|Justin Morneau's 18 home runs still|
rank fourth on the club.
This has been a long enough recovery period that the Twins (and Morneau) might be wisest to let him have the winter also. CC Sabathia was known to use Morneau for target practice in his Cleveland days; even if Morneau switches to the big helmet — and I rather hope he does — having a Sabathia heater skip off his noggin is never a good idea, and would figure to be particularly bad at this juncture.
So my take on this development: Good news for 2011; irrelevant for the 2010 postseason.
