Same old Radke

Postby bellings » Fri Mar 03, 2006 6:46 pm

Looks we will get more of the same from Radke this year: "Against Twins starter Brad Radke, Encarnacion hit a two-run shot in the first inning."

If there was a fantasy setup that was inning-changes instead of daily-changes, Radke would take a huge bump up by simply starting him from the 2nd inning on. ;-D

Yeah, but when a player is known for something bad, and it continues during Spring Training, that can't be a good sign...

Radke might be traded at midseason and I think he'll retire at the end of the year leaving Min. with the rotation of...

Santana
Liriano
Baker
Silva
Durbin


I like it, I like it a lot.

Radke would be a loss big time. The first 4 in rotation would probably keep the Twins as the best ERA in the AL, but Durbin worries me. From what I've heard, he just hasn't matured enough. I'm not a believer in the "real deal" yet.

Don't forget about Lohse. I mean, it'd be great if he were gone, but Gardy seems hell-bent on keeping him in the rotation if they are unable to trade the chump.

And shame on the Twins if they were to trade Radke, he gave them a discount when he resigned with them last year. It'd be a shame if he were unable to retire as a Twin.

Me too. As a Detroit Tiger fan, I would much rather have them have to face unproven "thrower" Durbin than solid "pitcher" Radke. I already love the decision to keep Lohse around rather than put both Liriano and Baker in the rotation. The rest of the teams in the AL Central owe the Twins a big "thank you" for that one.
