07:31 AM ET 11.29 | Justin Morneau is no longer the guy who won the American League MVP in 2006, nor is he the guy who finished second or won the Home Run Derby in 2008. But can Morneau be a guy who helps the Rockies? It's possible for a number of reasons. First, he's a realistic target. Unlike their failed bids for Jose Abreu (six-year, $63-million), Carlos Ruiz (two-year, $15 million with club option) and Brian McCann (unknown, but likely in the $60 million range), the Rockies are not competing with big market clubs for Morneau. ... The Rockies want Morneau. He's their primary target. I would expect the full-court press starting as soon as Friday. Ideally, the Rockies would get an answer before the winter meetings that begin Dec. 9, leaving them in position in Orlando to address their bullpen issues.

Morneau would do well in Colorado!

He could put up some huge numbers in that park. But can he recover from the concussions fully?

But if the Rockies are planning to put Cuddyer at first, why the need for Morneau?

Who's the Rockies DH?

Morneau is good guy, decent glove, but he didn't do a whole lot for Pittsburgh. I'm thinking a kid playing in AAA could put up similar numbers for a whole lot less.

Rockies will always suck as long as Monforts own the team.

True, but Bucky Dent would hit 20 home runs a year there. Even now.

More garbage shopping by the Monfarts. They should sell the Rockies and stick to the meatpacking business where the can survive by hiring cheap illegal labor.

They may be the most clueless owners in baseball. Not the worst, just clueless.

Totally agree. Can you name another club that would have let Dan O'Dowd run the show for 14 years? Me neither.

Morneau could be playing in yankees/rangers/royals/baltimore/red sox/jays/D'backs/dodgers/colorado and on any team,,,,why the agent and the media have to be so complicate?
