given Jeff Samardzija's inconsistency why haven't teams tried him as a 8th inning guy or closer?
he's had one winning season as a starter and with nearly a 3-1 k-bb ration that screams bullpen and his best season record wise was in the pen for the cubs when he went 8-4
i think teams making him a starter or his insistence on that role have denied him potential success in the pen

I think the problem is that there are much more quality relievers than starting pitchers in the league, so there's not really any need for him to go to the bullpen right now.
