Brad Radke was suppose to announce a decision on retirement by early November, I still have not heard anything. Is it possible that he he is seeing the money being thrown around and is now thinking about coming back? Do you think he could be signed to a deal similiar to the Woody Williams deal?

I think he would make a great # 3 starter for the Reds.

I would even think about putting him on a schedule where he wouldn't make his first start til May 1st. Give him some extra rest, make sure he is strong in September.

Thoughts?

Radke's arm is assembled at the moment with spit and tissue paper, he's done.

If you want Brad Radke, give Elizardo Ramirez a little more experience.

Despite the need for painkillers, anti-inflammatories and cortisone shots, Radke is out there pitching through the pain of a torn labrum and what one Twins source called a "shredded" rotator cuff. Since the cuff is involved in decelerating the arm, the source tells me that it feels to Radke as if "his arm's tearing off his body."

:D I guess not.

I didn't realize his injuries were that bad.

Somewhere right now, Doc Hollywood is getting ready to buy a new boat and smiling with glee.

Ugh, I'm really sorry read that. Makes me want to strap a big ice pack to my perfectly healthy shoulder.

If Radke would come back anywhere I could guarantee that it would be in Minnesota and not anywhere else. Even if he'd get twice as much money somewhere else. But I tend to think he is finished.
