First he's the "most exciting base runner" - now he's the "Ultimate Wall Banger."

Is Minnesota and Torii Hunter the new Boston for ESPN??

ESPN has always had a soft spot in their heart for the Twinkies....ever since they narrowly avoided contraction and won the division that year.

I loathe ESPN. When ESPN first appeared on cable I was 14. Being young and dumb I loved them. As I've aged and matured I realize that Espn is a joke. From the east coast bias to really unprepared "experts" I can't watch it anymore.

Well, what do you expect from a company that considers Mickey Mouse to be their corporate icon.

Wow I really want Freddy to peg Torii this year, and then when Torii tries to charge the mound, AJ will put him in his place.

I would love to see some of that fire actually displayed on the field this year.

Well, there is no doubt in my mind that Torii is the best at going up and over the wall, however by that title, Aaron should have won that award. :D:

I know that we all hate ESPN and Torri Hunter but is the article false? No, they even said that he wasn't the best overall CF, just the best at taking HR's away.

True, but why feature a story just on that aspect alone? So they can put Torii's face on it?

Don't forget, Torii's from the hood.

There is something that we can do to make all this crap go away, and that is beat the Twins about 15 times.
