I don't follow the Rays closely at all, so I'm looking for information on how they are going to handle the OF (Sam Fuld) with Manny gone. Also, when Longoria comes back...? How much time is Fuld actually going to get?

I'm in a mixed H2H league with limited transactions (50). My OF is stacked as it is (start 4, 1 Util) with Braun, Pence, Chris Young, Tabata, Snider, and Bourjos. I don't want to drop Bourjos for Fuld if Fuld is going to be riding the pine in 2 weeks.... Any thoughts?

Unless you're Longo or Upton, you're just a Maddon chess piece. That means unless you can play everywhere like Zobrist, you are not getting into the lineup consistently enough to be worth interest at the moment.

I came up w/ a nickname for him...

Fuld's Gold

And because I think it's funny, i'll continue to blast it everywhere even if i'm not 100% sure I agree w/ myself. Is he just another Sparky Anklebiter that shows up on the scene to ignite a dying team/fan base only to fizzle away as quickly as he came in? I'm inclined to say yes. Why? I dunno.....

I think his Defense will keep him in a bunch of games, but I can't see too many ways for him to fit into the lineup when Longo comes back. They're handing out capes with the kids name on it and shizz...

My vote for play of the year (Damn MLB Network still thinks the Indians Triple Play is the one to beat...BALOG-uh..KNEE!)

They even have a "The Legend of Sam Fuld" twitter account and it's pretty hilarious:

Even Maddon is getting in on the fun. Now that Manny is gone they're scraping for marketable players and the fans are grabbing on hard to Fuld. May keep him in more games and he's definitely deserving the PT right now.


At some point it gets hard to ignore...but i'm gunna try to keep ignoring it until I just can't stand it anymore..


Lol @ Superman wears Sam Fuld Pajamas...
