After telling a reporter this week that it "would be very cool" to play for the Blue Jays, Justin Morneau is downplaying the comments a bit.

"I said if [the Twins] decided to move me, if I'm not playing here, I want to play someplace where I could win," Morneau said. "He asked about Toronto. But right now, it's just another team in the American League. It's hard for me to talk about another team, because I'm trying to win here."

He is Canadian and the Blue Jays were his favorite team as a child.

"It's really hard to speculate about that stuff. Nobody knows what's going to happen, and if I had my preference, I'd stay here," Morneau said. "But it's not up to me."
