Minnesota Twins first baseman Justin Morneau is in the final year of his contract, and Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe wonders if the club would be interested in trading him if they’re able to get “a nice group of young players in return.” Cafardo believes a trio of American League East club, including the Boston Red Sox, Baltimore Orioles and Tampa Bay Rays could be interested in acquiring Morneau from the Twins as a source of first base help. Morneau has struggled to remain healthy over the last several seasons. The slugger was limited to 81 and 69 games in 2010 and 2011, but he was able to suit up for 134 games last year. Over 505 at-bats for the Twins, the 31-year-old hit .267/.333/.440 with 26 doubles and 19 home runs. Morneau is set to make $14 million in 2013. While he’s been a productive player in the past, it’s unclear if teams would be willing to surrender the return required for the Twins to be motivated to move him this offseason.

If Healthy, Carl Pavano Wouldn’t Be A Bad Pickup

With spring training almost a month away, the Mets are running out of time to fill voids left in the outfield, bullpen and starting rotation. Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger reported this morning that the Mets and Carl Pavano are in preliminary discussions on a potential deal, and that the interest is mutual. A lot of fans are probably not thrilled that the Mets are looking...

Mets Should Say NO To Pavano

I keep hearing rumblings the Mets are interested in Carl Pavano, who made $8.5 million last year with Minnesota at age 36. Why? While the pressures pitching for the Yankees are different than they are the Mets – the expectations in the Bronx are always greater – this is not a move they should be making. I wouldn’t want Pavano in the Mets’ rotation if he were willing to pitch...
