No more ‘Super Sam’? Say it isn’t so!


I read in the Trib that one of my favorite Rays was not offered a new contract, and I’m really bummed. In the past few seasons “Super Sam” Fuld has given the Rays and us his all every time he stepped onto the field. Some of the catches he has made are legendary and could easily be called ridiculously fabulous. He plays baseball the way it is supposed to be played — hard and fast. Baseball is a business, and your favorite team’s players come and go, like Carl Crawford, but you still follow them because you love to watch them play. Sam, you are on that list, and we will be cheering for you no matter who you play for. Thank you for that big smile that let us know you were loving every minute of it.

Best of luck, Sam.
