DETROIT -- Torii Hunter has reached the post-season six times in his career, but he's never played in a World Series.
Now he's joining forces with the defending AL champion Detroit Tigers -- a team that's come close to winning baseball's ultimate prize each of the last two years.
"To win it all, they're just like me. They don't know what it feels like," Hunter said. "If there's no failure, there's no progress. These guys are hungry for it."
The Tigers introduced Hunter on Friday after finalizing their $26 million, two-year deal with the free agent outfielder. The 37-year-old hit a career-best .313 last season for the Los Angeles Angels with 16 home runs and 92 RBIs, and when he went on the open market, he began eyeing Detroit right away.
