9/16 Jackson, Sveum disagree

Edwin Jackson had an abbreviated outing that got even uglier once he was pulled from the game. Jackson gave up two runs over four innings, made a costly error, and most likely didn’t win his argument with manager Dale Sveum in the dugout. The right-hander was lifted after throwing 76 pitches in his shortest start since a three inning stint on May 23. Jackson gave up two runs on two hits and three walks, committed one of three errors in the game by the Cubs.

After he was replaced by pinch-hitter Brian Bogusevic in the fifth, Jackson was seen in the Cubs dugout having an animated discussion with Sveum. Bench coach Jamie Quirk, pitching coach Chris Bosio and a few players also were present. Jackson then went into the clubhouse.

Jackson and Milwaukee starter Wily Peralta began the day tied for the most losses in the National League with 15 each. Both also have turned in their share of quality starts — Jackson has 13 and Peralta 16. They are two of six NL pitchers to have at least 13 losses and at least 13 quality starts this year, joining the Phillies’ Cole Hamels and Kyle Kendrick, the Padres’ Eric Stults and the Giants’ Tim Lincecum.

Jackson was in line to tie the Astros’ Lucas Harrell for most losses in MLB.

Thats a huge who cares? lol Jackson has been terrible most of the year, he should be frustrated.
then again, you get two outs in an inning, then walk the bases loaded, if I was Sveum, he would have been gone right then.

No, if you were Sveum you would have left him in too long. THAT is Dale Sveum for you.
If it were YOU Jasper, you would have pulled him right then…..but that’s YOU…and I’ll take you over Sveum. I’ll take me over Sveum. I’ll take Quade over…over…over… OK, JUST KIDDING!! HA! One more season to go for Sveum and then Hoystein has to make a tough decision???
Sveum did not sign for more than three years…did he??!!

Wasted money on a bum pitcher. As Dallas Green used to say about bad contracts “Eat the contract” Show Jackson the door, Please.

DelawareBill hits the mark. There’s a reason Jackson has a packed suitcase with every team he’s been with. And that’s been a ton. He’s had his head in a hole all year and now thinks it is time to show some frustration. If Epstein let’s this bum in the Cubs clubhouse again, they both should get on the “EL” and ride downtown and find a good shrink to find out what is wrong with both of them. Of all the players to be indignant, Jackson takes the cake and whatever food items fans can give him to just see his back end leaving the north side. Good riddance.
