Padres Risk Little On Bradley
The Padres have ridden their pitching to the top of the National League West, but their offense still could use some help. As a result, San Diego took a chance on volatile Milton Bradley, who was a key part of playoff teams with the Dodgers and the Athletics but wore out his welcome with both clubs. Oakland, which had designated Bradley for assignment before his lack of playing time would become an issue, accepted Triple-A righthander Andrew Brown in return for Bradley on Friday. The A's also will contribute $1.36 million toward the remainder of Bradley's 2007 salary.
