Justin, we hardly knew ye.

Actually, we knew ye pretty well. So well that we feel qualified to gather your best moments, your parting feelings, other's feelings, and more noteable happenings from your MLB career and put them here as a bow on your days in Minnesota.

Career highlights: The Star Tribune has put together a comprehensive look at Justin's career, so why re-do what they did so well? You can find it here.

Here's a video compilation of some of his top moments as well, if you're nostalgic, it may get you a bit teary eyed.

Here's some video claiming Morneau is the terminator.

Here's Morneau's performance at the 2008 Home Run Derby.

Opinions: Some think the Morneau trade is understandable, here's an account from that side of the aisle.

One blogger is unsettled about Justin leaving.

Reaction: Morneau left Twins fans with a letter for the ages, which you can see here.

One site feels passionate enough about Justin's time in Minnesota, that they've written a letter back to him.

The last 48 hours: Here is Morneau's final hit with the Twins, fittingly, it was a game-winning home run.

Here's teammates reactions to his departure. As expected, many kind words.

Justin arrived in Pittsburgh a day later, in bucs black and gold. Strange to see.

Recognize that face around the 1:00 mark of the video? Yep, you got it, a reunion with former Twin Francisco Liriano.

What did Justin do in his first game with Pittsburgh today? Take a look.

What do we have to show for Morneau? Here's a short profile on one Alex Presley (three hits in his Twins debut). Here's his career to date.

The Twins also receive a player to be named later, which they reportedly will not get to choose, or cash. Some believe it will be the latter, coming in the form of 27-year old Duke Welker.

There you have it, we'll leave you with this tweet, a different but equally saddening angle to Morneau leaving.

Even more sad knowing there is now only one of them left.
