In response to softlaw's comment:
I'm curious to know how Torii Hunter is racist. Please explain.
"People see dark faces out there, and the perception is that they're African American. They're not us. They're impostors.
"Even people I know come up and say, 'Hey, what color is Vladimir Guerrero? Is he a black player?' I say, 'Come on, he's Dominican. He's not black.' " -- Torii Hunter
Hunter has been nothing short of a great teammate and player his whole career. His been a role model both in the clubhouse as well as within the community. He plays the game the right way and has always been great with the fans too.
IMO, hes earned every penny of his contracts throughout his career and hes well respected throughout the baseball community.
In reality, Hunter has been a high big Loser his entire MLB career. He regularly makes bigoted comments that reflect his racial identity politis, and is simply the token adopted establishment poster child for "Black Americans". He's an athletic entertainer who fails at MLB team concept. He's a mental midget. He plays for contracts and does not respect the game of baseball. There have been complaint from fans about his racist based arrogance that is manifest in his frequent comments on racial identity politics.
Hunter has been an absurd big labor cost who has ripped off the paying public who supported the Twins and Angels.
Signing him to market avlue would be an act of incompetence. Cherry has proven that he's capable of such idiocy.
Hahahahaha. Torii is most certainly one of the good guys. Though paid handsomely, the antidote to your hated Big Labor Slug. Community active. Fan friendly. Clubhouse leader. Ego never in the way of playing hard and doing what is right for the team.
Nevermind the fact that you are missing the forest for the trees in the statements you have cherry-picked and taken way out of context. The fact that these comments would define him for you rather than the body of his work and actions as a major leaguer speaks volumes about your penchant to trash people.
