This one appeared on the sidebar of Jayson Stark’s latest column. He says “rumblings continue to surface” about it, but this is the first I’ve heard of a deal for Adam Dunn being a three-team affair:
Rumblings continue to surface about a possible three-team deal involving
the Nationals, White Sox and Diamondbacks that would send Edwin Jackson to Washington, Dunn to Chicago and a bunch of young pitchers to Arizona.
I get the Dunn to Chicago part, because people have talked about that. And I get the Edwin Jackson to Washington part, because someone mentioned that once a month or two ago too. But where, pray tell, are the “bunch of young pitchers” coming from? If Washington really had any that were worth a damn, they wouldn’t need Edwin Jackson. If Chicago had them, why wouldn’t they be offering them up to the Brewers in a Prince Fielder deal?
I want to believe it because it sounds like all kinds of fun, but this one just doesn’t make sense to me.
