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,...

Report: Cubs rejected Edwin Jackson for B.J. Upton trade proposal

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Cubs rejected a trade offer that would have sent right-hander Edwin Jackson to the Braves for outfielder B.J. Upton. They were teammates while with the Rays a few years ago. The two sides discussed the deal before the trade deadline in July. A Jackson-for-Upton swap would be the epitome of a bad contract-for-bad contract deal. Jackson...

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...

Cubs Rumors: Chicago trying to trade Edwin Jackson

A change of scenery may be the thing that Edwin Jackson needs the most. The Chicago Cubs signed him to a four-year, $52 million back in 2013, but he hasn't lived up to the contract at all. In only two years with the team, he has gone 13-28 with a 5.22 ERA and a 235/108 strikeout-to-walk ratio.Jackson's struggles have made the Cubs try to trade him, according to Jon Heyman...

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...

Chicago Cubs & the benefits of signing Edwin Jackson

Assuming that the deal actually goes through as planned, which is easier said than done on the North Side these days, the Chicago Cubs will have made their most noteworthy signing of the offseason, in bringing in starter Edwin Jackson.  Jackson, who has become the very definition of a journeyman over the last several years, finally gets a home for more than a few months in agreeing...

MLB free agent pitcher updates: Edwin Jackson edition

Can we all just get off of Edwin Jackson’s back already? The free agent pitcher, who most recently worked at the back end of the Washington Nationals’ rotation in 2012 is likely to sign with his 8th different team this offseason since breaking in with the Dodgers back in 2003. Since when does a guy who can put up 30+ starts (he’s done that each of his past 6 seasons), 180+...
