BDD: Title Does Dictate Behavior
At Baseball Digest Daily, I point out that, despite the screeching about Milton Bradley’s gaffes yesterday, we actually really like them.
This is the storyline that we as fans want, though. We would much rather see two teams of nine Milton Bradleys square off than two teams of David Ecksteins. Remember, besides the whole hunting-down-the-broadcaster thing, everything Bradley has done has been done before. Others have flipped the ball to the fans with less than three outs; others have engaged in heated arguments with umpires; others have dropped easy fly balls. None of them, however, did it with the flair of our temperamental Cubs outfielder.
