I am personally hoping for the Rick Aguilera scenario, where we:
1) trade Morneau to a contender (where he can get to the post-season but not win the WS)
2) receive a MI (instead of OF) prospect and hard-throwing A-ball pitcher (Franky Rodriguez).
3) re-sign Morneau to a 3 year $30 million deal for 2014-2016.
I'd be down for that.
