From rotoworld.com:

Brad Radke was the victim of a Torii Hunter practical joke prior to the All-Star game.
Hunter put an official looking letter on Dodgers' letterhead in Radke's locker, signed by Hee-Seop Choi requesting that Radke be his pitcher in the home run derby on Monday. A pretty good joke by Hunter, considering Radke gave up three homers to Choi in June. Jul. 13 - 8:46 am et

I hope that causes a big problem in their clubhouse.

It will. Radke is the ultimate excuse-maker when things go wrong. I'm sure he and Hunter will have a fight over it.

That is pretty funny. Not as funny as the actual game it happened in, but close.

Both Radke and Santana for whatever reason are not the same pitchers as last year. Losing Koskie and Guzman hurt that team bad. I doubt Boone, and his .299 OBP will make a difference.

Thats pretty good... :redneck

I wonder how Garcia or Garland would react if Konerko did something similar? :cool:

This is almost as good as the quote from ESPN.com:
"In efforts to add more excitement to the All-Star break festivities, Major League Baseball has asked Jamie Moyer to pitch in the homerun derby."

I enjoyed reading this little nugget by Jacob Luft of SI about the best and worst from yesterday's game:


Worst Consolation Prize
Before the game, Taco Bell gave a guy the chance to win a million bucks by throwing five "strikes" through a slot in a giant blue placard. He managed only one strike so instead of a million bucks he "wins" a year's supply of Taco Bell. On the bright side, the Cincinnati Reds offered him a tryout.

While I find this absolutely hysterical, I highly doubt Radke would agree, unless he and Hunter are REALLY good friends.

I hope radke pulls a Bad news bears moment, gets a comebacker hit to him by frank and refuses to throw him out, allowing frank with an inside the park homerun

"THROW THE BALL JOEY!"

I don't know if any of you remember, but about 8+ years ago EA sports was pushing out their MLB game, and they started with a deep throated guy;

'Brad Radke as a rookie, threw 180 innings, struck out 120 people, had an era of 4.12...' [showing guys striking out, radke pitching, looking tough]

'and gave up 47 homeruns.' [showing the Cleveland Indians doing the "snake dance" around the bases, Radke whiplashing his head...]

"EA Sports, Great as Griffey, Real as Radke."

Best tag line ever. :gulp:

I think Radke has a good sense of humor. That was a long time ago, but he's still comes off as a mellow guy. But I'm sure this will crack the clubhouse down the middle. Pitchers vs Players. Brawls erupting. Chairs broken. Dogs and cats living together. Mass chaos!!!
