Cubs sign Samardzija to five-year, $10 million deal: http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2736354

"Baseball is my first love. I played it my whole life," Samardzija said.

This is as big as Soriano's signing. Samardzija will begin in High-A ball in Florida and expect him to move up quickly to AA joining Veal by the end of the year in West Tenn.

Cubs now have three arms of significant quality approaching the bigs (Samardzija late '08 or spring/summer of '09 joining Veal and Gallagher (BTW Samardzija was added to the 40-man so that accelerates things even more.)
