  • Readers Q&A: Mark Gonzales' Cubs mailbag

  • All eyes on Cubs' Samardzija

    MIAMI -- Before a major league scout left the press dining room Monday night at Marlins Park, he looked at two tables occupied by representatives from other clubs. "I think I'm the only guy here not to watch (Jeff) Samardzija," the scout joked. The...
