Former Chicago Cubs outfielder Milton Bradley said he followed general manager Jim Hendry's advice and looked in the mirror as he tried to get help for dealing with pressure and anger issues.

"When Jim Hendry told me to look in the mirror, I did," Bradley told ESPN.com's Elizabeth Merrill. "That was a guy who gave me a big contract, and instilled a lot of trust and belief in me. I never disrespected Jim, and things didn't work out. I know he had insurmountable pressure on him as well. He had to do what he had to do. When he said it, I just didn't blow it off. I took it to heart, and it weighed on me. And I'm doing what I've got to do."
