Default Twins ink Hunter to 4 year deal

KFAN is reporting the Twins have signed Torii Hunter to a 4 year, $32 million deal. A news conference is scheduled for later this afternoon.

That's a bargain if you ask me.

They got him for Darrin Erstad numbers. I can live with that.

It covers his 3 years of arbitration and the first year of FA. Considering he JUST turned 27, he should live out the contract fairly effectively.

Yay. 500th post! I'm a personality!

I don't know about that. The hitting is very inconsistent. At least you know he will work for his money and defense never leaves you.

Further evidence that Erstad is vastly overpaid. I'm so very glad that Disney nixed the Garland/Erstad trade.

Not until post #501, sorry - you're still just a regular...

Hunter is a behavior problem about to happen.

Wouldn't it be nice if the Sox actually signed somebody to a four year deal?

Obviously the Twins aren't going away are they? (at least not until 2007 when the "contraction" clause expires...)

It will be many, many years before the Sox have a center fielder with the talent and character of Erstad. If ever.

Care to explain the logic on this point, or are you becoming a troll?

Yes, but the important question is, "Does he wear his cap askew?" That's the true measure of talent and character.

My God, will somebody take these whiney punks that are the Minnesota Twins and their pathetic rabble of bored Vikings fans, over their knee and finally spank them once and for all?

My guess is that happens with Jacque Jones before it happens with Hunter.

I wonder how many doubles Jones will watch this season?
