Does Dirks get moved to RF, then?
Based on the press conference today it sounds like Hunter will be the RF and so I assume Dirks in LF.
Hunter said he started scouting out teams this summer in case the Angels didn't bring him back and settled on the Tigers. He actually called them up and set up the Tuesday meeting himself. Just so happens they were having their organizational meetings this week so all the people were there already.
It's amazing that in 10 years the Tigers went from begging Craig Paquette to sign to having Torii Hunter chase them down.
