Bradley upset with comments by Royals announcer
9 minutes ago

Buzz Up PrintKANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)—Milton Bradley stormed out of the Texas Rangers clubhouse after an 11-5 victory Wednesday night over Kansas City and bounded up four flights of stairs looking for Royals television announcer Ryan Lefebvre.

Bradley, who was the designated hitter, heard what he considered derogatory remarks made by Lefebvre on a TV in the Rangers clubhouse.

General manager Jon Daniels and manager Ron Washington were close behind and intercepted Bradley before he reached Lefebvre.

“I don’t want to get necessarily into the details,” Daniels said. “He was upset. Someone who doesn’t know him was passing judgment on TV. It was obvious he was hurt by the comments.”

Bradley never reached Lefebvre, although he was within about 20 feet of him in the TV booth before being led back down to the clubhouse.

“There was no incident,” Daniels said.

Upon returning to the clubhouse, Bradley screamed at teammates and broke down in tears.

“I’m tired of people bringing me down,” Bradley said. “It wears on you. I love you guys, all you guys. I’m strong, but I’m not that strong. All I want to do is play baseball and make a better life for my kid than I had.”

Several of Bradley’s teammates consoled him after he calmed down.

Lefebvre, who is the son of former major league manager Jim Lefebvre, said he met with Daniels and Washington about his on-the-air comments, but did not talk to Bradley. Lefebvre said the comments were intended to praise Josh Hamilton, who missed nearly four years of professional baseball with cocaine and alcohol additions, rather than tear down Bradley.

“It was a conversation about how Josh Hamilton has turned his life around and has been accountable for his mistakes,” Lefebvre told The Associated Press. “Right now, it seems like the baseball world and fans are rooting for him. … It doesn’t seem like Milton Bradley has done the same thing in his life.”

The oft-injured Bradley has a history of losing his temper.

He slammed a plastic bottle at the feet of a fan in the right-field seats at Dodger Stadium in 2004 after someone threw it on the field. With San Diego in the pennant chase last September, he tore the ACL in his right knee when he was spun to the ground by Padres manager Bud Black, who was trying to keep him from an umpire.

He was suspended for five games after slamming the bottle, and had a four-game suspension for tossing a bag of balls onto the field after an ejection. There was a dugout confrontation with Cleveland manager Eric Wedge during spring training in 2004 before getting traded to Los Angeles.

Bradley claimed umpire Mike Winters baited the player into the confrontation and directed a profanity at him last September. Winters was suspended the final five days of the regular season and didn’t work the postseason.

“We weren’t singling out Milton Bradley,” Lefebvre said. “We also spent a lot of time complimenting Milton Bradley, but that’s not what he heard when he was in the clubhouse.

“We weren’t tearing up Milton Bradley. I told (Washington and Daniels) this wasn’t a Milton Bradley rip session, but just based on the pictures we’ve seen in this series of him walking to the dugout all the way to right field, dropping his bat, making gestures to the fans in right field and above the dugout and taunting them. He’s the only person in baseball I know that does that type of stuff.”

he didn't really say anything. frank white said that hamilton would be a good role model for bradley, and lefevbre said that it was inspiring that if you work on your problems you can turn you life around, and contrasted that to bradley who's had behavioral problems everywhere he went.

it's ironic that bradley responded to criticism of behavioral problems by flying off the handle and storming up to the press box to try and kick a commentator's @$$. way to refute him, milton

Sure enough, I agree mostly. However, if you think somebody at work talked shit about you, don't you go call them out? Plus, you don't give millions of people a chance to hear it. As great as Hamilton is, and is pretty darn good, he has had worse problems than Milton. Just a fact. If you had to bet who, out of those two, would flip things up, and not be playing next year....who would not pick JH? Bradley may be a prick, but he should have had a chance to express his opinion too. There wouldn't be tons of people listening either.

so basically you think that anytime anyone is critical of an athlete they should have to do so at peril of getting stomped into oblivion. what the hell do we have commentators for then?

He didn't have anything to apologize for. Everything he said was factual. you want to call someone out because you are a pansy who cant take anyone saying anything bad about you then do it into a microphone.

I guess that's where my opinion differs. If Ryan wasn't acting like a junior high kid talking shit about numerous people he doesn't know at all, then the problem wouldn't exist.

OK, what did Ryan say about Milton Bradly that wasn't "acting like an adult"? I was listening, and didn't hear anything that wasn't true.

Discussing a player's well-known, well-reported history of behavioral problems is not "talking shit", and Bradley needs to grow the f*ck up. He's making himself look like a ticking time bomb, and like he doesn't have either the brains or the guts to take an honest look in the mirror.

Bradley's never been in that kind of hot water either personally or concerning his Major League Baseball tenure. And obviously he feels as though he's put his problems behind him.

To breakdown in front of your teammates doesn't signify anger.

By itself, no. When you're behaving in a manner that stadium security deems posting a KCPD officer outside the broadcast facility as necessary, it's a red flag. When you are described as "screaming" at your teammates afterward, and have a proved history of a bad temper (attacking fans in the stands?? WTF?) that's the way to bet. :thumb:

My problem with it is this, if you talk, you walk. Maybe he didn't say anything terrible about Milton. Still, if he was offended by it, give him a chance to talk to Le-Rump Ranger-e. I would like this stuff to happen more often in reality.Simmer down, lil' Milt.

