Jeff Samardzija says he was tipping pitches during 2015 season

    Jeff Samardzija says his career-worst 2015 season was down to him tipping his pitches. The right-hander had an ERA under 4 over the three seasons prior to last, but Samardzija’s 2015 was one to forget, with his ERA ballooning to 4.96 and leading the league in hits, earned runs, and home runs allowed. Samardzija believes there is a simple explanation. “When you’re...

Giants Invest In Jeff Samardzija, Dave Righetti

Tell this person there was a pitcher last year who led all of baseball in both hits and runs allowed. And I mean “led” in the bad way, not the good way. Let that sink in, then tell the person the pitcher was a free agent, and finally tell the person that pitcher signed...

Why Samardzija’s rumored contract is a problem for MLB

Nothing that Jeff Samardzija has done in his career as a starting pitcher would indicate that he’s worth a five-year deal worth somewhere between $80 million-$100 million. Really, it’s not even close.

After falling to the Houston Astros in the Wild Card game on Tuesday, the New York Yankees’ offseason has officially begun. While it is clear that they need help in more than one position, starting pitching will likely be amongst the targets this winter.
