9/19 Bradley update
Lou Piniella couldn’t say whether Milton Bradley would be available Sunday when the Cubs close the season series against the Cardinals.
“I don’t know,” Piniella said of Bradley, bothered by inflammation in his left knee. “I’m not going to say ‘day to day.'”
The Cubs are short-handed as far as outfielders go with Bradley, Alfonso Soriano (knee) and Reed Johnson (foot) sidelined.
“We’re not going to play people who are hurt,” Piniella said. “We’re awfully thin, though.”
