ST. LOUIS - Milton Bradley's season is finished. Perhaps his days with the Cubs are, too.

Chicago suspended the volatile outfielder for the season Sunday, one day after he criticized the team in a newspaper interview.

Bradley, 31, was disciplined for conduct detrimental to the team. GM Jim Hendry said he decided to send Bradley home after learning of his remarks in the Daily Herald of Arlington Heights, Illinois. Bradley was quoted as saying "you understand why they haven't won in 100 years here."

Bradley has two years remaining on a three-year, $30 million contract he signed as a free agent. Hendry said he doesn't know if the relationship can be salvaged.

"The last few days became too much for me to tolerate," he said.
