Cubs still trying to say bye-bye to Bradley

Leave a comment

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.

Brian Dozier’s shot to center got stuck in the wall at Target Field

You don’t see this every day …

Twins second baseman Brian Dozier hit a blast to dead-center field in the first inning of Wednesday afternoon’s game against the Tigers and it neither cleared the fence, nor banged off the fence, nor dropped in front of it.

Instead, the ball found a comfortable home inside the wall …

This isn’t the first wall-sticker for Dozier. He put a ball in the bullpen fence in Washington during an exhibition game against the Nationals back in 2016.
