11/6 Cubs and Samardzija
There were reports that the Diamondbacks were talking to the Cubs about pitcher Jeff Samardzija. The right-hander says he doesn’t pay attention to the talk. Samardzija also is not in a hurry to sign a contract extension with the Cubs. The right-hander told CSNChicago.com’s David Kaplan that he’ll wait. “I have two more years of arbitration so thre is a lot of time to get something done,” Samardzija said.
