However, I didn’t know much about what Torii Hunter said nor the context so I decided to go look and see for myself. I found an article containing his comments here:

After reading the quotes, it seems to me that there was absolutely nothing justifiable about the things that Torii Hunter said. It seems like he’s trying to bash the frugality of the league, which to an extent is understandable, but he definitely took the wrong approach to discussing the topic by bringing race into the discussion.
