career vs LHP: .250/.286/.416
His best year was 2009, his splits vs LHP sucked that year too. Overrated and a platoon waiting to hapopen. Where did you get the idea that a SH can't be platooned? Is that comic book stuff or what?

Minny is certainly making noises about how much they want for Morneau.
Give me one of Davis, Belt, Hosmer, Morneau, and Smoak or give me a frown.
why do you want Justin Morneau, look at his splits post concision, at this point he is all name, big contract and platoon waiting to happen. and since you hate those guys is the trade you proposed just for a reliever close to free agency, that seems weird that you would want to pick up a big contract platoon first basemen for just a reliever, wouldn't it be easier to just trade for him and ignore Morneau all together?Overrated and a platoon waiting to happen.

Kills RHP, and is below league average against LHP in his best 3 years combined and more so career wise.

- He can still field well
- 2012 was a solid step over 2011
- He rakes in Fenway
- He hits LHP better than Morales career wise
- He won't cost that much to deal for
- He's only 2 years older than KM, and has done a lot more
- Morneau didn't miss a whole year and most of another within the last 3 years. if Morneau wasn't a gamer his stats would look even better
Morneau is the perfect shorter term solution IMO. He could probably buy us a few years at 1B.
So if they did make a deal for him, they better sign a back-up for him just incase.
I dunno if he is worth the risk making a deal for if they end up having to replace him if anything happens to him.
IMO I'd rather go for Smoak, Davis, or Butler. More expensive but younger, under control, and more reliable.

IMO Morneau is a HIGH RISK that unless he comes literally for nothing and the Twins take responsability for all of his $$, he should be at the bottom of the Sox's list for a 1B option.
