    You'll probably get to see him a lot more once the season starts and he's in Iowa.

    I agree with the sox fan here, i think coming to Iowa and developing him here first, then bring him to Wrigley about 1/3 into the season would be the best thing for the Cubs, and Samardizja

    Yes, Marshall would more than likely get the 5th starters spot, if for no other reason than he has the experience. The Shark only has 2 pitches - he throws both of them well, but it wouldn't take very long for the rest of the NL to figure him out.

    If that is who we are throwing out there in the 7th and 8th then the drought will continue

    There is no way Samardzija spends time in Iowa unless it's rehab. He's too good and has had too much experience to be sent down at this point. I want the best staff up here period.

    The Cubs are like the Cyclone Baseball Replacement Team - lots of diehard fans.
