Best pitcher in Chicago.

Samardzija would be the No. 4 starter on the miserable, woeful 2013 White Sox.
Excellent post. Samardzija is yet another example of the Cubs hype machine. There were actually nonsense articles written during the crosstown series that said he was better than Sale. Rizzo is another one that went through the media coronation as a future HOF slugger when in reality, they will be lucky if he becomes the next Adam Laroche. It seems MLB scouts have caught up to him and that average has been falling like a rock. Rizzo also has one of the worst batting averages with RISP among MLB players with enough qualifying ABs.
