Nats.com reports the team is pursuing Milton Bradley, seriously they say.
Milton Bradley? Is that really necessary? Does the team need more outfielders?
How tough is it? Go get a first baseman, go get Orlando Hudson. Go get another pitcher, maybe, if a good one can be had at a decent price.
Milton Bradley? Someone explain to me what I'm missing about why such a move makes sense, please.
Unrelated to that, Cabrera is apparently Redding? Let me 'splain. He cost about what Redding would have cost and I think it is a solid exchange. Redding is Redding, there isn't much chance of him becoming a hell of a lot better at this stage. Cabrera isn't much better now but seems to at least have a bit more upside. I guess we'll see. At worst, we'll probably see 10 wins and more than a few nailbiting moments.
Oh, and Happy New Year everyone. There are many, many, many things in my life I want to see improve in 2009. The baseball team I follow is high on that list.
