No, Torii Hunter signed with the Detroit Tigers today officially for two years, $26 million dollars.
So, $13 million a year.
It's still something of an overpay (especially since it sounded like he was perfectly willing to go $20 million/2 years--you can do a lot with $6 million, like find a damned good relief pitcher which the Tigers could definitely use), particularly for a corner OF who's going to be 39 years old before the contract expires.
But... it's a pretty good fit for the Tigers, and it's quite evident that Ilitch will do just about anything in his power to get this team a World Series Title ASAP.
