Oh The Irony, It Is Delicious
This really isn't all that newsworthy as far as the White Sox are concerned, but I haven't been able to post here the last few days because I've been too busy following the whims of 18-year olds over at the day job and just didn't have time.
Still, in case you hadn't heard, Edwin Jackson signed a one-year deal with the Washington Nationals on Thursday, and I find it funnier than hell.
You'll remember when the White Sox got Jackson from Arizona in a trade during the 2010 season. Word at the time was that the Sox had traded Daniel Hudson to Arizona for Jackson because they were planning on flipping Jackson to Washington for Adam Dunn.
It never happened.
Instead Jackson finished the year on the south side, pitching really well against the Royals of the world, filling us all with hope about 2011. Then Adam Dunn signed with the team that winter.
Well, now Dunn is with the White Sox, Jackson is with the Nationals, and Hudson is still a Diamondback. Just like the way it was always supposed to be.
If only we could erase the entire 2011 season that took place between it all happening.
