Edwin Jackson is a good pitcher, but incredibly inconsistent. Edwin Jackson's agent Scott Boras tried to convince the world that Edwin Jackson wasn't Edwin Jackson. Instead, Boras over shot, and went to the press suggesting his client should receive a 5 year deal worth $60 million dollars...read HERE. That's wasn't only stupid, it was freaking hilarious. Not only does Jackson not deserve that type of contract, he can't live up to it... no offense.
We here at Bleeding Yankee Blue are only telling you this because it's being reported by the Baltimore Sun, read HERE, that Jackson now will probably accept a 1 year deal. Then at the end of 2012, he will test the free agent market in search of a multi-year deal. Suddenly Boras realized that his client's the only one left holding the check. Good work Scott.
Look, Jackson should "test" the market at the end of 2012 if he see fit, but that's one year more on yet, another ball club (don't forget, this guys bounced around from team to team) and he not only needs to do well, he needs to do incredibly well in 2012. Why? Because his agent propped him up into something he's not. We predicted it, Boras blew it. Read WHY BORAS WILL MESS THINGS UP FOR EDWIN JACKSON. Look, if Jackson can get more than a 1 year deal and a few extra bucks at this point, good for him, but next time they really need to think this one through.
Message to Mr. Jackson...fire your agent, he's delusional.
