Edwin Jackson looked good for someone nobody wanted
I am hard pressed to think of a single writer who thought that Edwin Jackson was actually coveted by the White Sox. Everyone seemed to think he was going to be dealt to Washington and somehow the White Sox were TRULY lusting after Adam Duun.
I am equally unable to find many people who thought it was a good deal.
But 7 strong innings from Jackson today sunk the Tigers below .500 in August and putting them 8 games out.
More or less the Tigers are done.
And if Edwin continues to pitch well, the White Sox might have a stacked rotation going into October.
May EVERY bad trade work out like this!
