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.

Cubs Edwin Jackson could thrive in bullpen

Genius physicist Albert Einstein defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”  The Cubs intransigence in keeping RHP Edwin Jackson in the starting rotation is bordering on insanity. Since he signed a four-year, $52 million contract prior to last season, Jackson, 30, has arguably been the worst starting pitcher in major league...

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...
