Samardzija’s Contract and Destination Conjecture

Where will Samardzija go?  He is a work horse and still highly regarded.  Alas his team needed innings and so at the end of the year, Jeff ended up leading the league in earned runs.  Pitching is in such high demand that teams are willing to overlook that last year and go more with potential.  As it stands right now, his market price is between $15 and $17 Million.  If he gets his desired five year deal, he would sling until 35.  Look for Boston, Miami, and Seattle the front runners to pay him on potential instead of last year’s results.  Good fortune as we look at other issues here at APEX Baseball Betting.

Puig Too Muscular

Bigger is almost always better in the American sporting world.  Roids, PED’s, and other magic provided the hustle behind that muscle.  Alas the Dodgers rely on Puig for other reasons.  They want him to fly around the bases and roam the outfield with abandon.  This did not happen last year as he played less than eighty games and most he missed were because of hamstring issues.  A more svelte Yassiel would do the Dodgers better.

Too Many Lefties

Not too many teams can lament that they have too many left handed pitchers but this is the case with the Chicago White Sox.  Sale and Rondon give them that side in spades.  SO to get the right hander they covet, Jose Santiago is rumored to be on the block.  With his prowess not only could they get  #2 starter but prospects to boot.  It is in Chicago’s court to see what they do now.
