Q: We know why Justin Morneau might be traded, but is there a case for him remaining in Minnesota long-term?
A: Sure. That would be the ideal scenario. He's a guy that hits in the middle of the lineup. He's certainly got a resume. He came off a couple tough years through no fault of his own, between the concussions, the wrist and the ankle. But we're looking for him to bounce back, drive in runs -- and if he does that, then the opportunity would arise that maybe we could talk about an extension.
