I just learned that Michael Cuddyer has a Flickr account where he posts pictures of ballparks the Twins visit.

Here, for example, is the Red Sox visiting clubhouse.

Neat stuff.

Wow! Certainly the entire Boston folder (76 shots) is worth a look (here).

Splitting off from the ALCS thread. Cuddyer has an excellent eye for framing -- these pictures are worth a look.

Some people think photography is so easy, but it's not. It takes a certain knack and you're right: he has it.

My new favorite Minnesota Twin. Seriously, he has a really good eye and executes well. I really like the third base close-up with the Monster in the background.

These are fantastic. Thanks, Nvalvo. I love this one.

This one is really cool too.

Thanks for sharing. Very cool pics. Who knew Cuddyer had a pretty good eye. He certainly knows what he is doing with his 7D. Very impressive.

Really surprising how good they are, loved this one, new desktop.

Also, went looking for all the clubhouse shots. Fenway's is so depressing compared to others.

A bit taken aback by his calling this one "the myth". OK, that would go with calling Ted's shot 600 feet. Nice pics.

To think that my off-topic ramblings in the ALCS thread became my first Main Board topic... thanks, Sprowl!

One sometimes gets the sense that many pro ballplayers are not really fans like we are, which totally makes sense. What I think I really loved in all of his shots was the sense that he really loves the minutiae of the game in the way that many of us do.

When I won the Play a Day at Fenway auction a couple years back, Jim Corsi pitched to us. Afterwards we were in the visitors clubhouse, and I asked him how it compared to others. "Worst in the majors," he said.

You do get a sense of the time spent taking these photos. Indeed, some players are fans. Thanks for sharing.

How about the fact that Marquis Jets advertises in the visiting lockerroom?

Great shots.

Maximizing revenue at every turn. These guys don't miss a beat. I mean, how many fans at the ballpark or watching at home are in Marquis Jets' target demographic? Probably not enough for Marquis to bother paying for a sign along the outfield wall. But how many visiting ball players can afford to avail themselves of Marquis' services? Probably a big enough percentage to make the sign worth it. Seems brilliant to me.

I was impressed that he knew to shoot Fenway spots like the Pesky Pole plaque and the one red seat.

Most ballplayers, I'm sure, have absolutely no clue about what those mean, or anything referring to events more than 10 years old.

Great shot of the crapper in the bullpen. Unfortunately it appears to have gotten clogged around the end of August and overflowed onto the field for all of September.

And can these really be electric heaters under the bench in the dugout? Good lord, how much baksheesh is the Fire Inspector getting from the Red Sox?

They look a whole lot like the forced hot water heating elements in my house, so it's possible no baksheesh was necessary. (They also look like they haven't been painted in about 30 years.)

From the Globe:

19. The Red Sox will sign Michael Cuddyer

A righthanded-hitting right fielder who hit .311 with 10 homers and a .993 OPS in 176 plate appearances against lefty pitching? Yep, he sounds like a pretty good fit -- and he does seem to have a fondness for Fenway. (h/t Sons of Sam Horn).