It will do a lot more than you think. Milton has not many problems, other than getting pissed off. You don't want any fire from the dummies that the Royals have. The Rangers are doing pretty well with what they have. They have always needed how to figure out how to get some lock-down pitching. A-Rod, Gonzalez in his prime? Don't give me shit about "juice" either. I am sure plenty of current Royals have dabbled.

I know Bradley's an ass but I kind of thought it was odd when I heard him talking about Bradley in the same thought as Hamilton. I mean, we're talking apple's and oranges here (or maybe drugs and temper tantrums). Hamilton's a great story but I think it was poor judgement to throw Bradley in with him.

By itself, no. When you're behaving in a manner that stadium security deems posting a KCPD officer outside the broadcast facility as necessary, it's a red flag.

That was precautionary.
The man was upset and I'm guessing quite a bit bigger than Lefebvre.
That's just smart business.

When you are described as "screaming" at your teammates afterward

I'm wondering why those same teammates consoled him when all was said and done? Certainly not because he screamed on them. His General Manager understood him being upset over RL's comments.

I don't think so.

There was a study done by Harvard U. a couple of years ago that showed cell phone usage increased the liklihood of an accident by 4-5 times.

While they haven't done one on Text Messaging, that requires far more of your attention than talking on a phone. I wouldn't be surprised to see it was far higher when it comes to IM's.

Either way, it's a very ignorant thing to do, which is why a number of states have banned it.

Here's a nice little write up on a study that shows otherwise:

http://www.duiblog.com/2006/11/15/alcohol-vs-cell-phone-which-is-more-dangerous/

Here's a link to the PDF of the study itself, if you want to whine about the methodology:

http://www.psych.utah.edu/AppliedCognitionLab/DrivingAssessment2003.pdf

Results? Drivers conversing on a cell phone were involved in more rear-end collisions, and their reactions were 8% slower relative to normal baseline; it also took them 15% longer to return to normal speed. By contrast, drivers who were at or above .08% blood-alcohol levels showed no higher accident rates than normal, nor did they exhibit significant variation from normal baselines for reaction times or return to normal speeds.


And from the conclusion:

Taken together, we found that both intoxicated drivers and cell-phone drivers performed differently from baseline, and that the driving profiles of these two conditions differed. Drivers in the cell-phone condition exhibited a sluggish behavior (i.e., slower reactions) which they attempted to compensate for by increasing their following distance. Drivers in the alcohol condition exhibited a
more aggressive driving style, in which they followed closer, necessitating braking with greater force. With respect to traffic safety, our data are consistent with Redelmeier and Tibshirani’s (1997) earlier estimates. In fact, when controlling for driving difficulty and time on task, cell-phone drivers may actually exhibit greater impairments (i.e., more accidents and less responsive driving behavior) than legally intoxicated drivers. These data also call into question driving regulations that prohibit hand-held cell-phones and permit hands-free cell-phones, because no significant differences were found in the impairments to driving caused by these two modes of cellular communication.


I can back up my claim about DUI-Cell Phone use. How about you? :rolleyes:

edit- smittysbar, you make a great point in the following post.

Not that it matters much. All I said in my original point was one was as "dumb" as the other. I didn't bring up accident rates or that one was as "bad" as the other.

The key to dealing with anger issues is to realize that ONLY YOU can cause yourself to get angry. Once you admit that, then you can control situations like this.

Life in the spot light. He gets paid huge amounts of money, people talk, it's part of it. From actors to athletes, it comes with the teritory. If it's to much for him he could give the money back and get a real job and live life under the radar.

MB is a bitch and he just keeps proving it

That is the reality of life in the line of business he's in, but that hardly makes it right for people to knitpick and pass judgment on athletes and celebrities ad nauseum. Over the last 5 years it's gotten out of hand.

I'm not an apologist for Britney Spears either, but the media has really done a number on her.

Good thing he didn't make it to the booth. Ryan would kick his ass. He played college baseball, and he's no puss.

Milton is current day version of Jimmy Piersall.

Look it up.

Right, wanna take bets bro? BTW it's all in fun.

It's not just life in the spot light, it's life everywhere. Just usually on a much smaller scale. There's not a person I know with any nuts that wouldn't confront someone who they felt did them wrong. There's just different levels of aggression when doing it. And, as Micjones stated, we have NO idea what his intentions were.

She does it to herself. She puts herself in these positions OVER and OVER.

The whole of this thread was should Bradley get a face to face with a mouthpiece? I say yes.

Having to be escorted back should clue you in

She absolutely has to own her role in what she's become, but the media pores over everything she does. It's insane. You have to wonder on some level if that kind of attention and scrutiny adds to an individual's sense of entitlement and the attitude that they're "above the law".

That doesn't mean that he would absolutely have assaulted Lefebvre.
That was preemptive. That's the wise thing to do when someone's upset.
Remove them so the situation doesn't escalate.

at least a drunk is looking at the ****ing road you dumb ****

That matters when their depth perception is off doesn't it?
I guess if you can't win the argument you just start calling people names?
BRILLIANT!

He was "escorted" back because in the right situation he would pounded Le fag.

I am not saying that he would have or would not have hit him. What I am saying is he flew off the handle once again. He was escorted back because he lost his temper. He was over the top or he would not have broke down in the locker room after returning.

Sorry, but I'll take someone with an impaired depth perception over some jackass not even looking at the road.

I am not trying to win an argument hell didn't know we were arguing. You should seek anger management classes with MB :D

I agree 100%

I think this all stems from his mother naming him Milton.
