The Cubs Picked WHO?!?
In another sign that the Cubs secretly want to be the Sox, they pick Jeff Samardzija (yes, that Jeff Samardzija) in the fifth round of today's draft. Those of you with good memories will note that this is the second time in four years the Cubs have plucked a lifelong White Sox fan from the ND pitching staff (Grant Johnson, product of LT, being the other).
Sox use the 29th pick in the first round to snap up Andrew McCullough, who didn't finish his senior year very strong as Texas was eliminated on the first weekend of the College World Series (much like the Irish), but did go 12-4 in 2005 when the Longhorns won it all.
