What’s happened to Jeff Samardzija?

Other than “he got bad” I don’t want to ruffle any feathers here, but it’s possible that Giants fandom is a little more pessimistic about Jeff Samardzija’s contract than we were a couple of months ago. And at the risk of being even more preciously out on this limb, the biggest worry about him is the number of home runs he’s allowed. If you need some time to digest all...

Giants Invest In Jeff Samardzija, Dave Righetti

Want to know an easy way to provoke someone into complaining about how all professional athletes are overpaid? 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.
