Justin Morneau isn't going to close any doors at this point, but his preference would be to sign with a winning club this winter.
"My options are all open," he said. "I've got 30 options. Obviously some of them are less of a chance than others, but I'm open to anything right now.
"Obviously nothing can be done until five days after the World Series. I can only talk to Pittsburgh and after that it's open for everybody. I enjoyed my time there and I enjoyed my time in Minnesota. But we'll see what the best situation is for my family and myself."
Morneau went to the playoffs with the Pirates this season after an August trade, his first trip to the postseason since 2006.
"We'll see what the best fit is … for myself and the team," he said. "Obviously you can't predict the future, you say, 'This team looks like they're going to be good,' but there's nothing guaranteed for that.
"But as a player, all you can ask for at this point is a chance to win and somewhere that you're going to go and have fun. There's nothing to say that couldn't happen in Minnesota or someone else. I'm not too sure. Obviously that's not really the answer anyone was looking for, but I'm open right now and looking at the options and we'll see."
