At least among the cognoscenti, the reviews of the Torii Hunter deal are mixed. Yes, in the short term he does make the Angels a little better. But even granting they have money to burn, is he worth $90 million?

Over at Halos Heaven they're seeing a glass that's half full:

Basically, the Angels overpay in the outfield for two more seasons [Garret Anderson's] club option is thru '09 and [Gary] Matthews' no trade clause runs thru then as well) BUT they underpay in the infield. Casey Kotchman is the first of the current/projected infielders to be arbitration eligible -- and guess when -- yep, after the 2009 season!
