'Mr. Milton Bradley, can I ask you a question?'

Wed, May 5

According to one report, Expos Indians Dodgers Athletics Padres Rangers Cubs Mariners outfielder Milton Bradley struck out twice and then left the stadium a couple innings before the end of Seattle's loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday night (perhaps Eric Byrnes gave him a pedi-cab ride home). The interesting thing is, Bradley is supposed to appear Wednesday afternoon with Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu, Ichiro, Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Sweeney at an elementary school education day event. Wonder what questions the kids will ask?

"Mr. Bradley, the way the Mariners are struggling for runs, why did you look at that belt-high fastball right down the shoot for strike three with the bases loaded last night?''

"Mr. Bradley, why did you raise that one finger to the fans? Were you asking to go to the bathroom?''

"Mr. Bradley, could you take a photo with my Flat Stanley when you sign with your next couple teams?''

"Mr. Bradley, can you get me a ticket to the Kanye West concert?"

Or, more likely, the question might be:

"Mr. Wakamatsu, where is Mr. Bradley?''
