White Sox Acquire Edwin Jackson

Christ, he doesn't have to be the next big thing. Just a mid 4 ERA/FIP starter that will make a total of $1.5M over the next 3 years combined, there's incredible value in that.

 

Yeah....the more I let it sit and stew, the more that I'm kinda puzzled by the trade afterall....salary reasons alone, this makes very little sense for a glorified 4th/5th starter. And lets be honest, thats all Jackson is, at best.

 

In 2011, we'd have:

 

Peavy $16m

Buehrle $14m

Floyd $5m

Danks ~$5m

Jackson $8.5m

 

Thats...well thats pretty f***ing stupid to wrap that much up in a back of the rotation guy.

 

So I guess yeah, we do need to hope we're flipping Jackson for a bat, and can still find a serviceable 5th starter....

Actually no, I'm pretty sure it was posted here that his insurance doesn't kick in unless he is out starting next season.

 

You've answered your own question.

Insurance is paying Peavy's remaining salary this season.

 

We have money to spend.

 

Where did you hear this? I must have missed it.

What are you talking about? The Sox get NO MONEY THIS SEASON. If he fails to start next year, then the START paying.

Just got an email from WhiteSox.com announcing trade. They don't do that for people they intend to flip, right?

To answer whoever was asking earlier, Cowley said the 'world shocker' doesn't mean Jackson to Sox is off.

 

My understanding is Dunn will be acquired using Jackson + throw in, while Kenny is working on a SP that could be had for Flowers/Morel/prospect/prospect.

Even the official release on the main website says Jackson could be flipped for Dunn.

Has anyone ever thought that MAYBE JUST MAYBE the White Sox are getting some money back for Peavy already this season, they just don't want anyone to know about it?

 

It would be to their advantage to keep that kind of thing quiet.

 

Why would JR hold back in signing Damon just to turn around and spend quite a bit on 2 months of Jackson if they weren't in a decent financial position? And you'd have to think SOME money would be coming back from the DBacks if we're giving them 2 prospects.

It's no coincidence that Jackson was in a three way proposal involving Washington and the Sox earlier.

 

Do you think its possible that KW really wanted Dunn and the Nationals wouldn't budge so he acquired their main target out of spite?

I think he got Jackson because Washington wanted Jackson and not Hudson.

The Sox are not getting money back for Peavy's insurance or from last year's trade!!

 

Why would they tell anyone if they were? How would it be to their advantage competitively?

But I believe the Score reported the Dbacks said there is definitely NOT a trade involving Jackson for Dunn???

I don't see Kenny flipping Jackson for another bat. That'd create a massive hole in the #5 spot and the Sox would still be relying on a junkball-throwing reclamation project as their #4. I appreciate what Freddy's done for us this year, but I'm not banking on him to continue putting up the numbers that he has.

Actually, the Nats said that.

Here is what I don't get. If this were really the case... why take the risk of swinging independent trades? Why not do a three party deal all at once?
