Wakamatsu hasn't talked to Bradley

ARLINGTON -- Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu said he hasn't seen enough evidence in regard to two incidents involving Milton Bradley with Texas fans on Friday night to have a discussion with the controversial outfielder.

Various media outlets reported that Bradley made an obscene gesture toward fans in the outfield in the fourth inning of Friday's loss to the Rangers. After he popped out in the eighth, The Associated Press reported that Bradley "glared for about 10 seconds" at fans who were jeering at him from behind the dugout.

"I didn't see it so I can't comment until I see it," Wakamatsu said. "I didn't talk to him, no. Somebody said there's some video of it, and once I see that, we'll obviously talk."

Bradley, who didn't appear at his locker in the visitor's clubhouse after Friday's game, is off to a rough start, batting .059 for the season. He went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Friday.

"He's putting a lot of pressure on himself," Wakamatsu said.

Wakamatsu, who mentioned playing with Barry Bonds when asked about Bradley becoming a possible distraction, said veterans on the Mariners won't let it happen.

"It's about the club, it's not about things not pertaining to baseball," Wakamatsu said.
