They say the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.
If you had May 6 in your "When Will the Milton Bradley Experiment Blow Up" office pool, consider yourself a winner.
Per yesterday's announcement by the Mariners, Bradley, the self-described Kanye West of Major League Baseball, will be taking some time off to work on his "personal issues."
This following his latest on-field tantrum Tuesday night, when depending on your source, he was either removed from play, or walked out mid-game after a verbal tiff with manager Don Wakamatsu.
On Wednesday, an apparently contrite Bradley sat down with team leadership and asked for help, reports the Seattle Times. Mariner's GM Jack Zduriencik obliged by placing him on the restricted list, which will have him out of uniform for the next eight games at least.
