CHICAGO -- Jeff Samardzija can see the big picture coming into focus for the Chicago Cubs.

They're about to begin their second season with Theo Epstein leading the front office, and the right-hander believes the pieces are starting to fall into place.

He says he "absolutely" likes what he's seeing from management, and he wasn't referring to the one-year contract he agreed to on Friday.

Samardzija sees a team coming off a 101-loss season that just might surprise a few people.
