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.

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...
