Torii Hunter Calls Reporter a ‘Prick’ During Press Conference

The Minnesota Twins officially kicked off their Torii Hunter reunion tour with an explosive press conference.
What was probably going to be another run-of-the-mill introductory love fest quickly became tension-filled after Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press opted to amp up the questions to a serious degree. And I’m not exaggerating, Berardino showed off balls of steel, asking Hunter a question regarding his well-known anti-gay marriage stance.
The $10.5 million man was none too pleased about it:

Berardino has yet to address being labeled a prick, but did tweet this:

Oh, Torii also dished out a mini anti-sabermetrics rant when he was questioned about his putrid outfield defense:

(I mean, it’s not like we needed advanced statistics to know Hunter blew on defense last year.)
So there you go, Torii Hunter still frowns upon marriage equality and knowledge. But man is he going to be a great teammate who will bring a magical aura of clubhouse leadership to a crappy Twins team.
