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.

Am I the only Sox fan not bothered by this move?

Go ahead, Detroit. Sign some more old guys.

I'll bet you anything he doesn't repeat that. That was a career high. The guy is a lifetime .277 hitter. He hit .262 the year before last.

I'm not afraid of Torii Hunter. Huge overpay by the Tigers.

He doesn't have to hit .313 to be dangerous in that lineup.

JB:

I suspect Ilitch isn't concerned in any way shape or form that he potentially 'overpaid' for Hunter.

He wants to hold that trophy before he dies.

Hunter is still a good player. Wish the Sox had more of his type even if he 'only' hits .270. I'd take that in a heartbeat over some of the averages in the Sox lineup.

Detroit is simply going to bludgeon teams next year.

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

Sounds similar to the Sox teams of the early 2000s. Lets see if the starting pitching beyond Verlander can keep at the high level they showed in the playoffs before we crown anyone.
