Welcome to Anaheim, Torii Hunter

So long, Torii HunterVladimir Guerrero and Torii Hunter, together at last.

The Los Angeles Angels agreed to a five-year, $90 million deal Wednesday with the 32-year-old free agent, who hit .297 with 28 homers and drove in 107 runs in his contract year with the Minnesota Twins.

The seven-time Gold Glover will be their everyday center fielder and hit in the middle of the lineup, making things a whole lot more complicated for the opposition to pitch around Guerrero.

Between Vlad, Torii, Garret Anderson and last year's center fielder, Gary Matthews, Jr., manager Mike Scioscia plans to use his outfield depth to rotate players at the designated hitter's spot.

Total domination is highly likely.

I'm happy for Torii, but sad for me.
