Bradley Suspended


Seattle Mariners outfielder Milton Bradley has been suspended by the league for his conduct during Saturday’s game against the Boston Red Sox.  Bradley has appealed the one game ban.

 Bradley ended up on second base after doubling in a run during the third inning of Saturday’s contest.  With Bradley at second, Mariners catcher Miguel Olivo was called out on a close play at first base.

The troubled outfielder vehemently disagreed with the call, so much so that Bradley felt inclined to let second base umpire Gerry Davis know face to face.

Major League Baseball has stated that the reason for the suspension was because during the altercation Bradley came into contact with Davis with the brim of his batting helmet.

Bradley is no stranger to issues on and off of the baseball diamond.  In 2009 the outfielder was suspended by the Chicago Cubs for comments he made against the organization.  Bradley also took a leave of absence from the Mariners last season due to personal issues.
