Cubbies Crib: Morning Marquee 11/28


The Chicago Cubs are shopping right-handed starter Jeff Samardzija and as many as eight teams have shown considerable interest, who is not eligible for free agency until after the 2015 season. The front office has had discussions with Samardzija’s camp regarding a long-term contract extension, but the two sides are far apart financially. A source told CSN Chicago’s David Kaplan, that there is a 99 percent chance he is moved before the 2014 season.
