Return to Target Field stirs emotions for Morneau

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Nov. 23, 2006 edition of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune showcased a 25-year-old version of Justin Morneau, beaming with youthful exuberance upon winning the American League MVP award.

Justin Morneau Sure Would Look Great in a Brewers Uniform

Colorado signs Justin Morneau for two years, still has no idea what they are doing

On the heels of their puzzling trade of Dexter Fowler to Houston, a trade seemingly done to clear payroll space, the Rockies have announced that they signed first baseman Justin Morneau to a two-year, $13 million contract.

Pittsburgh Pirates: Nutting’s financial commitment again called into question

(Opening image credit pennlive)   I think fans truly want to believe that when the moment is right, owner Bob Nutting will finally invest significant dollars into the Major League payroll of the Pittsburgh Pirates.  Despite years of gifted revenue sharing dollars and lucrative MLB television contracts- and despite promises of “competitive payrolls” after largely taxpayer-financed...
