Baseball and brothers

Dizzy and Daffy Dean. Tony and Chris Gwynn. George and Ken Brett.

Baseball has been full of brother acts for many years. And, now, arbitration has its own brother act.

Todd Walker was headed for arbitration with the San Diego Padres, thanks in large part to his younger brother Mark. I spoke with the Walkers' mother, Donna, last night and she was as excited as she could be and not just because Todd won his case and notched the highest salary of his career.

No, she was excited because her two sons were on the same team for the first time since the early 1990s on the football and soccer fields at Airline High School.

And, now, thanks in large part to his brother, Todd Walker can be happy as baseball season rolls around.
