Count me in the majority. With Cuddyer holding out signing this long, I'm totally fine with them just walking away from that offer and signing Willingham. Willingham put up good numbers in a "pitcher-friendly" ballpark in Oakland last year and I'd rather have him locked up now than miss out on both him and Cuddyer. Cuddy can go sign with the Phillies and we'll take those draft picks.
