Sam Fuld off season update.

Sam Fuld is now back playing for  Aragua Tigres  in Venezuela. He has been there less than a week because he was  a little preoccupied with the birth of his first child a bouncing baby boy ( 8.2 pounds ) was born  on Dec 3. I rather enjoy this bit from one of the local paper's in New Hampshire where he lives.

"The Cubs reportedly are interested in trading outfielder Milton Bradley, which could increase Fuld's chances of making the team out of spring training.

"I know they've talked about moving Milton. A lot will be determined how that plays out," he said. "I'm not going to worry about anything that's out of my hands. I'll be going to spring training with a relaxed state of mind. I'm not going to play scared like everything is riding on my spring training performance."

Really the Cubs are "reportedly" interested in trading Bradley ? Those New Englanders do have a way with understatement.

I was also amused by  this article  regarding how his wife always has the upper hand in any family discussions on athletic abilities but hopefully some day he can pass her.

"Fuld might not even be the best athlete in his family. Sarah played lacrosse at Princeton and won two national championships, something Sam was never able to accomplish at Stanford.


"She'll always have that on me," he said. "She won two national championships. She always reminds me of that. When she brings it up I have nothing to say. It's like the ultimate trump card."

Unless the Cubs win their first World Series in more than a century.

"That would be nice," Fuld said."
