Position: Right-handed SP 2015 Stats: 214 IP, 17.9 K%, 5.4 BB%, 1.8 WARP, 4.96 ERA, 4.31 DRA How He Fits: There are two ways of thinking among Cubs fans on how Jeff Samardzija fits with the Cubs; some say he’s a tremendous fit, others say “no way.” But the simple fact is that one of […]
The Chicago Cubs reached the National League Championship Series in 2015, a full year before they were even expected to be competitive. Now, armed with an incredibly young offensive core and a newly-minted Cy Young Award winner in Jake Arrieta, the Cubs are poised to be National League favorites heading into the 2016 season.

There was that called strike against Ben Revere at nearly the worst possible time. That wasn’t great, and I’m sure there are some Blue Jays fans who are still fuming. Shortly before that, there was a similar called strike against Dioner Navarro. Rough...
After falling to the Houston Astros in the Wild Card game on Tuesday, the New York Yankees’ offseason has officially begun.
