08:12 AM ET 02.04 | Torii Hunter thrived while hitting between Mike Trout and Albert Pujols in Anaheim, and the Tigers can hope for the came kind of production. [Said Hunter:] "It's a good fit for me." Anaheim appeared to be a good fit for Hunter too. ... But in conversations with General Manager Jerry Dipoto, Hunter said he was led to believe the Angels were financially handcuffed by the $42 million they owe reserve outfielder Vernon Wells. Their offer to Hunter was for $5 million. ... Hunter said he was "trying to be funny" in his ["money hidden under a mattress"] tweet, adding that the Angels organization "is A-1; I had a blast there." But he also felt misled. "Just tell me straight up that you don't want me," Hunter said, "and I'll be fine with that."
