Padres' Bradley injured by own manager

SAN DIEGO - Padres left-fielder Milton Bradley tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee when he was spun to the ground by his manager Sunday during a blowup with an umpire and will miss the rest of the season.

The diagnosis came from an MRI exam, according to a person with knowledge of the situation, who spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because a formal announcement had yet to be made.

Bradley, who helped spark the wild-card leading Padres during the season's second half, was ejected by Mike Winters. He then hurt his knee during a bizarre scene when manager Bud Black spun him to the ground to keep him from going after the first base umpire in the eighth inning of Sunday's 7-3 loss to Colorado.

The Padres, trying to reach the playoffs for the third straight year, entered Monday night's game at San Francisco with a one-half game lead over Philadelphia in the wild-card race.

After seeing this on TV, I have a different view entirely. Umpires do sometimes cross the line. Maybe this one wasn't Bradley's fault. But still, to get hurt like that and be done for that sucks.
