Torii Hunter

I was planning on writing about Torii Hunter today, and how Arte Moreno seems to be trying to do what we tried to do in 2001 with Galarraga, Caminiti, & Arod by trying to be George Steinbrenner.
I don’t feel like writing about that after reading about Joe Kennedy. Seems petty. Hunter went for the cash grab. He would have been nice here, but oh well. Probably will make a run at Aaron Rowand, but at this point, it wouldn’t surprise me to see Marlon Byrd out there in 2008.
UPDATE: There’s a good post with a summary of various people’s feelings about Torii Hunter and the Angels. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should. I particularly get a kick out of the notion read about moving Vlad Guerrero to permanent DH. One of the best arms in baseball, and you stick him in the DH hole. Smart.
UPDATE 2: Don’t forget Adam Morris’ thoughts on the matter. It’s pretty much what I feel anyway, so go read what Adam wrote I concur. :)
