Morneau to Texas?

Rate this Entry
Forgive me bloggers for I have sinned. It has been 3 months and 17 days since my last post. I attribute this to 1) being busy 2) the state of the Twins having me down in the dumps and 3) laziness. However, recent trades have me excited again and wondering who's next to be moved.

I've been hearing a lot about a connection between the Orioles and Morneau but I'm wondering if he could possibly start drawing interest from Texas. Texas has been chasing Zach Greinke, Josh Hamilton and a trade for Justin Upton but Greinke has signed away with the Dodgers and the Diamondbacks are saying that Upton is off the table. If somehow the Rangers don't sign Hamilton could they potentially become a trade partner for the Twins and Morneau?

Mitch Moreland currently mans first base in Texas unless I'm mistaken and he's not exaclty a stud. Also, Morneau would fill the left-handed power gap left by Hamilton's departure.

Essentially what I'm asking is: Is this a possible scenario at all? If so could it be one where the Twins could oversell Morneau to a desperate Texas team? Also who would they target?

    Think he may be moved, more at the trade deadline, Arcia should be ready by then and Parmalee can move to first. Still wish they would extend him, but doubt they will.

    Always a possibility. I live down here in Arlington so I hear all the Ranger news. Latest discussions are of bringing Profar up to play 2B and moving Kinsler to 1B so that may pre-empt that trade from occuring. But they have also talked of moving Kinsler to the OF depending on if they don't sign Hamilton which could re-open the Morneau possibility. Given our current state, I would prefer us to keep Morneau until mid-season and then evaluate trade possibilities.

    Is there room for Morneau in Texas? They would have to give up either Andrus or Olt just to make room for him as a 1B/DH (I hear that they might move Kinsler to 1B just to make room for Profar at SS). Mind you I wouldn't mind having either...

    Who would the Twins trade him for? Derek Holland? Not exactly the star starter they are looking for, but I guess better than Correia.
