Jose Guillen's power surge is no fluke

While on television today, I was asked to compare "malcontent outfielders" Jose Guillen and Milton Bradley.
I laughed a little, but I answered the question the best way I could on the fly, saying generally nice things about Guillen, a legitimate power hitter with five 20-homer seasons since 2003, and basically ripping Bradley, who in the past five seasons has averaged 96 games played and hit enough to be owned in a standard league in maybe one of those seasons. Attitudes aside, I don't see these players as similar.
