The latest on the White Sox-Edwin Jackson-Adam Dunn front

Jul 30, 2010, 2:55 PM EDT

We’ve been waiting all afternoon to hear something new from the White Sox, who many people suspect are going to flip the newly-acquired Edwin Jackson to the Nationals for Adam Dunn.

The latest comes from USA Today’s Bob Nightengale: the Sox currently have Jackson in a proposed package for Dunn. Nightengale adds that if the Sox manage to flip Jackson, they’ll try to pry Brett Myers from the Astros.  That last part seems like a stretch to me, however, in that the Astros have said repeatedly that they were going to keep Myers if they traded Roy Oswalt.  I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

And our waiting could soon be over.’s Bill Ladson reported a little less than two hours ago that Dunn was at the movies — seriously — and couldn’t be reached by anyone. If there is a deal you figure they’d want to tell him first, so maybe they’re waiting on him. But the movie’s probably almost over now!

I just hope it isn’t “Inception.”  If you think Dunn is a distracted ballplayer now, imagine what he’ll be like as he ponders all of the ins and outs of that flick over the next couple of days.

    If he’d just seen a double feature of El Topo and The Sheltering Sky, he still wouldn’t be able to stop a ball hit down the line unless he was straddling it and it lodged in his bellybutton. Was it the movies – or was it inherent vice?
    It doesn’t matter in his case.

    Sox need some pitching with a bat if trade Jackson.

    My money is on either Salt or Dinner for Schmucks.
    Dunn would more than adequately fill the void of big, lovable masher on the Sox that Thome left behind.
