It has been reported by Bruce Levine that the Cubs may be after Jeff Samardzija this offseason.
Samardzija put up a 7.4 WAR in 2.5 seasons with the Cubs, but he did not leave on the best terms. Jeff made comments about the Cubs rebuilding process that made a lot of fans upset. Now that time has past are Cub fans still upset about this? We will see.
“It’s expected the Cubs will try to make another [pitcher trade], perhaps chasing Giants right-hander Jeff Samardzija (three years, $59 million left on his deal) or Rays right-hander Chris Archer (four years and $34 million left if two team options are exercised),” Levine writes.
