Now that Joe Torre is with the Dodgers, more players are interested in playing for him. Free agent outfielder Torii Hunter, who is drawing some interest from most of the league, said he is interested in playing for the Dodgers because of Joe Torre: "The Dodgers are definitely near the top," Hunter told Yahoo! Sports. "With Joe Torre there, things have got to change. He's bringing his history with them. I'm telling you, they're going to start winning." Hunter hit .287 with 28 HR and 107 RBI and could take over in center and have Juan Pierre move to left field. Hunter will probably take a five year deal, worth about 16-18 million dollars annually.
