Martino: Yanks haven’t discussed Kennedy, no interest in Colon or Jackson

Via Andy Martino: The Yankees have not discussed Ian Kennedy with the Padres and they do not have interest in either Bartolo Colon or Edwin Jackson. That last part makes a lot of sense. San Diego has indicated they are willing to keep Kennedy for next year, but that seems like a negotiating ploy more […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogMartino: Yanks haven’t discussed Kennedy, no interest in Colon or Jackson The post Martino: Yanks haven’t discussed Kennedy, no interest in Colon or Jackson appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Jackson shows signs of life, if briefly

PHOENIX — Through the first four innings of Friday's game at Arizona, it appeared Edwin Jackson might have found at least a little bit of that old magic. To that point, the Chicago Cubs right-hander had faced just one batter over the minimum, threw with good control around the plate, wasn't walking batters and had a good fastball working. He also kept the ball down, and Arizona didn't hit any fly balls during that stretch. Then came the fifth inning, when the Diamondbacks' Nos.

Jackson: 'It was embarrassing'

CHICAGO -- Not even the excitement of newcomer Arismendy Alcantara could distract Chicago Cubs fans from pitcher Edwin Jackson’s performance on Saturday. The $52 million hurler summed it up better than anyone in the Cubs' 11-6 loss to the Atlanta Braves. "It was an embarrassing, horrendous game," Jackson said. "Flat out. No other way to put it." Jackson couldn’t get out of the fourth inning as he gave up nine runs, including three home runs on seven hits and four walks.

Edwin Jackson's struggles look familiar

CHICAGO -- After a season and a half of Chicago Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson trying to capture some of his past success, it simply might be time to admit he is what he is: a starter that can’t do much better than allow four to five runs per game. He can “grind” through outings and battle all he wants, but on most nights several runs are going to be scored and he’s not going to outpitch his counterpart. Wednesday was yet another one of those night: Jackson went 5 1/3 innings while giving up four runs on six hits and four walks in a 4-1 loss to the Cincinnati Reds.
