07:15 AM ET 08.22 | The M&M designation has changed in its perception over the years, but four-time All-Star Justin Morneau doesn't see a departure from the Twin Cities. "I think there would have to be some kind of long-term injury to somebody on one of those (contending) teams," Morneau said. ... [On Tuesday] Morneau had a game that surely raised interest around the league: He went 4 for 5 with a home run and four RBI in a 6-3 win over the Detroit Tigers. Although Morneau said he has heard "nothing" on the possibility of a trade, his homer Tuesday as his seventh of the month -- tied for second-most in the majors. One source told FOXSports.com that the money owed to Morneau -- more than $3 million over the remainder of this season -- has been the biggest barrier to interest in him.

It isn't the money left in his contract that causes teams to not go after him. It is the phone conversations we never hear about on what the Twins want in return for a guy who will be FA when the season ends and how much more than the $14 million he gets this year the guy will want and for how many years.

My 2nd note to fannation

The issues with the site continue - this is at least day 3. I don't know what was done - but you have effectively started to drive away your customer base. If that is what you intended? Fine. It's working. Look at the comment counts. They have plummeted - I am sure your advertisers might see that as a loss of potential proceeds. This has gone on long enough......

Hope it gets fixed - someday.

Again - not able to go to any page beyond 1 for each thread.

And - unable to quote. I have used two different browsers - and both IE and Firefox experience the same issues.
