No player is worth that kind of money. These guys get paid millions to play a game. Go figure! Greed is what today's players are all about. The days of loyalty from players like Kirby [Puckett] and Kent [Hrbek] are over.
It is disappointing, because he just said the other day that he would not make any decisions until after Thanksgiving. Obviously he didn't learn everything from the late and loyal Kirby Puckett.
Good for Torii! ... Torii Hunter is a big-time player and deserves the big bucks. Plus, he is a nice guy -- we were lucky to have him as long as we did.
Twins fans need to chill out. Baseball (and all pro sports) is a business, for both the team owners and the players. It is unfortunate that some people bad-mouth Torii -- he was a leader in the clubhouse who came to play every day.
This is a sad day for Minnesota, and a sad day for anyone that is a Twins fan. It just goes to show that management has no loyalty to its players and this is truly a business. You have guys on this team who have stated they have wanted to stay here, because the team chemistry is so great and the friendships they have made with other players is great too. The Twins will always be a small market team with a great farm system.
It's not looking good that the Twins finally got their new stadium, so the Pohlads will get more money, and they don't re-sign Hunter, and it looks like they are trying to trade Santana. The new stadium was supposed to bring in more talent, not put more money in the Pohlad's pockets.
