Bradley suspended for rest of regular season

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Dodgers outfielder Milton Bradley was suspended for the rest of the regular season by Major League Baseball on Wednesday, a day after a bottle-throwing tantrum during a win over Colorado.

Los Angeles leads the NL West by three games over San Francisco with five games left. Unless appealed, the penalty was set to start for Wednesday night's game against the Rockies at Dodger Stadium.

Bradley also was fined an undisclosed amount by Bob Watson, baseball's vice president of on-field operations. Earlier this season, Bradley was suspended for four games after throwing a bag of balls onto the field following an ejection.

Bradley was hitting .267 with 19 home runs and 67 RBIs in his first season with Los Angeles. His temper was one of the reasons Cleveland traded him to the Dodgers right before opening day.

On Tuesday night, Bradley was thrown out of the game after a fan threw a plastic bottle at him shortly after his two-out error on Mark Sweeney's liner with the bases loaded.

Bradley picked up the bottle, left his position in right field and angrily approached the stands -- appearing to yell at a fan. He then slammed the bottle into the front row of the stands.

Several Dodgers players came out to right field and tried to calm down Bradley, who was arguing with umpire Jim Joyce and was ejected.

As Bradley walked from right field to the Dodgers' dugout, he took his jersey and hat off. With the crowd behind the dugout booing, Bradley gestured with palms up, urging the fans on.

The game was delayed for about four minutes. Los Angeles rallied for five runs in the bottom of the ninth to win 5-4

:party-smiley-018: way to go league.

This and all other acts should not be tolerated by the leauge, he might make more money than the guy in the stands, but he should learn how to act more respectable.

How did he get 4 games for dumping all of the balls onto the field earlier this year and 5 for this...shouldve been longer on both counts, this guys a bit of a hothead.

Your right the suspension should be a bit longer and maybe until next year for a bit, with some anger management.

Luckly that bottle that he did throw towards the fan was a plastic bottle, and not a glass one, it oculd have gotten very ugly very fast if it was a glass botle.
