The one play that defines Micheal Cuddyer's contribution to the Twins

Today Michael Cuddyer has announced his retirement from baseball. For me this one play is what defines his contribution to the Minnesota Twins. 2008. Game 163 at the Chicago White Sox.


I wish I could find his post-game interview, all smiles in the dugout saying how great a season it was and there is always next season... 


The Twins finally sign a free agent in the winter meetings

The Rochester Red Wings announced that the Twins have signed 29 year old utility man Buck Britton (brother of the Orioles' Zach Britton) to a minor league contract.  He hit left-handed, can play corner infield and outfield positions and a bit of first base and has a career .253/.304/.379   AAA slash line.  Yesterday they re-signed 26 year old second baseman James Beresford.

Neither of them is a left handed pitcher who can have an impact in the 2016 bullpen.
