A team could sign Cuddyer for probably way too much to regress back to the .260's (which would make him one of this team's average leaders, unfortunately) or less. No to Cuddyer. Yes to Torii, the ageless wonder. I doubt Torii would accept, however.

I'd give Cuddyer a 1 year deal, have him compete with Plouffe etc for the last OF spot.

Plouffe will still be at 3B for next season. The first half at least. I would gladly welcome Cuddyer back for a fair 1 year or 1 year with option. The 2015 team will need a proven vet, or two, in the heart of the lineup to help the team produce, hopefully win, to help the kids learn how to win, and conversely, provide professional examples. Who better than Cuddy if he has something left, which it appears he does.

They don't need a proven veteran, they need talent. If that happens to be a veteran, that does not block a prospect, fine. But proven veteraniness for veteraniness' sake? No thank you.

One of the best opening day rosters in years. Now go get 'em.

Abosolutely, just seek talent first. I'd take a 5+ WAR season from a player regardless of their age.
