Sickels:

The White Sox picked up Edwin Jackson from the Diamondbacks for Dan Hudson and David Holmberg. Jackson has a great arm but is a mediocre pitcher at this point. I like Dan Hudson a lot, and frankly his chance to pitch well down the stretch is just as good as Jackson’s, if not better. Holmberg is a decent Grade C+ pitching prospect. I don’t like this trade from the White Sox perspective at all. There are rumors that Jackson was supposed to be flipped to another team but it didn’t happen, so as it stands I think this is a bad trade for Chicago.

BTW, Hudson got the win in his first game as a D-back today.
