Jeff Samardzija has been named the opening day starter.
As it should be. Samardzija has K-per-inning stuff and can dominate any lineup in baseball. He's a strong option as a 3/4 starting pitcher in mixed leagues. Now we are left to wait to see if he's able to work out an extension with the Cubs or if they will ship him out of town. ANALYST: Ray Flowers
Cardinals have signed DT Red Bryant.
This is already the third team Bryant has been with this season as the 31-year old defensive lineman is nothing more than added depth and always the roster casualty when the team needs roster room. At least he gets to spend his Thanksgiving knowing that he is still employed. Analysis: Howard Bender
