Padres are out on Edwin Jackson after refusing to go to 4 years....destination down to Cubs and Rangers— JIM BOWDEN (@JimBowdenESPNxm) December 19, 2012
Edwin Jackson wanted a 4-year deal? I guess I don't blame him. It's no fun getting moved around a ton, but at the same time, you kinda have to earn that sort of thing don't you? What were we going to do with all these pitching prospects and Edwin Jackson?
It's like the guy who was only interested in one night stands suddenly wanted to get married real fast. Like his biological clock was ticking. I guess I'm thankful we didn't get saddled with that. Here's to the Padres using that money wisely in another direction.
Trade more likely. Byrnes unwilling to go 4 years on anyone. @jimbowdenespnxm Padres out on Edwin Jackson after refusing to go to 4 years.— Corey Brock (@FollowThePadres) December 19, 2012
Controllable is better when your strategy is to move pieces around and develop until the window opens. When's the window opening again?
