Milton Bradley has done it again. The Dodgers problem child was reportedly arrested in Ohio for disorderly conduct, after he told police who had pulled over his friend for swerving on the road, "go ahead and arrest me."They did.

So much for anger management classes.

While the incident in and of itself isn't that big of a deal, Bradley's rap sheet is. Bradley needs to learn that his conduct can be detrimental to the team. By throwing baseballs onto the field, or bottles at fans feet, Bradley risks suspension when the Dodgers need him in the lineup. When Bradley gets pissy with an umpire, he risks losing the benefit of the doubt on calls. When Bradley does anything stupid, he gets peppered by the media with questions, which only further light his fuse and annoy the whole team. Jason Reid knows something about that.

So Milton, go back to anger management. Stay there for the rest of the offseason. Don't come back until spring training. And please, get a grip.
