It's kind of hard for me to comprehend. When does it end? He's barely played the last season and a half. The only thing he should be dealing with right now is the concussion. He's had plenty of time to be strengthening the wrist, yet here we are a couple weeks to go and he's still dealing with this? Eerily similar to Mauer's situation last year. On top of it all, Morneau appears to be skinny and sickly. Aren't power hitters supposed to have a little meat on their bones? Have Mauer or Morneau ever touched a weight in their life? Get in the weight room for goodness sake!

Justin was training his tail off to be in shape, did you see the video on here of him a few months ago? Facing major league pitching is a whole different game. He has the endurance, just give him time to get his timing down and get trust in his wrist.

Baseball players are so wimpy it's a disgrace. Contact is so incredibly minimal, yet they seem to invent new injuries everyday. Baseball players haven't always been this pathetic. It has slowly eroded into this in the last 20 years. Our American past time is slowly eroding. Baseball is the greatest sport, but MLB and the players union are doing their best to destroy it.

Doesn't sound very good to me.....where the hell are all the trainers, etc????? Same crap as last year?????????

Justin was training his tail off to be in shape? Well, he sure as heck wasn't doing weight training. Seems to me I remember he was standing on a bunch of colored dots. Since when does training consist of playing Twister? Only in the Twins organization.

He was great when he was healthy, but I really hope he retires very soon. The team can't afford to wait for him to maybe show potential again. Not when he's supposed to be your cleanup hitter and taking up a spot (1b) meant for a productive bat.

Give Justin a break! He has never been a Grapefruit league hitter...he will be fine once the season starts. Power hitters don't all look like Prince Fielder!

Even if Justin is 100% healthy, he's missed too much playing time, too many at-bats over the last two years. It isn't all going to come back right away. He might never regain form.
