Rumormill: Michael Cuddyer And The Seattle Mariners

Jeff Sullivan, over at Lookout Landing wrote an excellent piece on our local former favorite clubhouse magician. I thought this last paragraph summed up the generally prevailing sentiment around here rather well (just substitute Mariners for Twins): I think Cuddyer could easily end up being worth the contract he wants, based on free agent valuation. About that three years, $30 million idea - over the last three years, FanGraphs pegs Cuddyer as being worth $30.1 million. I don't think Cuddyer shapes up to be a nightmare. But his upside is being worth about what he's paid, and maybe a little more, while his downside is being worth much less than that. It just doesn't seem like the sort of move the Mariners should make, given the Mariners' situation, and given the Mariners' payroll.
