Cubs still trying to say bye-bye to Bradley

Another scoop from Will Carroll of Baseball Prospectus:



Cubs signing of Mike Cameron is waiting on deal of Milton Bradley, which has been “imminent” for about 72 hours.



This echoes what Gordon Wittenmeyer of the Sun-Times wrote yesterday. In turn, this morning, Jon Heyman of SI.com “tweeted” that the Rays and Cubs were “not close” on the long-rumored Milton Bradley-for-Pat Burrell trade. Apparently the three-way option of Luis Castillo from the Mets is “not helping things.”



We’ve seen the Mets and Cubs linked
together throughout this process as they look for a third partner. It’s
pretty hard to see Burrell as a great return for New York considering
he’s a pretty bad left fielder, hasn’t played first base since 2000,
and only hits home runs
against the Mets.
