Great news for me since I have Mourneau, especially since he's tearing it up at AAA:
Justin Morneau went 3-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI for Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday. He's now batting .500 (14-for-28) with two home runs and 11 RBI in seven games. And he hasn't struck out yet.
As far as god is concerned, if he starts using an energy consuming kind of blower or electric blanket, I’ll kick his ass too.

4 people nationwide? Try getting in a league with more than 12 people and a corner infielder. Better yet, get in an AL only league. Morneau can be a stud. Before the season I read he's a future .300/40 HR hitter without a spot in the lineup. Now he may have a spot. I think that's interesting.
Doug Mientkiewicz is listed as day-to-day with a sprained right ankle.
Justin Morneau apparently will remain in Triple-A for a little while longer. Jose Offerman will fill in at first base should Mientkiewicz miss any additional time, opening up at-bats for Michael Cuddyer and Michael Ryan.
I am one of the four people that have Mientkiewicz....You would be surprised how good he is when the league counts OBP and Slugging....I seriously hope he's not that seriously injured...he's been doing really well for me with all his walks and doubles.
