   It seems the Chicago Cubs have added a front of the rotation starter to their rotation. According to Ken Rosenthal, the Cubs have agreed to a four year contract with free agent RHP Edwin Jackson. It seems we have been through this before. Exactly a week ago, the Cubs were in agreement with RHP Anibal Sanchez on a 5 year, $75 million deal, only to have the Detroit Tigers to take him with an extra million a season. Earlier in the offseason, the Cubs agreed to a trade with the Los Angeles Angels for RHP Dan Haren, trading closer Carlos Marmol. Of course, that deal fell through when the Cubs had concern over Haren’s health. Jackson’s deal will become official after he passes his physical, or after the Cubs are 100% sure no other team will make a last minute offer. I would say this signing is a sure thing, but I’ve been duped twice already. I refuse to acknowledge this as fact until the deal is made official.
