Torii Hunter’s Twitter bio is accurate

Torii Hunter’s Twitter feed is kind of boring. Lots of Bible passages and motivational things if you’re into that sort of thing but, not much in the way of fun chatter.

His bio is pretty spot-on, though:

Just made me chuckle.

As for his job status: the Tigers did not make him an offer yesterday, but the feeling out there is that they are the front runner.

Aaron Judge out of Yankees starting lineup for finale after No. 62

ARLINGTON, Texas — Yankees slugger Aaron Judge isn’t in the starting lineup for New York’s regular-season finale, a day after his 62nd home run that broke Roger Maris’ 61-year-old American League single-season record.

When Judge homered in the first inning, in the second game of a doubleheader against the Texas Rangers, it was his 55th consecutive game. He has played in 157 games overall for the AL East champions.

With the first-round bye in the playoffs, the Yankees won’t opening postseason play until the AL Division Series.

Even though Judge had indicated that he hoped to play, manager Aaron Boone said that they would have a conversation “and see what makes the most sense.”

Judge went into the final day of the regular season batting .311, trailing AL batting average leader Minnesota’s Luis Arraez, who was hitting .315. Judge was a wide leader in the other Triple Crown categories, with his 62 homers and 131 RBIs.
