Back on Chelsea, it's a good move for them. They can repair the squad by throwing money at it, and in the EPL, there isn't much better than Torres (except Drogba/Rooney when they're into it).
Bradley was playing fine at Mongenblack (or however you spell it), but had missed a couple of starts recently as the manager was just trying to throw anything together that worked. Bradley holds the record for most goal in a season by an American at a top tier European club. Hopefully with Ireland moving out of Vista, that'll open up the room Bradley needs to get on the field. He'll at least be amongst familiar American faces there.

As far as Torres, Chelsea would be better pressed spending that money on 2 defenders, or a defender an a speedy winger than on Torres. Nothing against Torres, he just isn't what Chelsea really need. Chelsea would be better off playing Kalou up front more often, and cycling between a 4-headed beast of Kalou/Drogba/Anelka/Malouda. They need help in the midfield since Lampard can't stay healthy. Essien hasn't done anything in the attacking half this year (hasn't scored with his foot yet), and Ramirez has shown he may have potential, just not until he puts on another 15-20 lbs. of muscle.
