What Could Morneau Do With a Healthy 2013?

Rate this Entry
Hey all,
I want to see what Justin Morneau can do with a healthy first half of 2013. His stats are notoriously strong over the first half of a season, and tend to taper off after the All-Star break.

Consider his last three "healthy" seasons, and and his five "full" seasons:
1st Half ....................... 2nd Half
2009: .311/.390/.575 .201/.310/.402
2008: .323/.391/.512 .267/.350/.481
2007: .295/.364/.581 .243/.318/.384
2006: .300/.352/.587 .342/.399/.531 (still, a modest decline in slugging pct.)
2005: .267/.331/.477 .211/.277/.397

I think we can agree that over the first half of 2012, Morneau was in recovery mode. Take a look at his progression over this year...

2012: .246/.312/.440 .319/.376/.505

I am ready to see what the Big Canadian can do in the first half of 2013, healthy, rested, and wearing a Twins uniform.

    I hope that "contract extention" means trading him before the deadline for prospects and putting Parmalee into the 1B/DH position full time. I hope Morneau has a monster first half so his value is as high as it can possibly be and he is fun to watch hit.
