MIAMI – Jeff Samardzija’s future will continue to dominate the talk around the Cubs, but don’t expect the breakthrough that keeps him on the North Side.
PHILADELPHIA – Jeff Samardzija is a homegrown player who’s not afraid of the big-market pressures. He has the 6-foot-5, 225-pound frame to carry 200 innings.
It sounds like Manny Ramirez will get to Triple-A Iowa before Kris Bryant.
It’s two months into the season, the Cubs have the worst record in baseball and they’re nowhere close to hitting rock bottom.
The Manny Ramirez experiment could blow up in the Cubs' face, but for what it's worth, he's saying all the right things at the moment.
