Jeff Samardzija and the Cubs are picking up where they left off last season.
Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman Neil Walker understands not everybody is going to be a fan of Major League Baseball's expanded replay system, which threatens to slow down a sport that already struggles to be played with any sort of urgency.
Major League Baseball's use of expanded replay drew a workout in Monday's opener between the Chicago Cubs and the Pittsburgh Pirates, with one call being upheld and another overturned.
Robinson Cano had two more hits and Erasmo Ramirez pitched four-hit ball for six innings, enhancing his chances of earning a spot in the Mariners' rotation and helping Seattle beat the Chicago Cubs 3-0.
James Shields is already in opening day form.
Matt Cain pitched five perfect innings for the San Francisco Giants on Monday, but the Chicago Cubs rallied for a 3-2 victory.
Jeff Samardzija struggled with his command at times in a three-inning outing Wednesday in a Colorado Rockies split-squad's 7-5 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday.
Jeff Samardzija pitched two shutout innings before an overflow crowd in the Chicago Cubs' opener at their new stadium, a 5-2 loss to an Arizona Diamondbacks split-squad on Thursday.
The Chicago Cubs and starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija have agreed to a one-year, $5,345,000 contract, avoiding arbitration.

Jeff Samardzija will be the opening-day starter for the Chicago Cubs, who said Matt Garza will start the season on the disabled list because of an injured muscle in his side that is preventing the right-hander from throwing.
Jeff Samardzija dominated into the ninth inning, outpitching Jordan Zimmermann, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Washington Nationals 4-3 Sunday for their first win of the Theo Epstein era.
A few hours before his team's third game, Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson was asked, somewhat jokingly, if his team would ever consider getting an early lead.
"You keep pitching and giving your team a chance to win," Samardzija said. "Everyone is trying to do their jobs and sometimes balls find holes, and sometimes they don't."
"Obviously if we can get Utley out or if he can throw me a bone and get himself out, that'd be great," Samardzija said. "He's a heck of a player. Situations like that against good teams, you need to be aware of which guys are hot and who their go to guys are and he's definitely that for that team. We'll remember that for next time."
