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!

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
