So , for this to be the case , it would mean that all other baseball GM's are such great NFL fans , that they were going to pass on signing him just to make it easier for him to go to the NFL ?

Get a grib , you creppy stalker .

Christ, why can't you understand this!

In 2005, Jeff Samardzija was a 1st team NCAAF All-American, at WR. He was widely considered a 1st round draft choice. It was believe that it would be an extreme longshot, to get Samardzija to focus soley on baseball. For that reason, teams were not willing to use a high draft pick on him. Most were going to wait until the mid to late rounds. But Jim Hendry took a chance, both with a high pick and financially, at making Jeff focus soley on baseball...and he suceeded.

Jim just got done doing the same thing with Matt Szczur, a high profile wr, out of Villanova.

Something tells me you still can't understand any of this!

Jim's biggest blunder was not selling high on Tyler Colvin. Colvin looks absolutely LOST at the plate.

The way Brett Jackson is playing, screw Colvin, trade Byrd/Fukudome and call up Jackson the first week of June.

Jackson's worst year in the minors is FAR better than Colvin's best year....and he's a year ahead of Hack-o-matic Colvin at the last two levels.

I was concerned with Colvin after the bat incident that finished his 2010 season. I thought that it might carry lingering effects mentally into this season.

Damn good idea and the Nationals may just be takers for this.

I really like the idea of the Cubs calling up Brett Jackson. To their credit, the Cubs did a great job in understand when it was time to call up Castro... I hope they do the same with Jackson!

Along with Washington(As Lee stated), Atlanta and Texas, could be fits for Byrd.

I'm not a big Colvin fan... But it's time the Cubs start playing him everyday, to see if he's a viable option for the future. By mid-june, a Soriano/Jackson/Colvin outfield, would make a lot of sense!

Matt Garza: 41 K's to 9 BB's, in just over 30 innings. His recent showings, along with the bad defense behind him and his bad luck with balls put in play, makes his 4.11 ERA look even better. I am realy liking what Garza is showing us!

Jeff Samardzija: Last 8 innings, 0 ER, 4 hits, 5 BB, 11 K's. On the season, Samardzija has a 3.14 ERA. I have never been a huge Samardzija fan, but he seems to be learning how to pitch!

Sorry Banks I can't feel good about this team

We've got to have the slowest and worst defensive OF in the league, and its not just Soriano that's a liability anymore. I went to a couple of the games in Coors and there's a reason Ianetta was able to get a triple.

Garza's been suprising good, I hope i continue to be wrong about him. His increase in K rate in interesting and could be telling of the differences in pitching philosophies between TB and the Cubs; unforunately most people will still look at his ERA and wins/losses.

This is going to be a really tough stretch for the Cubs. It sounds like Jay Jackson may be called up for Sunday if there's a reason to watch that game.

He is mixing in many off speed pitches. It could be Cub influenced. It seems to be working because most teams must be using scouting reports from TB and are guessing fastball and are out front of most pitches. We will see if they catch up to him and then if he adjusts.
