Mets Sign Chad Bradford

The Mets inked former A's (and most recently, the Red Sox) reliever, Chad Bradford. to a one year deal for more then $1 million (financial terms haven't yet been disclosed). Bradford has a pretty unique delivery (submarine style) and his claim to fame is having an extensive write up in the book, Money Ball.

Bradford was shut down early in 2005 with back problems and he ended up logging only 23 1/3 innings. His numbers were solid though. He's never going to strike out a ton of batters, but he walked only four and allowed only a single homerun.

He'll be a good complement to Billy Wagner and Aaron Heilman and this could look like a great pickup if he comes out and pitches like he did in 2002 and 2003.
