Should every kid who participates in a sporting event receive a trophy?
“It might have been the best outing we’ve had from him,” Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said after Tuesday’s win over the Twins.
“Hopefully you get miracles,” Guthrie said. “Stolen bases (outs) with the bases loaded and their best hitter up. Stuff like that.”
“The energy for Opening Day, for me it’s a kin to the Super Bowl. It’s kind of an unofficial holiday for Michigan and Detroit. It’s a lot of fun to be a part of it.”
Torii Hunter’s first game back with the Minnesota Twins ended with the outfielder yelling at plate umpire Joe West.
“Hopefully if I’m out I don’t walk to the wrong dugout,” Hunter added jokingly. “We’ll see.”
“There is no weakness of Cabrera” Hunter laughed.
Torii Hunter drove in a run in his first plate appearance with the Minnesota Twins in eight years, helping defeat the Boston Red Sox 9-8 on Thursday night.
“We’re going to miss those guys and those personalities,” Ausmus said, “but I’m not worried about there being a problem in the clubhouse.”
Hunter agreed to a $10.5 million, one-year contract with the Twins, a person with knowledge of the agreement told The Associated Press.
