Sid,why would he consider playing for the Twins when he said he wants to sign with a winner--makes no sense at all.

Morneau is looking for a winner. I doubt a winner will be looking for him.

I'd love to see Justin back with the Twins and get this pathetic team turned around back to our winning days.

Sid had Morneau all but back in Minnesota for 2014 after the trade. Now he's not very sure. I bet he won't be I-told-you-soing this one.

Sid made a comment about Webb that brings up a point closing in on needing some feedback from the Vikings. What is wrong with Cordarrelle? Something about him at wide out is not working and Rick made a bad pick. Sure, the wr coach was begging for him, but a gm has to be above that. We really seem to have come up glaringly short in this draft class to this point. Nothing to be excited about for sure.

77 at bats, zero homeruns, 3 runs batted in, 4 doubles in 25 games played. Good luck Justin, hope you find a winner.

I won't write him off just because he didn't light it up in Pittsburgh, but I do wonder what he's got left in the tank, offensively. His last while with the Twins wasn't stellar, and as for the National League teams, I don't know what they would have seen in Morneau from his performance in Pittsburgh, that would have them interested in him. I guess what Morneau said is true - "We'll see." I mean, if a market for his services doesn't develop, maybe he'll end up back with the Twins.

With Morneau's reduced production it will be hard for a team w/o a DH to sign him. The DH helps offset the lack of offense from Morneau, but in the NL a 1st baseman has to produce offensively because of the poor production from the pitchers having to hit.
