Michael Cuddyer: Our All-Star

Congrats to Michael Cuddyer on making the AL All-Star squad as a reserve.

Though perhaps not utterly deserving based purely on the stats, I’m glad Cuddy will be making the trip to Arizona next week because of what he means to the Twins organization.

All teams need leaders, and Michael is exactly that right now for this team.  He came up through the Twins’ system as a blue-chip prospect, is the only player to be a part of every Twins division title since 2002, and will play anywhere you ask him (I’ve seen him at first, second, third, left, center, and right).

So, in a down year for individual Twins, I’m excited that Cuddy gets this thrill.  I even have a crazy idea for AL skipper Ron Washington: Remember Caesar Tover?  Well, how about a similar Cuddy experiment July 12?!  Think about it…!

Great for Cuddyer that he made the AL All Star team! He is more than well-deserving. And I’m glad Brandon League and “King Felix” made it for the Mariners. If you have time, check out my blog at http://wittwriter15.mlblogs.com/ thanks!
