Deep pts. league. Need to keep one more, either Morneau or Plouffe. Projections for Plouffe seem to me low: before he injured his thumb on 7/20, he was not only mashing HRs but hitting for a very high average.
Given that Target Field seems to be a lot more HR-friendly to RH hitters than LH hitters–and that Plouffe is younger–wouldn’t he be a wiser choice? (I don’t need either a 1B or 3B–thinking more of trade value down the line.)

Morneau “might” give you more value in trade, if you can find a trade partner that likes “name value” as well as statlines. But, thats about it for Morneau. Me, I am inclined to go with Plouffe. Sure, he was never projected to do what he did early last yr. but, he wouldnt be the first to exceed expectations.
