You’re excited. Admit it. It’s kind of cool to have Torii Hunter back in town. I’m even saying that now and I was so (read that so with about a million o’s on it) against bringing him in, but now I’m in too. Hunter brings leadership and is a good presence in the clubhouse, but he’s also expected to actually produce for the Twins.
Hell, he might even play in some games unlike some Kevin guy that plays across the street at Target Center. I’d prepare for Torii Hunter to be in the lineup most every day, even in games that are on the road. I will take shots at KG and I even liked that move. Work with me, Timberwolves, work with me.
While I strongly believe that Torii and KG were both brought in to sell tickets, Hunter will also have to produce. It’s no guarantee that he will. He’s not as young as he once was and he is, frankly, not as good defensively as he once was either. Either if he’s good, bad, otherwise or we just can’t tell, it will be fun to go to Target Field and see him try to play that darn overhang in right field.
Next: Get comfy on the bandwagon!
