Pirates got a steal here! Morneau is a hard worker had a bad luck concussion. He was finally putting things together, if he chokes the rest of the season he becomes a cheap FA, if he becomes a force in the playoff race, his stock rises, and he could cash in on one last long term contract.
Good luck, Guy did great things on an OFF the field, very involved in community.
