Torii calls it 'no-brainer' to come home to Twins
For Torii Hunter, Wednesday's news conference at Target Field wasn't an introduction to the Twins' organization, it was a reintroduction. Hunter, who played the first 11 years of his career in Minnesota, officially returned home, as the 39-year-old outfielder signed a one-year, $10.5 million deal wi ...
Torii's return to Twins about loyalty, character
Some things are just right. Torii Hunter returning to the Twins qualifies as one of those. There will be a lot more significant moves made this Hot Stove season, no doubt. But there may not be a cooler decision than Hunter declining interest from the Rangers, Blue Jays, Royals and others to return t ...
