Bradley's Mammoth Shot
Milton was the talk of the town last night with the moonshot to replace all moonshots...one of the farthest non-steroid enhanced home runs I've ever seen. You can see the video at MLB.com. The story coming out this morning was that he may have been jawing with some of the fans in the on-deck circle and right at the end of the clip you can see him put his hand to his ear as if to say, "oh now you love me". Bradley may have been addressing it to the whole crowd, but with the little head nod at the end accompanied by the "we'll shut up now" looks on the faces of the clowns with the good seats, it looks more like a little give and take with the Wrigley faithful. Screen grabs after the jump....
It's all games and smiles and puppy dog tails as long as the Cubs are winning. In 2006, Bradley takes the bat and Al Capone's them.
UPDATE: Reader Chris points out this is actually now a pattern for Milton. His other home run at Wrigley against the Marlins he shooshes the crowd around the 0:36 mark of this clip. There's some yelling and laughing by the fans right as it happens, so not sure if he directed it at someone or this is going to be Milton being Milton.
