That's it, Milton Bradley, it's On!

And just so you know, OBP is not a valid Scrabble word.
I've defended and ridiculed Milton Bradley over the past year, leaning heavily toward defending him. But his latest comments have me fired up. His Mariners are back in town to face the White Sox, so now that we're in the same time zone, I'm issuing him a challenge.

It doesn't matter to me that Milton said he was misrepresented or that the middle-aged white media couldn't understand him (they couldn't). I don't care if he says he got along great with his Cubs teammates. His personality as a baseball player is of no concern to me whatsoever.

But Milton says he's an 1180-SATs nerd. And he plays Scrabble. WHAT!!!?!!!?11! It's so on.

If you really do play Scrabble on your phone, I hereby challenge you, Milton, to a game of Words with Friends for the iPhone. My handle is Adambuckled. The stakes: um . . . I don't know. I really can't offer you much. How about a glowing review of your ability to not make outs and a scathing diatribe against Paul Sullivan? Deal?

The gauntlet has been thrown down. Are you nerd enough to challenge me?

P.S. If you Google "Milton Bradley Scrabble," Milton's interview doesn't show up for a long, long time. Apparently that was already a pretty popular search phrase.


  1. Just so we're clear, Milt - middle aged white guys can't related to scrabble? Well what the hell CAN they relate to??

  2. Well played, good sir, well played.


Spill it.
