As with the Byrd deal, I'm glad he got paid, and I'm glad it wasn't the Pirates who gave him that deal.

Morneau, if used correctly, could provide veteran leadership, strong first base defense (something that can’t be discounted for Todd Helton’s replacement) and a weapon against right-handed pitching. There are concerns from scouts I trust that Morneau’s bat has slowed after he batted .259 with 17 home runs and 53 extra-base hits last season.
But the last three seasons have shown him to be a credible force against righties. He has hit .282 with a .355 on-base percentage, while averaging an extra-base hit every 8.9 at-bats. That figure would likely get a bump at Coors Field. He has just five home runs against lefties the last three seasons. [Renck]
