    Good signing for Det, although that big of a park might limit Hunter a bit. And, of course, he's old so he could fall off a cliff.

    They get him and they get VMart back. Add that to the fact that they underachieved in the first half this past season based on their talent. Should win 100 games this year

    Wow, I thought for sure he was going to the dodgers.

    Huner will help Detroit. It just means a couple of their non performers will probably not be back(Bosech, Raburn)/

    maybe...but I don't think there's a team in our division that comes close to matching their talent

    Agreed. And I wasn't even claiming they couldn't win 100. Not sure they should, though, and I'd wager the under is more likely.

    $26M is a lot of money....I wish deals wouldn't cost so much.
    Anyways, good luck Hunter....

    Wait, you don't think they'll bring back Brennan Boesch? A guy like that is going to get another shot, his poor performance in '12 notwithstanding.

    (Even if he did go to that hellhole called UC Berkeley.)

    Except that they didn't really underachieve.
