Community Projection - Torii Hunter

[What is this?]

I don't think that Torii Hunter causes much controversy amongst Twins fans.  Some controversy, but not much.  I think that Torii Hunter's contract causes a lot of controversy amongst fans.  A guy who is a league average hitter and can play plus defense in center field is a valuable commodity.  Just how valuable and how he fits into a $70M has been the subject of many debates, though.

Hunter's had injury troubles three years in a row now, with one DL stint each year.  He probably should have missed more games last year, but he cares about winning and he thought that being out on the field, even at less than 100%, would help the team out.

So what does Torii have in store for us this year?  A spectacular contract year?  A so-so injury-riddled year?  Something else?
