Is Milton Bradley the real Kenny Powers? If you recognize the name then you have most likely seen the hilarious HBO sports comedy “Eastbound & Down” where Danny McBride plays a washed up, and seriously vulgar, ex-pitcher trying to make it back to the majors. The funny thing is that in the show Kenny Powers finished his career in Seattle, the same city where Mr. Bad Boy of Baseball is currently residing.
So here we are 7 games in to the 2010 MLB season and Milton Bradley has more immature outbursts then he has hits (2 outbursts, 1 hit) and you have to wonder if the 31-year old traveler has hit rock bottom. He is currently 1-for-22 (.045 BA) with 2 RBIs and a SLG of .182 for a Mariners team that is already in the AL West cellar.
It is heartbreaking enough to see my Mariners starting off so bad, do I need to read stories about bats being shattered and fans being flipped off? I guess this is more of a rant then a card related story, but I needed to get it off my chest.
