Just as every team wants a closer, Jeff Samardzija needs what I will term as an opener – which is different from a starter. Allow me to explain by reviewing Shark’s 2014 season with the Chicago White Sox: Shark is currently 4-3 with a 4.68 ERA.

Even though he was going to be the number two pitcher in the rotation, the expectation was that he would really be pitcher 1-A.

Fantasy Roundup: What To Do With Samardzija

Odds are if you’re a Jeff Samardzija owner you’re not too happy this morning. I thought he was being slightly over drafted (16th and 18th among starting pitchers in ESPN and NFBC, respectively) because he was being drafted as a near bona fide ace. He has the raw stuff to be a top 1- real life pitcher — the fastball sits 94-95 and the splitter and slider are true bat-missers...
