What to Do With Milton? Play Him!

May 5, 2010, 3:30 PM | Updated: Apr 4, 2011, 7:55 pm

If the Mariners want to truly get to Milton, I say they call his bluff. Put him in the game and force him to play. This way, maybe he’ll bring a little fire to the order, and if he doesn’t show up – they can dump his contract!

If the Mariners truly want to evaluate him, and maybe give him a mulligan milton bradleyon this one (as my cohort, Jim Moore would), then this is the perfect situation.

Besides…isn’t it a bit of punishment to face the Rays anyway? Let’s see what he can do in this kind of situation! We all knew what we were getting when it comes to Milton Bradley – that’s why I say put him on the field and see what he can do!
