What do you think about the Samardzija, Hammel trade?

Many were taken by surprise last night when news of a Cubbie trade interrupted our Forth of July celebrations. Isn’t Theo and Billy watching fireworks with the rest of us? Apparently not! I took an informal poll to get the fan reaction. The question was, “What do you think about the Samardzija, Hammel trade?” It got a great response and interestingly it strong opinions from both sides.


One poster declared, “Typical Cubs move, that’s why they will never get to the World Series.”

Another said, “Fantastic deal for the future. Sad to see Jeff go but it’s for the best.

What do you think? Post a comment!
