Milton Bradley To The Cubs

Milton Bradley reached an agreement with the Cubs worth about three years and $30 million.  Bradley, like J.D. Drew, is a good player who doesn't translate well to fantasy baseball.  He's often out of the lineup with an injury, preventing him from racking up counting stats.  And his strong OBP gets ignored in many leagues.  He's being drafted in the 14th round, and Cubs hype could push him up another round.  Three outfielders you can draft later who should be more valuable: Nelson Cruz, Lastings Milledge, and Jayson Werth.

Which brings me to my next point, that the Rangers losing Bradley should lead to a regular job for Cruz.  Cruz is my favorite sleeper for 2009Troy Patterson says he's heading into overhyped territory, a fair point.  But that is more true in the insular world of hardcore fantasy baseball geeks than in the league with your buddies or even in the poorly written $8 magazine you'll surely buy.
