One of the reasons I like Jeff Samardzija and this whole new Cubs regime is... they generally don't beat around the bush.
Call it "transparency".
I mean, sure - what else is Samardzija gonna say?
It wasn't the ump or anything.
Still, getting up in front of all those reporters and saying what's in the gif is the right way to do this stuff.
Now, lets hope he figures out what's gone wacky in his delivery or whatever and get back to that guy who shut down the Cardinals for 8 innings back in June.
