Hunter happy with big-money players in Angels camp

Published:

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- On the first day Angels position players reported to camp, outfielder Torii Hunter looked to his left, looked to his right and said: "I won't never pay for dinner."

To Hunter's left is Vernon Wells, in the second year of a contract that will pay him $21 million this season. On his right? Albert Pujols, who just signed a 10-year, $240 million deal with the Angels.

"This is the best team I've been a part of my whole career, as far as numbers wise," said Hunter, himself on the final year of a five-year deal with the Angels that will pay him $18 million. "We haven't done anything yet, but looking at the team you can tell that this is a great ballclub."
