I think Yahoo! had Samardzija on their Front Page not too long ago and claimed he was the next big thing. I believe that article had something to do with him being added like Max Scherzer. I'm in the non-believer camp.

The Shark obviously has some nice potential, but I do not see much value for him this season. I would obviously love to see him do very well, but would only look at him in a dynasty with a minor league system or really deep bench.

i have a feeling the cubs are eventually going to use him like the yanks have with joba. his stuff is nasty, but like most of the others, i doubt he has much value this year. he also needs to work on his control.

I think this was already mentioned, but between Yahoo hyping him and him being a big player for Notre Dame football, it's completely understandable.

He's got plenty of opportunity to grab some random saves here and there.

You should see my league, everyone is a Cubs fan. One guy added him and two others posted "YOU BASTARD" on the message board. All the while I'm sitting here with WW pickups Kemp, B. Wilson, B. Molina, Bills, Marcum, and Giambi.....just laughing. :-)


Wow, Billingsley is an FA in your league? Now that's just pathetic. Go pick him up now, I guarantee he's better than your worst player.

I think he's saying those *are* some of his WW acquisitions. ;D
