer they concentrate on the game at hand.”

Did Piniella ever have those kind of run-ins with fans?

“On rare occasions, but I had fun with it,” Piniella said. “[Bradley] was having fun with him, more than anything else.”
