Mr. Jackson, You Make Me Nervous.

Edwin Jackson is clearly frustrated.

I know you were the Cubs big off season acquisition. I know many consider you an amazing pitcher and believe me, I’m not arguing that at all; Edwin Jackson-you make me nervous.

The Chicago Cubs beat the Miami Marlins 4-3 last night. It was a tough win as many of Chicago’s games have been this year. Close games that could have gone either way.

In the second inning, Edwin Jackson had the bases loaded with one out. That’s not cool, Edwin. If it were the top of the sixth I would understand. Your arms getting tired, “Take me out coach, I’ve got nothing left.” but come on, the second?

“It was just a matter of trying to battle back,” said Jackson, who signed a four-year contract with Chicago in the offseason. “When your team goes down and scores first and then you give up a run, as a starter, you just have to go battle.

“We did that tonight. I battled. The team battled, and that was a great win for us.”

Yeah you came back and you struck out four through six innings. That’s cool.

Here’s what I’m suggesting: Dale Sveum should sit you for a game. I’m not one to judge a manager’s decision, but he should sit you in favour of someone else. Maybe until I stop swearing at the television. It’s not nice to swear.

Now, let’s talk about Luis Valbuena. He’s come into third base in favour of the injured Ian Stewart. What are you going to do,Dale? Four HR’s in eighteen games.

What are you going to do?

Now will people believe me when I say that the Cubs can get a shot at the wild card?
