Hunter worth Angels' investment
February, 25, 2008
TEMPE, Ariz. -- Torii Hunter's motor is always running. He's in the clubhouse at 7:30 a.m., with the clubhouse kids and the rookies. His voice carries across the field during the rites of stretching. He's first in line for the outfield drills. He hits in the group with Chone Figgins, Garret Anderson and showstopper Vlad Guerrero. And Hunter is the one talking. "He's like Dusty Baker was when he was with the Dodgers," says Mike Scioscia, "because he's never afraid to say something when he sees something he doesn't like. He never has an excuse."
