The Cubs' ship, which is sailing into the sunset in 2009, still has some unhappy passengers on board. Right fielder Milton Bradley appears to be one of them.
After going 4-for-4 with his 10th home run Tuesday night, Bradley was still chirping about how difficult it was to play in Chicago.
"It's never a comfort," Bradley said. "It's hard to be comfortable when you know you don't get a hit, you get booed every time. When I go home and look in the mirror, I like what I see. My family is there and you know other people who are very supportive in spite of everything and all the adversity and hatred you feel on a daily basis. I'll be all right, I always have been."
Truth be told, Bradley's erratic season has been a contributing factor to the Cubs' offensive woes in 2009. The outfielder has only 10 home runs and 32 RBIs in 390 plate appearances.
