14 million for one year!!!!!!!!!!! Then we ask what's wrong with pro sports! Where could he go and make 100,000 a year? No wonder these "stars are hurt all the time,where is the incentive? Since there is really so few 'super stars' in any of the major sports,this would be a great time for management to call in the cards,there is so many teams that 40 years ago most of todays players w/b in AA ball.

They come and they go, Hobbsy. They come and they go.

So, let me get this straight... a guy pours his heart, soul, and lifetime into becoming the best possible player in his chosen field (for this instance, let's use baseball). His lifelong pursuit of perfection get's him into the top 1% of his peers, and he devotion earns him an eight-figure salary. And you think this persons next thought is "hey, I'm rich, let me pretend to be injured now." Wow.

Love Morneau and he was a great Twin, but he'll be gone before the trading deadline and Parmalee will move to first base. Book it.

Morneau is a shell of his all star past!! He flails at breaking balls low and outside like Greg Gagne used to do! Its time for Morneau to take his talents elsewhere.

Say what you want, but Morneau's injuries, especially the ones to the head, have been very real. He never complained; he tried to play through them and he has always given his best effort. We can debate the issue of whether the Twins should keep him. But to suggest that he has been poor for the team is unfair.

14 mil is a nice retirement contract.The kids best years are long gone.he'd rather be watching hockey. But you can't blame him for trying to milk another contract. Pohlad will definitly try to get him traded.That's 14 mil more in the bank suckas!

Just what we need to see. The poser manager out of shape smoking a stogie playin golf. How did this glorified third base coach ever get a managers job and how has he kept it. Forgot,,it's the twins way!
