I sitting at the kitchen table loading up a Triscuit with my sister-in-law's famous chicken salad watching the MLB Network Hot Stove Report. The roundtable discussion is about the Chicago Cubs' signing of OF Milton Bradley to a three-year, $30 million contract.
Out of nowhere, the gentlemen to the far right of my television screen drops a bomb. The signing of Bradley could mean the Cubs could trade Alfonso Soriano!
No one else in the studio blinks. I did pause before putting away the chicken-salad-loaded Triscuit though.
