What do you guys think of Samardzija?

I got to see him play at Notre Dame, both baseball and football, this year and he is a great athlete. He's got some great speed, but needs to develop his off-speed pitches. I think he'll be in Cubbie blue in no time.

I do hope he makes it to the Major's soon, because I think 10 million is ridiculous for a minor leaguer.

I'm optimistic. I hope he can crack the majors within a short period of time.

I reckon he'll spend most of his time in Tenn this season, maybe a callup to Iowa late on. We're pretty deep at SP at ML and AAA so I think he'll get his time to develop, which can only be a good thing. Has to be remembered that he would have gone MUCH higher in the draft if other teams hadnt figured on him playing football instead, maybe the best pitcher we've drafted since Prior?

Having said he ought to be in Tenn, anything could happen (ie, trading away Marshall, Guzman, Mateo if we have a bad spell of injuries) so maybe Iowa.

I hope he makes it to the big league club soon too. I don't see it happening this year or even next year, but I think he will do fine. I really like his attitude and desire to play for the Cubs.

Thank you! I like Granger. Sometimes it's a little too "high end" for me, but it's a great place to raise kids! I think Samardzija is going to have plenty of time to develop as well. Cubs have a lot of good pitching talent in the farm.

Well, you can't have too much pitching.

He's got some promise, but no point in rushing him. I can see him getting a crack in 2009...

Baseball America compares him to John Smoltz. They rank him our #4 prospect behind Pie, Veal, & Colvin.
