It sounds like Jeff Samardzija will stay put in Chicago through Thanksgiving.
There was some smoke that something could get done today between the Jays and Cubs. That isn't yet the case. There may be an offer in from the Jays but, nothing is imminent.
There is a good chance however, Samardzija will still be gone prior to the winter meetings.
There are up to eight teams involved in talks with the Cubs. Toronto still seems to be the most aggressive and considered the favorites, I'm told from multiple sources.
Look for something to get done in the next 10 days.
