Chicago Cubs interested in reunion with Jeff Samardzija

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.

Jeff Samardzija an interesting name for Phillies to consider

In my mind, there is no more interesting free-agent case this winter to watch than that of Jeff Samardzija. The tall right-hander out of Notre Dame was content to play out the 2015 season on a one-year deal with an eye on testing free agency. Max Scherzer made a similar bet on himself before the […]

The Worst Called Ball of the Season

The playoffs are over, and as balls and strikes go, the tournament wasn’t overly controversial. There were some misses, sure. 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...

Should the New York Yankees pursue Jeff Samardzija?

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.
