Cubs Milton Bradley Suspended for Rest of Season

Chicago Cubs outfielder Milton Bradley has been suspended for the rest of the season.

"The last few days became too much for me to tolerate," General Manager Jim Hendry said Sunday.

"I'm certainly not going to let our great fans become excuses," Hendry said. "I'm not going to tolerate [Bradley] not being able to answer questions from the media respectably."

This was after Bradley's encounter Thursday when reporters asked him about taking himself out of the game without a pinch runner ready following a hit.

Apparently, the last straw came when he criticized the Cubs in a Daily Herald interview on Saturday.
