    Yes in 2009 he had a very good year. He still has good power, but otherwise is pretty bad.

    Norris and Lind for morneau

    Worst case for the jays he's a better lind making 2x the salary. Not great but I'd gamble on morneau bouncing back over Lind even with the money. If morneau regained close to what he was a few years back, he could be the piece to put he jays over the top.

    He had a remarkable '09 season but went straight downhill from there. Though his HR totals have been somewhat decent, he's just been atrocious in every other aspect of the game. He ****ing sucks!

    I'd much rather take the gamble on Morneau bouncing back than having to sit through another season watching Lind get another 300+ AB's.

    .
    You expect a stud pitching prospect back for a concussed Morneau? If that's the case, no team will meet your expectations. He's only got one year left on his deal which is appealing but it's still a lot of money for a guy who's a platoon hitter right now. Morneau simply isn't the MVP hitter he once was and there's no doubt about that. Try Morneau for Lind. Two guys who need a fresh start. Both have one year left on their deals and have been struggling for a few years. It would also save the Twins a few million bucks. It's a roll of the dice for both teams and there's not much to lose given both guys can walk within a year.

    Personally I think he never comes back and with his contract being insured I'll bet the Yankee brass feel the same way... I like the Doumit- Mourneau idea

    Doesn't surprise me one bit that these rumors are swirling. Twins are in full rebuild mode. But, I absolutely doubt Mauer goes anywhere. He's from Minnesota, played for them his entire career, and he needs to stay there. He's a hometown boy. Morneau a little different story. I can see him being moved soon.

    I wouldn't give up much for either any way, mauer can't catch and will need to dh or play first, and he just doesn't have the power to profile at either of those spots,

    Morneau can't hit lefties at all any more, he is a 13 million dollar platoon.

    Mauer's not going anywhere. He has to approve the trade. Morneau on the other hand, I could see him going if the twins get the right deal. It sounds to me mauer really loves it in minnesota.
