A good deal for the Tigers, actually. If he does underperform, then you only are on the hook for two years.

The Sox need to figure it out.

So he's the Delmon Young replacement. Good for them.

Tell me about it. They actually upgraded themselves.

Despite losing speed, Hunter a much better fielder than Young.

This surprises me. Detroit has good, young, cheap internal options.

Young, cheap internal options fail probably north of 90% of the time. Good teams that want to win don't rely on them to perform.
