Jeff Samardzija, meet Drew Henson

Friday was quite the slow news day in baseball, so it’s a good thing that the Cubs handed Jeff Samardzija . Also included in Mr. S’s deal is a full no-trade clause and team options 2012 and 2013.

This sounds vaguely familiar. There was an incident like this, I believe, in 2001. What was the guy’s name? Drew Henson or somethin’. What ever happened to him? I mean, he did well for himself in baseball, right?

Of course, this isn’t to say that Samardzija will meet the same fate. However, his numbers in college aren’t entirely impressive. Players develop at different times, and a full dedication to baseball may benefit Samardzija. So, as you can see from the back and forth in just this paragraph, it’s one big gamble. And the Cubs have $12.5 million on black.
