EDWIN JACKSON NEWS

Rockies 5, Cubs 1 (4/10/15)

OSS: Cubs can’t buy a hit with RISP Three up: 1. Matt Sczcur tied the game with a bases-loaded sac fly in the third. 2. Edwin Jackson looked good coming out of the pen, hitting 94-95 with his fastball. 3. Rizzo got on base four times in four PAs, with two HBP and two singles, one of them a bunt against the shift. That’s a rare Berselius-approved bunt. Three down: 1. Pretty much...

Pre-Game Roster Check

It seems that my guesses for the roster over the weeks were pretty close to what’s actually happening now that more guys have been optioned, and the rotation has been announced: Lester Arrieta Hammel Wood Hendricks. In that order. EJax the long man — Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) April 4, 2015 There is the bench battle still to be fought, though: No word on final roster spots...

Joe Maddon hires DJ for Cubs' practice, players dance up a storm

You never know what you're going to get from Cubs manager Joe Maddon. As he showed with Tampa, he'll try anything to keep his team loose. The team's themed road trips were the perfect example of this. The unique skipper tried something new for Chicago on Monday by having a DJ on the practice field. This seemed to go over really well with pitcher Edwin Jackson, who showed off some...

Oh, Alvin Yellon. Oh, Oh, Alvin.

When Alvin titles an article Athletics 14, Cubs 2: Oh, Edwin Jackson. Oh, Oh, Edwin.   You just know that the article is going to be condescending. When Alvin writes any article, you know that the article is going to be poorly written. Here we go. Then, word came that he had been “caught in traffic.” Uh… okay, I guess, even though Sloan Park and HoHoKam Stadium are the...

Tough Jam: Cubs pitcher winds up at wrong park, misses start

Some pitchers have trouble finding the plate. Edwin Jackson of the Chicago Cubs had a much bigger problem: He couldn't find the ballpark. Jackson missed his spring training start Tuesday against the A's when he drove to the wrong stadium. Fitting, too - he once walked eight batters in a no-hitter, and has never been known for great location. Jackson took the blame for this errant...

Cubs Left With Nothing but Bad Options for E-Jax

Problems with finding a stadium that he spent his first spring with the Cubs working at aside, Edwin Jackson‘s time with the Cubs has been a colossal disappointment.  After signing a 4 year, $52M deal, Jackson was supposed to be a player who improved with the stability of a long-term contract.  Instead, the consolation prize to missing on Anibal Sanchez hasn’t offered much...

Another Reason to Dislike Edwin Jackson

He’s overpaid, he’s been a bad pitcher and despite being with the Chicago Cubs in Arizona for three spring trainings, Edwin Jackson doesn’t know when there’s traffic before getting to the ballpark. The Cubs played against the Oakland A’s on Tuesday, a 1 p.m. local start in Mesa, Arizona. Edwin Jackson was scheduled to start, but he didn’t show up on time. Only in Spring...

The Cubs #5 starter battle dissected

When the Cubs opened camp this Spring Training, one of the only real battles for a roster space figuring to take place was at the back-end of the rotation. 1 through 3 was definitely set (Lester, Arrieta, Hammel), and the 4th starter was almost certainly going to be Kyle Hendricks (though Muskat and others whispered that even he might break camp with Iowa instead of Chicago). The...

Bouncing Back in 2015 – NL Central

The Chicago Cubs are in the middle of what might be the greatest movement of young talent in the history of baseball. I guess that will play itself out; however, that does make finding people to look to bounce back on the offensive side of things difficult. Thank God for the Cubs pitching staff however, because they have two guys that can’t get much worse than they were last year...

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.

Hello Rangers? You Want Edwin Jackson?

Theo Epstein’s $50 Million Dollar Mistake Could Haunt Chicago

The biggest misstep of the Theo Epstein era in Chicago was giving pitcher Edwin Jackson a four-year, $52 million contract. The signing came after the failed pursuit that sent starter Anibal Sanchez back to Detroit. At the time of the signing, Jackson was a relatively young free agent at just 28-years-old and coming off two of his best seasons as a pro with the Washington Nationals...
