I think that Colabello is actually making Chris Parmelee trade bait more than Morneau (Colabello would be the bridge to Sano at 1st).
How so? All the reports I have heard is that the organization wants to make room for Parm in 2013. And I think Plouffe is the bridge to Sano at 3B. I think Sano has a better shot at OF or DH than 1B for the Twins

Forgive me, but can someone pot som background on Collabelo? Age, level, etc?
There's been a ton written about him at Twins Daily... http://www.twinsdail...Chris-Colabello
He's 29... 2012 was his first season in affiliated ball after being the independent league player of the year in 2011, his 7th or 8th year with that team, in the town he went to college in. Just a great story.
Due to the age, the word 'potential' may not be appropriate. However, I think he can be a solid enough RH bench bat with a little power who can pinch hit and play some 1B.

Colabello might be a good platoon option for either Parmalee or Morneau, but counting on more than that is crazy.
