Feldman, bats no match for Samardzija as A’s take series finale in a rout

Box score OAKLAND — Jeff Samardzija blew a 96-mph fastball by Robbie Grossman on his 101st and final pitch, ending the eighth inning with a strikeout. The at-bat was an overmatch, just like nearly every meeting between these two clubs. For a second straight day, the A’s handed it to the Astros, 13-1 on Thursday […]

Jeff Samardzija would love to have Darwin Barney join him on A’s

OAKLAND, Calif. — If Jeff Samardzija has his way, Darwin Barney will have his back again in the middle of the infield the next time Samardzija pitches. And if Samardzija’s boss, Billy Beane, is asking, the Oakland Athletics’ new ace will tell him. “I would put in a word for Barney anywhere on that,” the former Cubs pitcher said of the Gold Glove second baseman who was designated for assignment on Tuesday. “He’s an amazing talent. And I know you stick...

Could A's go back to Cubs for potential Tommy Milone trade?

Could the A's turn back to a recent trade partner now that Tommy Milone has asked out of Oakland? They probably should. In a move that wasn't exactly surprising, Oakland Athletics pitcher Tommy Milone has asked that the club trade him. The request comes in light of his demotion to Triple-A, which can be attributed to the super trade that brought the A's Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to add to the top of their starting rotation. The deal left them with a surplus of pitching, rather than a concern over the depth that was present in the early going thanks to the injuries to Jarrod Parker...

A’s: Samardzija revels in late outpouring of support

For most of Friday night, you could forgive Jeff Samardzija if he’d started to wonder where this vaunted A’s offense he’d heard about had gone to. With the Cubs, for whom he made his first 17 starts, Samardzija knew he… Continue Reading →

Orioles getting first look at Samardzija - School of Roch

All-Star Jeff Samardzija ready to focus on helping Oakland A's

Caught between NL and AL, Jeff Samardzija just watches

MINNEAPOLIS — Jeff Samardzija still has a lot of Cub in him, so waiting till next year shouldn’t be an issue. The odd (Cubby?) occurrence of pitching like an All-Star for the Cubs despite winning only two games, only to be traded to the Oakland Athletics of the American League, prevented him from pitching in the All-Star Game. He participated and dressed like everyone else, much like an injured All-Star would. His news conference time Monday was spent on the...

All-Star pitcher Jeff Samardzija thought he might be a New England Patriot

MINNEAPOLIS — It’s worked out pretty well for Oakland A’s pitcher Jeff Samardzija. The All-Star righty — who was just recently traded from his first professional team, the Cubs — has carved a nice seven-year big league career to date, currently totaling a 2.78 ERA in 19 starts this season. But, as he recalled, the [...]
