The Twins simply can't take a chance signing Morneau to anything long term at this point. His health is still a big question mark, and the Twins don't have the kind of cash to stomach a non-productive or marginally-productive player with the kind of contract he is likely looking for to be sitting on IR 50% of the time. Hate to say it, but Morneau is likely headed to Boston, LA or some other city where the well of money is deep enough to endure that kind of situation.

(article quote): "Morneau, who is a free agent after the season, said he would like to stay with the Twins if the team had a chance to win." ---- Didn't the team owners just take him on a walking tour of the brand new stadium to change his mind? The stadium is expected to BRING "talent" here to cold Omaha, not make it want to leave! Was that a lie also? Face it: play here or in a warm climate - he wants out and talent gets to play where it wants to.

It's time to clean house with this ball club and start fresh. Time for a new manager with fresh faces on the field. Hopefully Morneau will tear up the league and command some good value in a trade. He really has been a non-factor the last three years. He should be paying back half of his previous contract in good faith on his part.

@gdkxzy - "He should be paying back half of his previous contract in good faith on his part." -- Yeah, players will do that when teams start paying players bonuses for past seasons where they performed better than their contract paid for. Get back to reality.

Morneau would be a great fit back home with the World Series bound Toronto Blue Jays.
