Twins first baseman Justin Morneau arrived at Twins training camp today, and immediately addressed the elephant in the room.

Talking with reporters, Morneau said his agent and the Twins have not discussed an extension and he’d prefer not to do it during the season.

Morneau is in the final year of a six year, $80 million contract. He's expected to be trade bait come July if the Twins are out of the playoff hunt.

But Morneau, according to MLB.com, is hoping the club will making additions this summer instead of "worrying about who were trading."

"If it looks like there’s a chance we’re going to win," Morneau said. "I’d love to stay here."
