cuddy an all star?

8 posts in this topic

i heard rick sutcliff on kfan today say he thinks cuddy will be an all star this year blush.gif as much as i would like to see this it will be very hard to down right impossible for him to go.he'll never get voted in as we all know it is a popularity contest and unless gardy is the manager he most likly wont be added.to bad he is just another example of a good player thats just not a superstar.might not be all bad though if he were to make it his price would just go up grin.gif

Let's see...right fielder Cuddyer or Guerrero? Lot's of better right fielders out there...Sheffield, if he's playing right for Detroit...is another. Fat chance for ol Cuddy I think. He did lead the AL with outfield assists last year I believe but, he's average defensively and offensively otherwise.

Going to be very hard to get votes. He is a decent OF with a very good arm and good batting numbers. But you need the glove and some web jems out there..

As long as somebody in the dugout reminds him how many outs there are, he should be fine! LOL

If I remember correctly, all three outfield positions get lumped into one. So he's not just competing against right fielders. Maybe Morneau will pull a hammy, Santana will pitch the day before the break, Nathan will be too tired after saving 70 games, Mauer will catch a cold, and Hunter will stub his big toe. The Twins still have to have one represenative at the game.

You are correct - which makes it impossible for him unless he puts up some serious offensive numbers!!!!

Cuddy would likely have to have close to MVP numbers for this season to be an All-Star next season, that's just the way it works with small market teams. I don't necessarily agree with it, but I still think it's true. Do I think he should be an All-Star this year? If he improves upon last years numbers, sure, if not, no, but he's very good.

Incidentally after some of the ridiculous things Rick Suttcliffe (sp) said in the Monday night game this week I now have to question things he says while broadcasting for other teams. Case in point, paraphrases of his Eastern media clouded bunk:

1)You know if Jeter wins the battle title last year he makes up the 15 votes to pass Mourneau.

2)Joe Mauer winning the batting title on the last day of the season gave him the MVP. (He didn't win it on the last day, he could have sat out & won it, he was already leading. He didn't sit out & went & got two more hits to prove he deserved it!)

3)How much higher could have Jeter's average been if he wasn't doing all the little things to get runners over batting in the two hole? (What, Mauer doesn't do those things in the three hole? Mauer attempted to bunt the runner over twice last night alone (4/11)! What about the virtual All-Star lineup batting all around Jeter, so they can't pitch around him?)

Rick was rickdiculous!

      The Department of Natural Resources designated the state’s third groundwater management area this week. The Straight River Groundwater Management Area in northwestern Minnesota includes parts of southern Clearwater, northeast Becker, southwest Hubbard and northwest Wadena counties. Cities within the boundary include Park Rapids, Osage and Ponsford.  In addition to the designation, the DNR approved a management plan for it. The plan lays out five objectives with specific actions the DNR will take to ensure that use of groundwater remains sustainable within the area. The plan was developed over several years with the help of an internal DNR project team, an advisory team of external stakeholders, and additional public review and discussion. “With more than 10,000 lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and many thousands of acres of wetlands, it might be natural to think that our water is essentially unlimited,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “But in some parts of the state, the unseen, underground aquifers that make up our groundwater resources are under pressure to meet growing needs for domestic water supplies, irrigation, industrial and other uses. These groundwater resources also are interconnected with lakes, streams and wetlands that we value for commerce, recreation, and water supplies. Those surface waters also provide the habitat needed by many animals and plants. If we are not careful in how we use water, both economic development and ecosystems could be put at risk.” The plan provides a framework within which the DNR will work with major water users, including municipalities and agricultural irrigators, to use groundwater sustainably. This cooperative effort will promote conservation, protect surface waters and water quality, improve the groundwater appropriations permitting process, and help resolve any conflicts that might arise among users. This is one of three groundwater management areas being established around Minnesota. The other two are in the north and east metropolitan area and in the Bonanza Valley near Paynesville in west-central Minnesota. More information, including plans and maps for the Straight River Groundwater Management Area, can be found at on the management area webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.
