    Source confirms Jeff Samardzija rejected a five-year offer from Cubs. Value was slightly more than $85 million, source said.

    85 million in guaranteed money sounds great to me

    Not worth it.. BUT

    if continues this hot year he's having and does it on a contending team (if traded) he will get paid more.

    He's probably pitching himself above the 5/$85m mark right now.

    I'd go 5/$100m.

    The only way our FO is gonna get the type of surplus value they seek is with reclamation projects and pre-arb deals. I understand their approach, but these just come off as half-hearted offers and lip service to say they exhausted the extent they were willing to go. They knew he wasn't gonna take that offer.

    Not surprising. He's worth more and will get more.

    And then. He made them pancakes.

    This is the type of thing that comes out before a guy gets traded. It's the old "look we tried."

    That being said, I think they should trade him if they can get good value.

    Doesn't look like he wants to stay here at all, and I can't say that I blame him

    Not surprising. I am glad this came out. At least now people will realize why the Cubs have to trade him. When you factor in next year he would be getting $10M then he is turning down a 4 year deal at $75M. I am pretty sure if he was receptive to the numbers but wanted a little more the Cubs could have gone to $90M. This is not about $5M over 5 years. This is about Shark wanted $23 to $26M a year. He is a *******, and it is about time people saw that. And that is why he will be traded. I honestly hope betting on himself cost him millions. And I do not understand those who do not blame him for wanting to leave. The Cubs took a chance on him years ago and gave him a great contract. They brought him along slowly and have never done him wrong. So why not sign with the Cubs for an extension? You can say he wants to win. But IMO he should be able to see that will come. And it will come sooner rather than later if he did sign. I believe it can come as soon as 2015. But I guess the Cubs did him wrong somewhere.
