Bob Nightengale tells us something interesting:

 

Not so quiet, eh, Bob?

The most interesting part of that is the “not Brian Cashman” part. Sounds like Rafael Soriano part deux, where ownership — or maybe team president Randy Levine — is playing GM. Which is fun considering they apparently sent Cashman to Nashville with no money or mandate to do anything.

Blue Jays designate Edwin Jackson for assignment

Back in May journeyman Edwin Jackson debuted with the Toronto Blue Jays. When he did so, he made history by suiting up for a record 14th different team in his 17-year big league career.

Sadly the 14th time wasn’t the charm, as Jackson has been knocked around pretty good with Toronto, posting an 11.12 ERA in 28 and a third innings over eight appearances, five of which came as starts. He was just insanely hittable over that span, allowing a staggering 15.6 hits per nine innings. As such, it’s not too surprising that the Jays designated Jackson for assignment today. They did so to make room for Jacob Waguespack, who will start tonight’s game against the Red Sox.

Jackson, 35, will not try to latch on with team number 15. Or, I suppose, he he has almost even odds to re-join an old team.
