    After looking this guy up, I really hope this is a joke or I looked up the wrong guy.

    What did you expect, Ned Coletti isn't the GM.

    Don't think it is a joke. Ryan must not like what he was getting out of his 5th outfielder

    It's the right guy. He is 28! He almost has no potential to improve. He is a Mastroanni at best. Unbelievable. I'm not calling for Ryan's job or anything because I'm sure he know more than I do, but I just don't get it.

    It seems to be a salary dumb, which is fine I guess if the Organization ever flipped the money saved back on the team. This had better be one crazy offseason for the Twins.

    Trading for a 28 year old outfielder that has never shown any real shine. It has to be a joke, right? They can try to resign him for 2014, still. I like Morneau having a shot at the playoffs and series. Say hi to Frankie!

    Maybe he is giving Justin a chance to be in the playoffs before possibly resigning him next year and the Pirates are paying most of the rest of his salary?

    Does this mean Joe plays 1st? Pinto and Hermann catching?

    Obviously there just wasn't a big demand for Morneau's services. The Twins got some salary relief and a warm body. They can resign Morneau at the end of the season if they want to go that direction. Too bad, but it is what it is. I wish the best to Justin. Class guy.

    When this is all the return you get, it's not worth the PR hit.

    What do you expect to receive for a one month rental? The Twins weren't going to resign him, so, they got something for nothing.
