Twins keep Radke

After taking things down to the wire in negotiations--if the Twins wouldn't have signed Radke or offered him arbitration by last night at 11 p.m., he would have been gone--they two sides agreed to a two-year $9 million deal.

I haven't always been a fan of Radke. He is so laid back sometimes you wonder if he cares. But this past year, he pitched like a machine. His won-loss record wasn't that good, but that wasn't his fault. His ERA was amongst the best in the American League, and he pitched a lot of innings.
