Wolfson: Twins not likely to move Morneau (via Jayson Stark)
5 Eyewitness New's jack-of-all-trades Darren Wolfson relayed a note today on Twitter from ESPN.com's Jayson Stark. The Twins say they are not interested in trading Justin Morneau:
Given his injury history, age and remaining contract (2014, $14 million), I have to agree with Wolfson, it behooves the Twins to consider their options if teams come calling. After all, there are only so many pitchers you can buy on the free agent market. The Rangers were discussed as a potential suitor by Jim Bowden. The Cardinals and Blue Jays could also use a first baseman. According to MinorLeagueBall.com, Blue Jays (1), Rangers (3) and Cardinals (5) have farm systems that are highly thought of so it is possible that the Twins may be able to restock their depleted pitching with a trade of Morneau.
