Cubs suspend Bradley for comments

CHICAGO Cubs outfielder Milton Bradley has been suspended for the final two weeks of the season because of comments he made about being unhappy at the team, officials said on Sunday.

"There have been a lot of issues that we've lived with during the year, but the last few days became too much for me to tolerate," Cubs general manager Jim Hendry told Major League Baseball's official Website. "The only real negativity here is his own production."

Bradley had said in a newspaper interview on Saturday he was not enjoying his first season in Chicago.

"It's just not a positive environment," said Bradley, who played for the Texas Rangers last season. "I need a stable, healthy, enjoyable environment.

"There's too many people everywhere in your face with a microphone asking the same questions repeatedly.

"Everyone is just bashing you. You go out there and play harder than anybody on the field and never get credit for it.

"It's just negativity. And you understand why they haven't won in 100 years here, because it's negative."
