Andre, You're Nothing to Me Now

Via Dodger Thoughts comes this AP article on Milton Bradley:

The 28-year-old Bradley has yet to produce a true breakthrough season - and that coupled with his mercurial personality made him expendable for the Los Angeles Dodgers two years ago. A's general manager Billy Beane took a calculated risk to upgrade his roster before the 2006 season, though he lost nothing to acquire the switch-hitting Bradley.

Hmmm, I think Andre Ethier might differ on the "lost nothing" part of that equation. Just another media report perpetuating Billy Beane's godlike status.

I too was perplexed by this paragraph when reading the same story earlier today.

Bradley: 351 AB, 115 OPS+
Ethier: 396 AB, 113 OPS+

Say what?
