CHICAGO — After playing one game at far less than full speed, Chicago Cubs outfielder Milton Bradley said Thursday he’s not close to returning from a lingering groin injury. “I want to say I am, but I’m not,” Bradley told Cubs.com.
Bradley has not spoken to the media in at least a week. He spoke to Cubs.com because it is affiliated with the Cubs’ organization, the Web site said. Speaking of the fourth estate, the at-times-volatile Bradley accused Chicago’s media of trying to make him “snap,” a remark that comes on the heels of his ejection for arguing a called third strike during his April 16 pinch-hitting appearance, and the subsequent two-game suspension for making contact with umpire Larry Vanover. “I’m just not into negativity,” he said. “I can see already I’m going to be that guy that since nothing else is going on in here, ‘We’re going to harp on Bradley all year and see if we can get him to snap.’ I’m not going to go for it. You can’t get a good story if I don’t talk to [the media]. You’ll make something up, like you always do.” “If I talk to you, you’re going to make something up, and if I don’t talk to you, you’re going to make something up. So just go ahead and make something up and leave me out of it.” -ESPN
