Congrats to Jeff Samardzija on his big promotion to the Cubs. Sounds like there is a very real chance that he is going to get the start tomorrow against the Marlins. With all of WEISND gathering in Chicago this weekend, perhaps a trip to Wrigleyville to cheer on #83 is in order?? I have to think there will be all kinds of Irish fans piling into Wrigley Field to watch Samardzija's debut.
Should be interesting to see how he performs. Shark doesn't strike me as the type of guy who would have any troubling dealing with the pressure of a pennant race, so I would imagine that he will do well in his debut. Even if he ends up getting sent back down when Kerry Wood is healthy, it's a great sign that he is already performing well enough to get the big league call up.
