    Extend Samardzija

    Rumors out of the GM meetings are rumors of the Cubs discussing extension with Samardzija.

    He turns 28 soon and you have Rizzo 24 next season and Castro 23.

    Should this be the core to build around ?

    I'd like to see another solid season from Shark first.

    Love this if it's true. Don't remember where I read this, but Samardzija has only thrown around 800 innings since he started out in Low-A in 2006. So he may be almost 28, but his arm is definitely more fresh than that.

    Absolutely he should be part of the core.

    Assuming his first starting was not a fluke, anywhere between a 4-7 year extension should be given to him.

    And I don't believe it was a fluke. So yes, he should be part of the core.

    Something like Derek Holland's 5-year/$28 million deal that bought out his arbitration years, maybe?

    I'd extend Shark and Barney. Barney should be part of this group if he takes a nice 3 million a year deal for 7 years.

    I wouldn't mind this if the extension is that cheap.

    I'm leery, but the size, athleticism, and the velocity leave me a highly optimistic boy in the case of Samardzija.

    I think it'd be between Holland's 5/28 and Bumgarner's 5/35.

    I'd take him at ~5 a year. Even if he can't start, that's not even that ridiculous for a good pen arm.
