I don't know who got in Morneau's head, but as I watch him bat, I see nothing that resembles his MVP season. He is a fine defensive first basemenl but lately he has been hitting nothing but lazy fly balls. Something, is wrong.

PS... the vikings are in the driver's seat when it comes to a trade. It won't happen until the last minute when some team sees a "must have" player and is afraid another team will take that player. At that time, they will be willing to give up a lot and that is exactly what the vikes should hold out for.... perhaps a next year first round pick and a second rounder or more. It all depends on the team that needs to do that trade and what they have for picks.

Comment: I would like to see Vik's be a in a good position to Swap one of their first's with another team for another second this year (4 picks in first two rounds would be great)

Winfield's deal with Seattle validates the Viking's decision to cut him and his $7.25 million salary. It sounds like the Viking's overraated his value even after cutting him, offering him $3 million guaranteed when Seattle only gave him $1 million.

Sid, you visited with Spielman but didn't question his handling of Winfield? If he would have been honest with Winfield and tell him as much as we want him back, we can't afford him, Winfield wouldn't be scorned and would have signed at a reduced rate. Now we are scrambling to find an adaquate replacement. A little PR goes a long ways. C'mon Sid, grow a pair and ask the questions that need to be answered.
