Now that Morneau's signing with the Rockies is official. I am curious to read what you folks think his offensive numbers will look like at the conclusion of the 2014 season.
My take: 25ish HR's • .280ish BA • 60ish BB • 620 PA's
My prediction with the HR's is based on the assumption that Morneau plays the whole season with Colorado and is not traded.

you realize that the 25ish HRs would be close to his career high, right?
I think that the Steamer projections: .276/.345/.461 19 HR, 49 BB, 553 PAs might actually be optimistic.

Andre Gallaraga did not have a concussion bad enough to make him a shadow of his former self and close to replacement level for 3 seasons...

My challenge is batting average. I think it's feasible that Morneau hits 23 or so, maybe 25. If he hits it in the air, he still has plenty of power. His bat speed looked so slow, that I question his average. My prediction is home run or out at Coors field. .260 batting average.

He might hit more doubles in Colorado. His 25 games with the Pirates were a disappointment since driving in 3 runs in 25 games is bad regardless of what metric is used. 40 doubles and 20 HRs and he will be considered a good signing.

140 games. 24 HR .270/.330/.456
I think he has a solid bounceback year, but the Twins won't hugely regret letting him walk.
