Bradley Reassigned

OF Milton Bradley was reassigned to Cleveland's AAA affiliate, Buffalo, to prevent wasting a space in the 25-man roster.

The Times reported earlier today that the Dodgers are pursuing a trade for Bradley, and the parts acquired for Romano and Cabrera may be bait.

Update: U.S.S. Mariner links to this ESPN article on Bradley, "the angriest player in baseball". Sheesh. But, reading further on that fine blog, they're interested in Bradley too, and --

So, what do the Indians need?

1. A frontline, major league ready starter.

2. Offensive middle infielders.

3. Catching depth.

There's talk on the Dodger boards that David Ross might be out of tonight's game for a reason. I don't doubt that the M's have more arms to deal, but it's not insignificant that the Dodgers elected to use a moment of weakness to strip them of a pair of interesting options at a crucial moment.

Update: or not. Ross got some swings in; it made no sense to me that they'd lose the only operable backup catcher they had with Hundley starting the year on the DL.
