|Cubs' Bradley Apologizes for Comments, Actions
|MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Suspended Cubs outfielder Milton Bradley has apologized for behavior that led to general manager Jim Hendry's decision to banish him for the rest of the season.
Bradley says he was driven to bring a championship to Cubs' fans and expected to have a great year when he signed a $30 million, three-year contract in the offseason.
But Bradley struggled and was booed loudly at Wrigley Field while hitting .257 with 12 homers and 40 RBIs. He says his frustration and disappointment caused him to act in a way he regrets.
The Cubs suspended Bradley on Sunday, and Chicago had won three in a row heading into Wednesday's action.
