  • Anything new on Jeff Samardzija?

    Samardzija is now in the bullpen for the Peoria Chiefs as his 2nd year of pro baseball has continued to be incosistant. I pose this question. Are there teams that will be callig him about his services yet?

        He is stupid. I would prefer to be a star and make good money than be 'just another guy' and make a ton.

                Yes thats true, but are the Cubs willing to put up the cash for a few more season of average or below average stats? If they release him then the cash would be his if I am not mistaken, which would leave him free to pursue NFL possibilities right?

                  He shouldn't have expected to do that good so early anyways. Give him a few years, then if he can't pitch he'll change to football.

                    He was a first round pick possetion reciever, and viewed as close to a sure thing as far as production. A poor mans Larry Fitzgerald is what a lot of people said. He had a much better shot to be a probowler than an allstar.

                      If I had to choose between the two for me personally it would be baseball. Guaranteed money with larger contracts on top of that plus less wear and tear on the body.

                        Nothing is a sure thing, he wasn't guaranteed to be doing anything special in the NFL....

                        I guess I'm just most critical of your original assumption, and that you claim you'd choose football over baseball in his situation. Saying you'd rather have the pride or glory over the money is one thing...actually taking the pride over the money is another. I'd have a hard time believing that few if any people on here would actaully make that choice, when I'm sure that he personally was just as confident in his own baseball skills as he was his football skills.

                          thank you, it was the same decision for bo jackson as well...baseball pays alot more to the best athletes, and the mediocre athletes are paid alot higher then mediocre football athletes, especially with him being a pitches...


                          he could play WR in the NFL, and take that punishment day in and out for a long time to come, or he could be a pitcher, make more money, and not even have to play every day with no physical contact...hmmm wonder what id take

                            I guarantee I would choose the NFL, but that is just because I think football is>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>more fun than baseball.

                              JS made a good choice. He's getting more guaranteed, a better signing bonus, and there isn't nearly as much pressure in the minors as there is in the majors.

                              I read he was just ranked as a top 150 prospect in the minors by Baseball America.
