Michael Cuddyer‘s curious reluctance to sign either one of what seem like two more-than-fair offer from the Rockies or Twins appears to be at an end. Troy Renck reports that the Rockies expect to strike a deal with Cuddyer, possibly as soon as today.

The offer on the table — which the Rockies say isn’t getting any better — is three-years, $27 million.

    His wife just gave birth to twins, so it seems like he could take a week off before deciding.

      On the contrary, I’d say that’s a SIGN of what to do….

        Yep, I concur with Francisco. I said the same thing yesterday.

    If what I read is correct, then Cuddyer signing with the Colorado Rockies makes no sense at all. His long-time club, from minors to the bigs…is the Minnesota Twins. who
    offered him 3 years at $24 million. Taking the Rockies $27 million over 3years, uprooting the family, playing the majority of your games on the West Coast (his wife’s & his hometown is in VA) and moving to a new league (w/o the DH) for a CO team that only won 10 more games last year than the Twins (in a real down year) sounds like a losing proposition to me.

    I just now noticed you spelled his name wrong, Craig. Even funnier because it’s my name, too.
