Morneau is 3-for-18 (.167) this spring, but none of the stats matter to him -- not the average, and not the number of Cactus League at-bats.
"It's more of a feeling than it is a number," Morneau said. "I just want to feel like I don't need to cheat to get to the ball inside. I can go down the street [to Minor League camp] and get 10 at-bats in a day if I want to when they're playing intrasquad games.
"It's getting to that pitch without thinking about getting to it. It takes a little while. It's a trust thing."
