The Twins have declined their option on Cristian Guzman, making him eligible for free agency. Although Guzman's numbers against lefties are fairly good, he hits righties worse than Eckstein and will likely command between one and three million dollars more than Eckstein. He's only 26, which is a plus, but again there's just no reason to think he'd have a better 2005 than Eck.
