Tech’s Bradley goes 15th to Milwaukee

One day after presumably his final college game, Georgia Tech pitcher Jed Bradley stood to become a wealthy man.

Bradley, a junior pitcher for the Yellow Jackets, was selected 15th overall Monday by the Milwaukee Brewers in the first round of the major league baseball draft. He became Tech’s 10th first-round pick and its second in as many years following Deck McGuire going 11th to Toronto last season.

By coincidence, last year’s 15th pick was Jake Skole of Blessed Trinity High. Skole, the younger brother of Tech star Matt Skole, had signed to play football and baseball at Tech but took the Texas Rangers’ $1.557 million signing bonus to go the pro baseball route.

Tech coach Danny Hall has said, given Bradley’s expected high draft position, that he doesn’t expect him to return for his senior season. Tech’s season ended Sunday night with a loss to Mississippi State in an NCAA regional tournament held at Tech.

University of Georga…..I am so sick of this fish wrapper. Constantly, you insult Tech, the Falcons, the Braves……..I know that they send a buncha $$ your way. I’m a Falcon fan and when I hope to read about x’s and o’s I instead get billy bob went to Georgia. I hate Georgia. I have never met ANYBODY with a licka sense from that school. They can’t back anything that school has ever done athletically. You pee when you see a Gator, but when you beat Tech, you call that a good year? Good Lord, stupid.

There is gotta be something good about UGA, although no one has ever found it, no wait, for fat girls their cheerleaders don’t sweat all that much.

Wow, the jealousy of UGA is astounding. What makes you geeks think i’m a Dawg fan? I just enjoy calling a spade a spade. Your “athletes” are no more qualified to enter an institute of higher learning than I am of being an astronaut. Spare me your hypocrisy, nerds.
