I see both Michael Cuddyer and Josh Willingham as part-time players because of questions about their bats and their inability to play defense anywhere where their bats would profile. And of the contracts they each signed over the last couple of days, Willingham's three-year, $21 million deal with the Minnesota Twins makes a lot more sense to me than Cuddyer's three-year, $31.5 million deal with the Colorado Rockies.
