Josh Willingham‘s three-year, $21 million deal with the Twins isn’t finalized yet, but it sounds just about official and that means the man he’s replacing in Minnesota, Michael Cuddyer, could also be on the verge of choosing a new team.

Cuddyer has been linked to Colorado all offseason and Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies are “still firmly in the mix to get Cuddyer” and it “could happen today.”

Cuddyer delayed his decision on the Twins’ three-year, $25 million offer to the point that they simply decided to move on, so presumably he felt confident about having a similar (or better) deal on the table elsewhere.

    If true, farewell Cuddy! Enjoyed you the last ten seasons, but will be happy with a cheaper version of you (Willingham) and the draft picks for the Rockies signing you. Hope you do well in the mile high air!!

    7 million a year is well worth the money and a good move for the Rockies. Plays several positions, lots of pop, and a great guy in the clubhouse.
