I'm glad he won't be facing the Sox anymore, but he had a nice career, and seems like a good guy too.

Nothing but respect for him. Total team player. You heard nothing about this guy causing problems or anything like that. Last year he pitched half the season with a torn rotator cuff, I think he lasted 2 innings against the Sox at the end of August and left in excrutiating pain. But he came back at the end of the season to help with the playoff push. One of few Twins players who I never hated.

Radke had a terrific career and I always dreaded when he took the mound against the Sox. I hope he finds enjoyment and success in any endeavor he chooses.

Eh, screw him.

He was the one writing off the Sox victories during April 2005. Apparently he didn't think they counted as much at the ones in August or September.

Hey Radke!

One less AL Central pitcher who killed us Mike has to worry about. I think Mike has a lot of company in this regard.

Good luck with your future endeavors Radke! (like he lurks on WSI....)

Wow he's only 34, he seems older than that. Thats a pretty early retirement for a pitcher of his caliber.

I wish there were a lot more ballpayers like Radke.

Played for one team his whole career. He stayed there because he liked it and all he asked for was a fair contract - not THE highest dollar.

The guy played hard and tough his whole career and played with injuries.

The Twins wanted him back badly this year but he didn't just want to "take the money". He knew it was time to retire.

Good Wisconsin kid. I liked watching him pitch he was a real pro.

But, I am SO glad that he retired and the Twins need another pitcher.

Hopefully, we only have the Tigers to worry about for next year.
