Hunter Earns his Wings
Torii Hunter's recently signed deal with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim does not change the stance I made on my previous entry. Hunter would like to win a World Series ring with the Twins more than any other team. The Angels' offer (5 years, $85-90 million) to play next to Vladimir Guerrero, Garrett Anderson and/or Gary Matthews Jr. on grass in an outdoor stadium was nearly impossible to decline. Beyond Mr. Hunter himself, Torii must think of his wife and two children. As for Minnesota's next move, it'll be to do whatever is possible to battle for 3rd place in the 2008 American League central race.
