With only the OF eligiblity I don't see anything to get excited about. The best thing about Cuddyer is his spot in the lineup between Mauer and Morneau.

ironman wrote:Cuddyer was a highly-touted prospect when first came up as a SS, but with nowhere to really play him he ended up platooning in RF with Bobby Kielty and Dustan Mohr and didn't see much time. He eventually took over 3B for Corey Koskie but struggled there, and then was relegated to a utility role.

The guy has always had the talent, and last season I think he just finally put it all together. With a solid role in the OF this year, he can easily produce the same numbers he did a year ago.

Although I'm going to miss his insane position eligibility from last year. Cuddyer qualified almost everywhere!


sometimes we forget that players, especially young ones, need time to get comfortable in their roles. when your team has you playing all over the field, and you don't know from one day to the net if you'll be playing, or where, it has to affect you mentally.
he finally got the chance to play one position and play every day, and his stats improved. will he be great, maybe not, but he should be a little better than average.

I will be doing a Player profile on him in the next few days!

I will post it on here for you all to go over!

My early take on himis that he had a career season last year and will fall back.. But let me look things over and get back with a little more info!

Thanks

Sweet. I will look forward to the Man in Black's profile. My take on him is similar to BB. I like him more that guys like Giles/Edmonds and think if he produces slightly better than last year I would rather pay12-15 for him rather than 30 for Abreu/Rios. Thats where they have been going in mocks Ive done.

I owned Cuddyer all of last year and got a pleasant surprise. I think he'll at least come close to last seasons performance.

I don't really follow the logic of expecting a regression from Cuddyer. For the past few seasons he's been touted as a break-out candidate. He finally broke through last year and now people expect him to regress? He's batting clean-up between Mauer and Morneau and I fully expect him to achieve similar numbers to 2006.

I like where ironhorses positional rankings place him, right on the cusp of Baldelli and Ordonez:

27. Nick Swisher, OAK
28. Jeff Francoeur, ATL
29. Rocco Baldelli, TB

30. Michael Cuddyer, MIN

31. Magglio Ordonez, DET
32. Mike Cameron, SD
33. Corey Patterson, BAL

I believe Sluggers was referring to his own question, not the OP's question.
