Gardy on Torii

FORT TRAFFICJAMBURG, Fla. -- The reality of Torii Hunter's contract status is starting to set in with manager Ron Gardenhire. Torii's contract is set to expire at the end of this season, and it's highly unlikely the Twins will be able to re-sign him.

“I don’t want to think about it, and I’m not going to think about it," Gardy said. "I’m just going to enjoy the moment and hope that everything gets taken care of. I’m not oblivious to it. I know it’s out there and what’s going on. Everyone here knows what Torii means to myself, to this organization and what he’s all about. I don’t think we even need to talk about that anymore.”
