8/28 Morning person

Apparently, Milton Bradley is not a morning person. The Cubs outfielder said Friday that he’s had a tough time adjusting to day games at Wrigley Field.

“Strange as it may seem, people don’t understand, you play baseball your whole life and you’re on teams and play mostly night games,” Bradley said after Friday’s 5-2 win over the Mets. “You’re getting up at 2 in the afternoon to come to the field to do whatever you have to do. Here, you have to get up at 8 o’clock in the morning to get ready.

“It’s an adjustment for your body,” he said. “You may be ready for it and say, ‘Oh, I can handle it, I can do that.’ Your body is going to tell you something different. It’s an adjustment to get ready and revved up. This is the Major Leagues, it’s not Spring Training. This counts. It’s an adjustment to get ready to go every day. That’s the only thing I can attribute it, too. I’m doing everything else the same.”

What’s weird is that the stats would say he’s done better under the sun. He has a .232 night time average compared to .288 day, and Bradley was batting .304 at Wrigley compared to .208 on the road.

Since July 12, Bradley was batting .356 with four homers and 11 RBIs at Wrigley. Maybe in the second year of his three-year deal, Bradley will feel more comfortable at home during the day?

“Absolutely,” he said. “Hopefully, I have a terrible spring and come into the season and just go off. I used up all my good hits [this year] in Spring Training.”

LAME
Can this guy make any more excuses for his bad performance?
I cant play during the day What the hell is that
The fans don’t like me
Stop complaining and earn your check !
The reason you are doing so bad is because you just cant play
What a waste
I mean even Angel Pegan is hitting better than Bradley
As far as the fans go Racial comments are out of line but
here deserves everything he gets from the fans
He was another just waste of money
Hendry needs to go and so does Bradley (not to mention Gregg,Miles.etc…)

Reason after reason for NOT SIGNING Bradley, hmmm…
Hendry really did his homework on THAT deal. What a genious.
