Milton Bradley's Mystery Date...

... with a shrink. The usually soft-spoken, even-tempered, and all around swell sportsman Milton Bradley is asking for some "me" time.

SEATTLE -- Milton Bradley, baseball's self-described bad guy, has asked his Seattle Mariners for help in dealing with what manager Don Wakamatsu says is "emotional stress" from personal issues. Wakamatsu and general manager Jack Zduriencik said Wednesday that their fiery slugger is out indefinitely until he receives an outside assessment and a plan to address his issues. Milton Bradley didn't blame anybody else this time. Instead he stood up, pointed at himself and asked for help, writes Jim Caple. "It's come to a head," Zduriencik said.

Part of me wishes him a speedy recovery. But this other much crueler part of me feels like quoting Woody Allen here: "There's nothing wrong with (him) that a little Prozac and a polo mallet can't cure."

As a former writer for President Clinton, let me paraphrase, channeling the Big Dog:

"There's nothing wrong with Milton Bradley that can't be cured by what is right with Milton Bradley."
