Morneau to Texas?

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?
