On Tuesday March 24th Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson asked Siri to take him to the ballpark, but she had other ideas. Siri ended up leading Jackson to the wrong stadium which ended up being about 5 miles away from where he needed to be. Jackson ended up missing his start, but would come in the 2nd inning to pitch. He allowed 8 runs on 9 hits in just 1 ⅔ innings pitched. So was Siri actually trying to help the Cubs?
Edwin Jackson has been nothing but a mediocre pitcher in his career with a career ERA of 4.63 and hasn’t had a season with an ERA lower than 4.00 since 2011. He’s always had issues with command with 619 career walks and 1227 career strikeouts, which is worse than a 2:1 strikeout to walk ratio. Even the no-hitter Jackson threw back in 2010 was awful as it took him 149 pitches and he walked 8 batters while only striking out 6. With the Cubs predicted to be good this season was Siri trying to forewarn the Cubs and tell them it’s time to move on from Jackson? I guess only time will tell.
