No interest in Radke?

Postby funatic » Thu Dec 09, 2004 2:04 pm

So one of the top FA pitchers gets signed, but no posts yet...

2 years at $18mil, I think that's a pretty good move for the twins. They keep their 1-2 pitchers, and look good for yet another pennant.

This does not bode well for Santana staying, that's for sure.

Oops :-[

I did a quick search, but just didn't catch it... Oh, there was a question mark next to it. Also, I didn't see it updated by mad.

I think that's kind of a stretch. The Twins have plenty of players they would part with first (Jones, Rivas, Koskie) before letting their best player leave. On top of that, even with Radke making what he will in 2006, he was making the same in the past, but after this season, the Twins will be out from underneath the large and awful Joe Mays contract.

I hope he wasn't on your WW this year! But he's actually a better real life pitcher than fantasy pitcher. His ERA is never great, but he doesn't walk anybody, so his low K totals don't hurt as much. And he always keeps you in the game. But for fantasy... no way I'm drafting him, he doesn't gets wins, K's, or a low enough ERA for me.

If Radke gets $9 million per, what will Santana get? 11, 12, 13? I just don't see the Twins giving up that kind of money right now. Sorry.
