Radke

7 posts in this topic

Anybody else want to see Radke come back? I know i really would, some people might not agree with me but i think he would do just fine next year as their 4 or 5 starter. I know he gives up to many home runs but after that rough start this year he had pretty good numbers. I couldn't believe the heart that he showed playing with that bum shoulder. I guess i would really like to see him come back no matter how he does next year, i think it would be really nice for them to get a ring for him; i think they have a good shot if they add a couple players; just because of how he stuck with the team in the 90's when they were horrible and he was still a 20 game winner. What do you guys think?

Everyone dreams to go out on top. That did not happen for Brad this year but he did have a good ride. He is a young guy still and I think he needs to heal that shoulder and then take a look at playing again if he wants. I would say that he has been playing ball for more then 25 years. Maybe he is ready to move on. Would make a fine pitching coach. Always could throw with control and there is no questioning the guy has heart and a love for the game.

Yeah I would agree he set a great example for the young guys on the staff on how to pitch through pain. I hope he has surgery this offseason, takes next year off and lets everything heal up and then maybe come back the following year.

I would love to seem him come back as a 4th or 5th starter/mentor but I don't see it. If it was just the pain and rehab staring him in the face he probably would, but he usually cites a desire to be with his kids more and watch them grow up. I don't think that one is negotiable to him anymore.

The guy can't even pick up his kids right now. That arm is SHOT. There is no way he should or will come back...

To tell ya the truth if Radke came back he would have to come back for about 1 million a year, we need his salary freed up.

I would like to see him back, but I really wonder if his shoulder would allow him to perform as good as he wants to.

Radke would be #4 or #5 if he absolutely had to, but I don't think he wants to. He's been the backbone of the team for a long time. As much as I don't want to see him go, it's time for him to go fishing.

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.

      I would say that we are about 1/4 into fall colors in this area.

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.

      I have put my guide clients on lots of pike this summer. So far largest bass is 21"- 5lbs  Pike 36" Approx. 8-9lbs, Walleye is 23 inches 3lbs. The walleyes will get better as the water cools. Time to start jigging, everything you got. I'm even started using my crankbaits.
