07:12 AM ET 07.10 | The bidding may just wind up being right for moving All-Star right fielder Michael Cuddyer. [MLB clubs] are watching the Rockies closely, viewing them as possible sellers and targeting [Cuddyer] as a potential acquisition, according to major league sources. The Rockies have not discussed Cuddyer with other teams, sources say. Cuddyer is under contract next season for $10.5 million, and the club intends for him to take over first base from Todd Helton, who is in the final year of his deal. ... The Rangers and Pirates, however, are among the contenders that want to add a right-handed slugger like Cuddyer. A number of other teams -- including the Reds, Rays, Yankees and Giants -- also would figure to have interest.

He's a Red Sox killer.

They're not going to trade a .336 hitter, with 1 yr remaining on a reasonable contract, while in the middle of a pennant race out West.

I agree. What's comical is they list the Rays as a potential trade partner. The Rays aren't adding $10MM to the payroll.

A variation of a Led Zep tune.

But the Yankees can get anyone they want, whenever they want.

Not since George.

Listening to the Rox HOF beat writer, Tracy Ringolsby, there is virtually no scenario that could make any trade of Cuddy happen. Letting Holliday go after 08 cost them way more than they expected.

Letting Holliday go got them Carlos Gonzalez - a much better player. Not a good insight on your part. And I agree - the Rockies are right in the thick of the NL West and there's no reason for them to be sellers at this point, especially with Troy Tulowitzki and Dexter Fowler both coming back from injuries this weekend.
