Milton The Terrible is at it again, this time jabbing the Cubs in his interview with ESPN’s Colleen Dominguez.
Jim Hendry, appropriately, is taking a stand against Bradley, sticking up for himself and the Cubs organization. I say, good for him.
“We’re all brought up in life to accept responsibility when we fail, and to judge people by how they act and how they carry themselves when things don’t go well.” “Bradley needs to look in the mirror,” Hendry said.
Who better than Hendry to joust Milton back. It was Hendry, after all, who risked his own neck to sign Bradley, and who stood along side Bradley despite his struggles.
And when the whole fiasco turned into a dumpster fire he did the only thing he could, which was the only option Bradley left him–trading the disgruntled outfielder.
It’s not that Hendry wasn’t deserving of the heat. I called for his head at the time. But this wasn’t the first time or the last time Hendry will hear the backlash of Cubs fans.
But criticism comes with the territory–especially in a baseball-savvy market like Chicago.
