Minnesota Twins self-loathing: Morneau, Liriano, Pirates share NL Central lead

When Justin Morneau isn't doing it with his bat, he's doing it with his glove for his new Bucs squad.

Here's video of Morneau flashing some leather on the other end of a great play by shortstop Jordy Mercer.

Here's more video of Morneau saving a run in the fourth inning with an important catch behind first base.

These plays aren't the headline though, the real story is the Pirates as a whole, who are now tied atop the NL Central with their 3-1 win over Chicago last night, after not finishing above .500 since 1992.

Oh yeah, they also have this former Target Field dweller. We just call the Pirates Twins east.
