The Startrib's write up for today's game has a nice big headline of Hunter getting a HR but as much as we all like Torii he plays for the other team. Kubel hit a HR too and he plays for the Twins.
I'm glad Torii is done with playing the Twins in MN. Maybe now we can get more news on current Twins players instead of throwing out the red carpet for Mr. Hunter.
The affection shown the 1st night back was warranted and showed Twins fans to be a class act. The 2nd night was great w/ Torii getting his gold glove. But I think it has gone a little too far. Afterall, he made a CHOICE to leave. No one forced him. (go ahead and start the "you would have left your job too lines now")
I'll be in LA in August when the Twins play the Angels again but I won't be there to root for Torii, Torii who? Sorry there isn't a player named Torii Hunter on the Twins and as you can see from the front of my jersey, I'm a Twins fan.
