The Quotable Torii Hunter
In this election season, Torii Hunter has appointed himself campaign manager. He said he already has launched the "Mark Teixeira in '08 and beyond" campaign, hoping to persuade the slugger to sign a long-term contract with the Angels rather than defect to another team in free agency.
Hunter said he plans to treat Teixeira to fine dining in Orange County and Los Angeles, showing off the region's top restaurants and wonderful weather.
"You can get a tan," Hunter said. "You can tan naked if you want to."
