EDWIN JACKSON RUMORS

Edwin Jackson Era is (Thankfully) Over

The Edwin Jackson era is over for the Chicago Cubs, to the delight of the fans. Theo Epstein’s biggest Cubs flop was designated for assignment on July 19th. This allowed the activation of RHP Rafael Soriano, who was signed by the Cubs organization earlier this year. Jackson’s Cubs career was nothing short of a disaster. He was signed to a 4-year, $52-million deal in 2013 after...

Google Maps led to Edwin Jackson arriving late to stadium

By Gordon Dixon Edwin Jackson was scheduled to start the Cubs’ game Tuesday afternoon against the A’s. Unfortunately, Jackson did not arrive to the stadium on time due to difficulty getting directions to Oakland’s spring training complex. The A’s now play their spring training games at Hohokam Park in Mesa, Ariz. That’s where Jackson thought he would end up. Instead,...

Chicago Cubs: what to do with Edwin Jackson

In their powder white and blue pinstripe pristine baseball best, the Chicago Cubs mercifully retake the field after what felt like the longest off-season in the team’s history. Truly, this was a sight for the sorest of eyes for every winter weary die-hard fan eager to toss aside their rose-colored glasses. In previous years, those same fans would not dare fancy such a thought...

Edwin Jackson Provides Backhanded Compliment to Cubs

Pitchers and catchers reported to spring training yesterday for the Chicago Cubs and after one day Edwin Jackson gave his feelings on the Joe Maddon hiring during the offseason. Edwin Jackson, who played for Maddon in TBay, on his 3rd manager in 3 seasons in Chicago: “It’s definitely cool having a good manager.” — Gordon Wittenmyer (@GDubCub) February 20, 2015 Jackson...

Will the Cubs divest themselves of Edwin Jackson?

One thing the Cubs have a perponderance of is #5-#6-#7-type starters. From Dallas Beeler to Eric Jokisch to Chris Rusin to Travis Wood to Felix Doubront to Justin Turner to Dan Straily the really deep cuts (Yoanner Negrin or Carlos Pimentel, anyone? Dae-Eun Rhee?), the Cubs have plenty of options to plug into the back end of their rotation (of which 2 spots are more-or-less reserved...

Chicago Cubs Refused to Trade Edwin Jackson

It was recently revealed by USA Today that the Chicago Cubs turned down a deal with the Atlanta Braves that would essentially trade Edwin Jackson for Braves OF B.J. Upton. Fans would do almost anything to ship Jackson out of town, but taking on Upton’s contract and strikeouts made it an irrational move for Cubs brass. Not only does Upton have more career strikeouts than hits,...

In the Defense of Edwin Jackson

When Edwin Jackson was signed in 2012, it was thought he’d be used as trade bait.  His journeyman career gave him ample experience around the league, and his willingness to follow the money made him a valuable asset. When Jackson signed a four-year, $52 million deal, few around the league batted an eye.  At this time, the Cubs were in the business of signing players to team...

Chicago Cubs trade rumors: Edwin Jackson edition

Prior to the 2013 season the Chicago Cubs signed Edwin Jackson to a four-year, $52 million deal which seemed pretty reasonable for a guy that has thrown a no-hitter before and consistently takes the ball every fifth day. However, since making his debut for the Cubs, things have not gone according to plan. Up to this point Jackson has a record of 13-28 with a 5.23 ERA since putting...

What Can Realistically Be Done With Jackson

As we have been talking about the past day and a half now, Edwin Jackson is a massive headache for the fans of the Chicago Cubs. Putting things kindly, Jackson has been pretty bad for any number of reasons for the past year and a half. Every time Jackson takes the mound and has less than a quality start, fans get heated and do what all fans do; they throw out requests and demands...

Jackson hopes to rebound in 2nd season with Cubs

Edwin Jackson's first season with the Chicago Cubs was a dud. Now, they just hope Jackson can live up to his career norms - if not every dollar of his $52 million, four-year contract. The 30-year-old right-hander went 8-18 last year, the most losses in the majors, with a 4.98 ERA while carrying a modest load of 175 innings. His career averages are 11-13 and a 4.47 ERA. Jackson...
