He's not sure where he'll play, but his concussion symptoms haven't returned and his timing slowly has.

Yes the Twins already invested a lot in the M and M boys. Like recent years, those two determine how the Twins offense will do. And starting pitching (or lack there of)...ugh.

Sorry bogustarski, but nothing can change the fact that we have a horrid starting pitching rotation.

I think Morneau was one of the best defensive first basemen in all of baseball. When he went down in 2010 with his concussion, I felt he was the leading candidate for the Gold Glove. If DHing helps Morneau regain his old form, I'm all for it. Brilliant move by Gardenhire. It appears to be working. We'll have a formidable lineup if Parmelee makes the club.

Brilliant move by Gardenhire? What brilliant move? While I think the TWINS should DH Morneau exclusively for two months or so to let his brain heal some more, Gardy hasn't decided anything. To me it's a no-brainer.

These guys are an embarassment. Bi-lateral leg weakness (sore legs) go to the DL. Fall down while sliding-go on the DL. Soon they will be going to the DL for hangovers!!

What is the value of a player who can only DH and whose 3 surgeries + concussion may each have a 10-20% chance of taking him off the roster due to recurrence?
