Former Cubs Sam Fuld is coming into his own with Tampa Bay.
Since being traded from the Cubs this January in the Matt Garza deal, the little slugger has shined for the Rays.
As we’ve come to expect from Fuld, his defense has been stellar. Just check out the catch he made last Saturday against the White Sox. Unreal!
But it’s his unexpected offensive outburst that has everyone taking notice.
*News this morning that Moreland is in as Santo’s replacement. Here’s a quick post from last April.
Interesting fact about Keith Moreland, who’s been filling in this week for Ron Santo on WGN radio. (Santo, by the way, returns for the Milwaukee series this weekend).
Not only was Moreland co-captain of the 1975 NCAA Champion Texas Longhorns, but he’s also second all-time for most hits in the College World Series (23) set from 1973-75.
Who’s first on that list? None other than the Cubs’ Sam Fuld, who clubbed 24 hits in the College World Series!
Moreland spent most of his six years in Chicago playing the corner outfield positions. Although he’s best remembered as a member of the ’84 division winning Cubs, his best season came the following year in Chicago: .307, 14 HR, 106 RBI.
