• Samardzija regretting decision? Things haven't exactly gone as planned for Jeff Samardzija, the former Notre Dame wide receiver who eschewed the chance to be perhaps an NFL first-rounder in favor of a baseball-exclusive contract with the Chicago Cubs, but he's not ready to switch sports yet. Pitching for the Daytona Cubs of the Class-A Florida State League, Samardzija currently is 0-5 and has a 5.22 ERA. In 17 games, including 13 starts, Samardzija has pitched 69 innings and surrendered 93 hits and 24 walks, has just 25 strikeouts and has allowed opponents a .330 batting average. Samardzija isn't ready to give up, though, on baseball, and the Cubs, who made a huge investment to keep him off the football field, remain confident that he will turn things around. It is a little surprising, though, that some NFL franchise didn't use a late-round pick to grab Samardzija in this year's draft, just to get his rights for even a year.


Please be careful with thread titles. Thanks
