Say What You Want About Bradley, But You Have To Admire This

9

From the piece (bolds mine):: After playing for six teams in the previous eight seasons, Bradley said he was tired of being a "rent-a-player" and felt like Wrigley Field was the perfect landing spot. "As much as we courted him, I've never seen a player court us like he did," Cubs Chairman Crane Kenney told fans at the Cubs Convention. "He was scouting us in the third game of the division series , sitting in Los Angeles trying to figure out where he would play in our lineup, and he left himself, basically, with no escape clause. "He was negotiating with us and really didn't have a safety net. This is a guy who chose Chicago and the pressure and the limelight. I don't think he expects to fail. He wants to be a Cub." This is just fantastic. I might be a sucker, but things like this make me want a Bradley jersey for the season. I hope he succeeds beyond his---and our---wildest dreams. - TL
