It wasn't long before Manny's time ended in Tampa Bay thanks to another positive drug test. Johnny Damon moved out of left field to DH and Joe Maddon turned to Sam Fuld to take on a lion share of the duties in left field.
Fuld had already shown flashes of defensive greatness early in the 2011 campaign but his bat was the biggest surprise early on as he posted a slash line of .350/.411/.525 in his first 21 games. Fuld struggled with the bat over the remainder of the season hitting .202/.278/.303 over his final 256 plate appearances. While Fuld didn't consistently produce with the bat he did continue to produce and provide the spectacular plays in the outfield.
As it is now the offseason, let's take a quick look back on some of the plays (mostly defensive). What was your favorite Sam Fuld play (offensive or defensive) or #legendofsamfuldtweet during the season?
