Man, Jeff Samardzija made the right choice

 War watching Mr. Irish getting blazed for 7 runs in 2 innings...  For an 0-3 record with an ERA the Rays wouldnt even take...... But he made the right choice not taking millions and going in the NFL's first round... But he is playing Single A ball in daytona.....

Thank God you can judge talent after just 9 games. 

Why the hell do MLB teams take years to develop these guys with people like you around.

before he signed with the cubs, he was ranked as the number 2-3 receiver.....which would put him 1st or early 2nd round.....

Only an ex-Irish football player could spark enough interest that there are 7 posts in a thread about a Single A pitcher in the Rays' organization  :lol

baseball is a better career move anyways. longer career's (if u make it), not as much wear and tear on the body, and now he wont have to cover up that pretty boy face of his. i still h8 him and his alma mater.

BTW- He signed a 5 year, $10 mil contract to play baseball with an option for years 6 and 7 that bring the contract to 16.5 million.  The deal also included a $2.5 mil signing bonus.

Not too bad for a guy who loves to play baseball more than he loves to play football.

You're wrong, it was a stupid decision.  Shut up.

Opting to pass up a chance at the NFL, Samardzija on Friday signed a five-year contract with the Chicago Cubs.

ESPN 1000 in Chicago is reporting Samardzija's deal to be worth $10 million, including a $2.5 million signing bonus. According to the report, the Cubs have options for a sixth and seventh year.

Just another point is that prior to that game he had 3.83 ERA so you are really judging him based off of one bad game.  He just has not thrown enough innings for anyone to really say what kind of player he will be.  Until we know that you can't determine if he made a mistake.
