Justin Morneau went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, a run scored and a walk against the Marlins on Friday.

The Coors Field resurrection continues as Morneau is now batting .324 with nine home runs and 42 RBI at home this season and has been a real money-maker for those who have been wise enough to use him in home starts all year. The Rockies have him signed through next year, so it looks like we should see another solid season out of him before the team likely ushers in someone else as the first baseman of the future. While we'll never see stats like we did from the old Morneau, the ability to get 15-20 homers and a .300-plus average on the cheap would be a major bonus for fantasy owners. Unfortunately, the cat's out of the bag and his price easily escalates next year.
