I usually wait for the blogs to start updating before I’ll write a “What they’re saying about . . .” post, but this Milton Bradley business has brought out everyone’s inner-Henny Youngman, and the one-liners are flying.  A sampling:

Jesse Spector: “Cubs getting rid of a guy because he’s a pain in the ass. Mariners getting rid of a guy because he sucks. Advantage, M’s.”

Mike Meech: When Milton Bradley “accidentally” stabs Felix Hernandez in abdomen, youse aren’t gonna think this Jack Z. fella is so smart.

Dave Brown: “Carlos Silva for
Milton Bradley might be the global thermonuclear war of trades. There
are only survivors. And the dead are to envied.

Jonah Keri: “M’s unloaded the bloated, $25 mil corpse of Carlos Silva in Bradley trade. I’d acquire Stalin if it meant ditching Silva.”

Bob Elliott: “Jack Z was having such a great walking-on-water winter … and then he ventured into the risky, thin ice section of the FA lake”

Jonah Keri again“Jack Z is Seattle’s most fruitful commodity since Shawn Kemp.
