    Tigers sign Bonderman to three-year deal, $38 mill.

    I actually think it's four years, Hank. Seems like a helluva value, too. Bonderman strikes me as a Jack Morris type--never a great ERA, but solid and durable. That may be a little strong considering I think Morris belongs in the HOF, but Bondo seems like a workhorse.

    You're right. Four year deal.

    But yea, good deal to get a long term deal for a young arm. I believe his ERA has gone down every year he's been in the majors.

    For a guy to bounce back from a 6-19 rookie year shows he has some mettle. I love guys like that.

    The Yankees have been home for Halloween every year since 2001.

    Bonderman is only 24 and wasn't a free agent, so his contract doesn't reflect his full market value.

    Twins starter Brad Radke will make it official today.

    Carried a lot of awful Twins teams from shite to just below mediocre. And whether that matters or not in the grand scheme of things, it matters a great deal to the fan who wants to see a good game, and knows that every fifth day, Minnesota would at least have a shot.

    Also pitched almost all of last season in terrible pain with a torn labrum, but refused to come out of the rotation.

    A ballplayer.

    Thanks, Brad.

    From what people have told me, Radke pitched with an awful lot of pain this past season. Amazing that he kept going out there. Sort of like Nagy a couple of years ago.

    Word in the Cities was that he couldn't throw the ball 20 feet between starts.

    Had to brush his teeth, comb his hair, etc. left-handed all year.

    What a shocker. Ken Griffey, Jr. is hurt again. Broke his hand in an incident at home. So far, no details on how it happened.
