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...

With Tanaka’s...

Cubs' hitters fail in clutch in loss to Reds

The Cubs have learned to brace themselves for Edwin Jackson's mercurial ways. Monday night's 9-3 loss to the Reds was no different as Jackson struggled early, settled into a comfortable pattern before failing to get a key out.
