EDWIN JACKSON RUMORS

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...

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 of CBSSports...

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...

Edwin Jackson to the Yankees?

Yesterday news came out that New York Yankees star pitcher Masahiro Tanaka will miss at least six weeks due to an arm injury, if not longer if Tommy John surgery is required. The Chicago Cubs might have dodged a huge bullet when the Yankees outbid them for his services; but could their winning the “Tanaka Sweepstakes” help the Cubs potentially dodge another bullet? With Tanaka’s...

Edwin Jackson: not a $52 Million mistake for the Cubs — Yet

There is no way to sugarcoat Edwin Jackson’s disastrous first season with the Chicago Cubs. Of 80 qualifying starters in major league baseball last year, Jackson had both the 78th highest ERA, 4.98, and WHIP, 1.46.  No pitcher lost more games than his 18, against just eight wins. Jackson’s disastrous season only cost the Cubs $13 million, the first year of a 4-year, $52 million...

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...
