With OF Sam Fuld returning from the disabled list Tuesday, manager Joe Maddon hopes he can provide a "sequel" to last season, when he became the "Legend of Sam Fuld." Maddon tried to think of a few titles for No. 2, with "On the Fuld Again," "Fuldfather Part II" and "Austin Powers' Fuldmember" his favorites.
Quote of the day
"Sam Fuld is the reason the Rays were the Rays last year. … He was our spark plug."
LHP David Price on what impact OF Sam Fuld's return could provide.
