Doggelganger?! Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija looks like this Braves-loving dog

Mike Oz

One of these pictures is Jeff Samardzija, starting pitcher for the Chicago Cubs who strikes out a lot of hitters. The other is a dog whose owner brought it to the Atlanta Braves' Bark at the Park event Sunday.

Which is which? Maybe if they were both throwing fastballs, it would be easier to distinguish. The flowing locks. The slight grin. I'm almost stuck.

Oh, I got it. Samardzija is the one in the Cubs cap. If not for that, I wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

And as it turns out, doggelgangers are actually a thing. I think we're all better people now that we know that.

Baseball is back. Don't miss anything.
