Big News Coming!

The Twins have scheduled a 4 p.m. press conference to be held today at TwinsFest, and word is that they are set to announce long term deals with outfielder Michael Cuddyer and former MVP winner Justin Morneau.

According to reports, Morneau's deal will lock him up for six seasons, and pay him around $75 million. Cuddyer on the other hand will be getting a three-year deal worth around $23 million. Indications are that Cuddyer's deal will possibly have a option for a fourth season.

I'll have more when the news is official, but what a great way to open up TwinsFest, and what a great day to be a Twins fan.

Will this signify Santana staying possibly long term also? Time will tell...
