Pitching for the Cubs must stink:

Jeff Samardzija has started 10 games for the Cubs this year, and in those 10 games he has pitched 68 innings, struck out 54 batters, and allowed just 11 earned runs. In three of those starts, he allowed zero earned runs; he allowed just one earned run in three other starts. Jeff Samardzija has a 1.46 ERA, and his record is 0-4.

Jeff Samardzija had a couple of excellent seasons at Notre Dame as a WR.

I thought he was going to be a good WR in the NFL.

I remember thinking he was a fool for giving up football to play baseball, but it was probably a smart decision.

Samardzija will play baseball a lot longer and will make more money playing baseball than he would have playing football....and he'll retire and be able to play with his grandkids.

Samardzija will likely get traded this season. Yankees will probably do everything possible to try and land him but not sure they'll have the ammo.

I think a lot of people will be gunshy on trading for him though as he will most likely be a half season rental since he's a free agent.

Do the Yankees have enough to trade for him though? I know the Rockies would be a great fit for him, but I don't want them to give up prospects for half a season of him.

Maybe. Jon Heyman has them as the most likely trade partner.

Samardizija is under control through next year not a FA, but will certainly be costly, obviously.

That was pretty agonizing to watch today.

I usually don't get the games because I live in the deep south. I finally get to watch a whole series because we always get Atlanta games, and CO totally s**ts the bed in game 3. Depressing.

When I saw the score I thought of you and wondered if you'd post.

Agreed, GO BRAVES!

Jeff would be under arbitration another year before becoming a total free agent. He is earning $5.5 mil this year, so that would increase next year before a giant contract.

Either way, a team is not going to be paying him a meager $5.5 mil next year. And I don't see how the Yankees can give up anything to get him. Yankees farm system isn't that great at the moment, and honestly trading for Jeff would only hamper it that much more.

Miguel Carbera has turned it on after a slow start to the season and is now batting .330 with 18 doubles, 9 HRs, and 48 RBIs.

Victor Martinez is actually having an even better season than Miggy thus far. V-Mart is batting .349 with 13 doubles, 13 HRs, and 34 RBIs.

The most impressive stat for Victor Martinez is that he has as many HRs (13) as he does strikeouts (13) on the season.
