Milton Bradley Owes Back Rent

The good news for clubhouse cancer Bradley: MLB contracts, unlike NFL ones, are guanteed. The bad news: so are condo leases. Bradley's getting sued by his Chicago landlord for failing to pay up.

Everyone knew following his latest controversy-plagued season that Bradley's days in Chicago were over. Maybe that's why he stopped paying rent in October, two months before he was actually traded.

His $15,000-a-month luxury condo on Chicago's Magnificent Mile has been empty since he "abandoned the Leased Premises on or about Oct. 12, 2009," according to the lawsuit. The realty company sent him an invoice in November, but he hasn't cut a check yet. So they're suing him for rent, late fees and interest, and plan to keep charging him for the life of the lease.

You'd think Bradley would know how renting works by now. After eight teams in 11 years, I can't imagine he's ever bought a house.
