All the baseball writers were apparently scooped by the ESPN coverage of today's Indiana-ND game.
Had 2 rewind DVR 2 make sure heard it right, but ESPN's Indiana-ND hoops broadcast said Jeff Samardzija has resigned w/ #Cubs for $55 mil.

No word on years, but $55 was around the number that we were kicking around as a good offer here, so at first glance that sounds good.
More as this develops. I guess he was attending the ND game and talked to someone?

I guess this is a false alarm. Who would have guessed that not everything you read on the internets is true? Still, glad to hear that the Cubs seem to have the right price.
