Edwin Jackson had a losing record last year on a team that won 90+ games and the NL East.
In both Chicago and Washington I tried hard, very hard, to like Edwin Jackson. I am probably in the 95th percentile in terms of how hard I've tried to like Edwin Jackson. But the consistency just really isn't there: I've given up on it recently.
