Former Minnesota Twin Brad Radke was a workhorse for the team. He had one good year — 1997 when he went 20-10 — but he ended up as a .500 pitcher.
He was never a “flashy” sort of player and he didn’t scream “personality.” He was a fairly low-key kind of guy.
Not like this.
It’s part of Radke’s mansion in Belleair Beach, Florida, which is for sale.
The dining room seems like a nice place to have an unpretentious dinner, or occasionally hold re-enactments of The Last Supper.
Nothing says intimate like this master suite.
The master bath will remind you of the old locker room back in the day.
With this home theater, you could invite the team over to watch Trading Places.
The living room looks like the perfect place to put your feet up on somebody and relax.
And if the house doesn’t scream “I’m rich” enough, you can put an enlarged newspaper sports section on your wall in the bar touting the richest contract (at that time) in Minnesota Twins history.
The backyard is practically maintenance free. No lawn to mow.
And the patio looks like the perfect place to meditate on all the playoff games you lost.
It can be yours for $6.8 million, or about $5.8 million more than Radke paid for the cabin in 2002. If you put 20 percent down ($1.3 million), the mortgage will only run you a little over $26,000 a month, not including taxes and insurance. That’ll run you another $6,000 a month.
You can schedule a showing here. Just don’t mention the Yankees when you go.
Be sure to stop in and meet the neighbors, though.
