    The resurgance of Justin Morneau

    As with anything this time of year limited sample size alert, but our old friend Justin Morneau is putting up some nice numbers in Colorado. His slash is .346/.386/.538, he isn't hitting for huge power with only 2 home runs but I think everyone understands his big power days are probably behind him. He is still playing excellent defense at first and is being used well with limited at bats vs lefties.

    I will always be a Morneau fan and its really nice to see him get back on track, if there is one other team I am routing for this year it is Rox because of Morneau and Cuddles.

    Yep, Colorado automatically became my default NL team when Morneau went there.

    Ah, nothing like the mountain air to perk you up...

    Very happy for Morneau (and Cuddy and Hawk); thanks for posting this!
    Try my best to keep an eye on former Twins but lord knows they're everywhere...
    Feel free to pile on about Suzuki.

    Success away from Coors field is encouraging

    He's had his power stroke working for a while now. He's on the NL leader board top ten in avg, slg, rbi, doubles and tied for 14th HR (1 shy of the top ten.)

    I thought he was ready last season to have this season. Wish that were true.

    If he did have that year, what would the Twins have done with him? Would they still have traded him (presumably for a bigger return)? Would they have re-signed him? Then what would have become of our former all-star catcher who is now manning 1B?

    My guess is they would still have traded him, but it would have been nice to get more for him (even if he was just a rental.)

    We never should of traded him. I hope he has huge success there and it's entirely possible. One of my all tme favorites, and really just a nice guy.

    Nice to see those trees in the outfield don't bother him.


    Sold or not, empty seats behind homeplate are an eyesore and an embarrassment.
