Twins Trade Justin Morneau

Just a brief note to vent a bit.Morneaus Bat
Even though this makes sense – Justin being a free agent at the end of the season – I still don’t care for it. Other than the fact that Justin gets to play some games that matter now with the Pirates. Twins got Alex Presley, a 27 year old outfielder, and “player to be named later or cash”.
Let’s hope the Twins make a play for Justin in the off season. He seems like a good guy to have on the club.
In yesterday’s win – a nice win, where Hermann tied the game in the 7th at 2-2, and broke up the no-hitter with his home run – Justin’s game winning shot passed Tony Oliva for fourth place on the Twins all-time home run list, with 221.
Quick Quiz: behind who?
Answer: Killebrew (559), Hrbek (293), and Allison (256).
I wonder how much of Mauer we will be seeing now at first base?
