Default Tigers sign Tori Hunter

For 2 years and 26 million. I think it's a bad deal he's old and broken.

Old & Broken.......
Hit over .300 last season.
Still is very fast.
Could play Left (a cavern in CoPa) or right.

LOVE THE SIGNING
Now, go get Upton or Giancarlo and I'm back to just buying Little Caesars.

Word is that as soon as Hunter signed, Illitch asked the status of Anibel.
I love dying and fiscally irresponsible Mike Illitch!

The stats don't lie. But I think he's the next Sheffield. Hope I'm wrong. And they have to sign Sanchez

Can hunter still play the field? Yes
Can he hit better than 280 and 15 hr's? Yes
Is he better than Bosch? Yes
Is he better than dirks? Yes
Is he better than Q Berry? Yes
Is he better than delmon? Yes
Will he make the tigers better defensively? Yes.
Will he make the tigers better offensivley? Yes
Does he have more left in the tank than sheffield did when they signed him? I think so.

Good signing.

I agree with sol baaade....throwing money around like crazy mike illitch is better than healthy careful with my money mike illich

Old is correct. We have yet to see if he is broken though. I do think he is due for a statistical correction back to the mean though, especially in hitting for somebody his age. If he keeps his defensive skills where they are at though, he will be a huge improvement over Delmon. Personally, I would have rather have gotten Upton but it doesn't look like that will happen and I'm not Dave Dombrowski or Mike Illitch so I don't have as much say in the matter as I like to think I do.

Next up: a replacement for the Big Potato.

Tori Hunter batted .313/.365/.451 with 16 home runs, 92 RBI, nine stolen bases and an .817 OPS this season. he is a stand up guy in the club house.
it adds veteran leadership to the team that i think we need.

he will most likely batt 2nd in our lineup. he hit .342 with 68 rbis in the no.2 spot last season. being followed by cabreara, fielder, and vmart. i think his numbers will be good in detroit. he is a solid defensive glove in a big park, thats a big deal. our defense is a joke!

he is 37 and we overpaid to get him, are the only downsides to this deal.

if we can find a lefty starter, and a good closer, we will be hard to beat.

illich is in poor health, and wants a ring bad! i think he will pull out all the stops this season.

I agree Mr.I wants a ring. And he will over pay for guys past their prime. Hell I wouldn't be surprised if he went after Rivera and out spend the Yanks.

Do I agree? No

Will I still go to games? If they are affordable.

I believe they will get Sanchez resigned. And as long as raburn and boesch are not on the team I'll shut up and be happy to watch the games.

Who cares if the tigers overspend, in the no salary cap league it doesn't effect anything other than illitch's pocketbook. Unless they don't sign someone because of it, which I don't see happening since mr I wants a ring before he kicks the bucket.

In my opinion Sanchez is over rated and not worth $15 mill a year he is asking. Sure he finished the year strong but his career numbers aren't that great, and I have no reason to believe they will get better based off 10 or so decent starts. I would like to see him return but on the cheap, I still think porcello can be a good pitcher, most people forget that the kid is in his early 20s still and still learning the game. Most pitchers his age are in the minors not pitching for a World Series team, in time he will be good. I hope.

i would like annibal sanchez back even though his career numbers aint great.
in 7 Yrs he is 48 & 51 with a .485 winning % and a 3.75 era.
in 869.0 innings piched he has given up 850 hits, 399 runs, 362 of them earned.
he gave up 79 home runs, 320 walks, with 733 strike outs. he does have one no hitter.
only 7 career complete games.

i think 15 mil a year is way to much, but its mr I's money.
he is eligible for arbitration.
