I miss Torii. He was/is a great team player. I do not believe he deserves the kind of pay he is getting but he is a great guy.

This move was made mostly to accomodate the beginning of Hunter's skills diminishing. This is exactly why the Twins couldn't give Torii the long term contract he desired. I knew that the Twins would miss him for the first couple of years of his tenure with the Angels, but his contract would be bloated on the back end.

Don't get me wrong, his skills are not gone yet. But this is the beginning of the end.
