Cleveland decided talent wasn't enough of a reason to keep Milton Bradley. The outfielder hit over .300 last season and was expected to bat cleanup this season, but had a confrontation with Eric Wedge last year amongst other people, and also had a problem with the law in the offseason.

That was the last straw for Cleveland. The Indians shipped Bradley to the...

If Indians GM Mark Shapiro was Donald Trump and Milton Bradley was a contestant on The Apprentice, Bradley would have gotten the patented "You're Fired."

Even though Dennis Northcutt is under contract to play three more years with Cleveland, his agent, Jerome Stanley, says that time is up.

He was a second-round pick four years ago, and the...
