We'll have plenty more to come online tonight and in the paper tomorrow, but the long and short of it is that Lou told Milton Bradley to take a hike today. But look for Bradley to be in tomorrow's starting lineup.
Bradley apparently pitched a fit in the Cubs' dugout after flying out in the sixth inning.
"I told him to take his uniform off," Lou said. "He threw his helmet and smashed a water cooler, water flying all over. I just told him to take his uniform off and go home. I followed him up into the clubhouse, and we exchanged some words."
Lou added that he had seen enough and that he'd talk more with Milton tomorrow.
Apparently, the Cubs feel that Bradley is acting selfishly. GM Jim Hendry talked with us in the runway after the game and said he wanted players to be "all in."
I pressed him on that, and he said that "all in" means all for the team. Some of Bradley's teammates also are beginning to wonder.
Hendry also said he'd talk with Bradley tomorrow.
Bradley was bound to be a project from the day the Cubs signed him. He figures to be a project until the day he leaves, whenever that might be.
