Updates on Oswalt and Jackson

The latest pitching rumors:

* Danny Knobler of CBS suggests that Roy Oswalt may not be crazy about the Red Sox.

* ESPN’s Jim Bowden reported on Twitter that the Red Sox have made an offer to Edwin Jackson.

For a guy who has been traded six times, the 28-year-old Jackson has pretty good numbers (a fWAR of 11.2 the last three seasons) and is a decent bet to produce a good season. But he’s also a Scott Boras client.

Boras compared Jackson with Yu Darvish a few weeks ago, so the price could be high. But if Jackson is willing to land in Boston for a year, it makes a lot of sense.
