Twins Pick Up Cuddyer Option

7 Nov

also available at

The Twins had until Monday but to no one’s surprise, the Twins have picked up the 2011 option on Michael Cuddyer’s contract. He will make $10.5 million in 2011 after he makes $8.5 million in 2010. This was an easy decision. It allows them to continue to negotiate a potential extension, but after a strong 32 home run season in which he carried the team for the final month of the year, this was an easy choice.

Any thoughts?

    To no one’s surprise–in other words, the easy step. I live in DC and one of many, many mistakes the Redskins have made over the years is not retaining solid veterans. Here’s hoping the Twins are smart enough to keep Cuddyer locked up for years to come.
