It’s not exactly news that the White Sox met with Torii Hunter last night, since Joe Cowley noted way back on November 1st that they’d get together. Of course the two sides were not allowed to discuss a contract.
Joe Christenen’s article says Hunter is intensely studying teams to determine their long-term competitiveness. He’s digging into their farm systems and contract obligations. Christenen believes the Sox would need to unload Jon Garland’s $12MM salary to fit Hunter in for 2008.
