Give credit to Twins Manager Ron Gardenhire. In the last home game of the season for the Twinkies, he gave pending free agent, and Minnesota CF staple, Torii Hunter a moment to remember. When the Twins took the field in the top of the 9th in a game they would win easily, Hunter went out to his normal position. Then Gardy sent in a sub so Hunter could make the long jog back to the dugout while receiving the adulation of the fans.
Hunter is embroiled in contract talks. He's had a career year, but the notoriously cheap Twins offered him a lowball contract, which he's rejected. Hunter wants to stay in Minnesota; the Twins' owner is the richest of the 30 owners in all of MLB (and he rakes in additional money from revenue-sharing for his small market team); and Hunter has become the face of the franchise the way Kirby Puckett did 15 years ago.
So kudos to Gardy for recognizing his player and giving him a deserved moment in the spotlight.
