Milton Bradley blog on New York Times website (Reg required)

http://bats.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/07/07/milton-bradley-what-have-i-done-now/index.html?ref=sports

Milton Bradley, the Texas Rangers’ designated hitter, was named to his first All-Star team and will play for the American League at Yankee Stadium next week. He will contribute occasional items to the New York Times’s Bats blog about his All-Star experience. This is his first post.

At about 10:45 a.m. on Sunday, I was in the clubhouse in Baltimore in the middle of a domino game with Eddie Guardado, Gary Pettis, and Eric Hurley. Ron Washington was standing over my shoulder talking trash like he always does and had everybody laughing hysterically when he asked me to come see him in his office for a minute.

I dropped everything and headed to his office wondering: "What have I done now?"

He gave me the news and a congratulatory hug, with a smile, but told me to keep the news quiet until it was officially announced. I went back to the domino game like nothing happened but Eddie being the wise vet already knew what’s up. He just smiled and gave me dap on making my first All-Star team.
