While Los Angeles Angel fans may be happy with the signing of Josh Hamilton there is one man who is not. Torii Hunter took to twitter after a five year deal between the Angels and Hamilton was announced.
“I was told money was tight but I guess the Arte had money hidden under a Mattress. Business is business but don’t lie.” tweeted Hunter.
Hunter spent five seasons with the Angels. During that span he compiled a .286/.352/.462 line while winning two Gold Gloves. Hunter was also selected to two all-star teams and won a Silver Slugger.
Needless to say that set off a slue of re-tweets and comments. One comment came from Dick Vitale who told hunter “u r better off the Tigers will be really good + not far from ND – can see ur son”
Hunter tried to downplay the tweeter later saying “I’m not upset just have fun with it.”
Next season Hunter will play for the Detroit Tigers after signing a two-year $26 million deal in November.
