It sounds like a good fit for both Morneau and the Rockies. I thought it was unlikely he'd come back anyway. But, the list of free agent 1B's that we could put in a platoon with Gaby Sanchez without being embarrassed about it is getting pretty short (down to five letters L-O-N-E-Y). There are always trades. But, you have to give something up to get something. There are always non-tenders coming up (which could throw Garrett Jones back into consideration although he might prefer the AL). I wonder if it's too late to swap McPherson for somebody's AAA 1B to stash in our back pocket as a backup plan in case other options dry up.
