It's anger management day at SoSG! We noted Milton Bradley's latest tantrum this weekend, wondering why Cubs manager Lou Piniella felt the need to single out this incident in a season that has featured so many. Upon further inspection, it turns out Bradley is able to calm down right quick. From the Chicago Sun-Times:
According to sources, Piniella then shouted at Bradley, "You're not a player! You're a piece of sh--!"
Bradley then said, "I have too much respect for you to respond to that," a source said.
Which I find fairly amazing. One second Bradley's destroying a water cooler and the next he's levelheaded enough not to pop off to the manager who just called him a piece of shit? Where were those compartmentalization skills during the infamous Dodger Stadium water bottle incident? Or does this count as maturation? I'm confused.
