I’d say that Jackson’s slider has to show more bite, and he needs to hit the mitt and miss better his next time out, but after looking through the rest of the schedule, I don’t think that’s necessary. Here’s what he has to contend with if everybody stays on schedule (league rank in OPS): * Aug. 9: Baltimore (13th) * Aug. 14: Detroit (6th) * Aug. 20: Kansas City (9th) * Aug. 26: Baltimore (13th) * Aug. 31: Cleveland (12th) * Sept. 6: Detroit (6th) * Sept. 11: Kansas City (9th) * Sept. 17: Detroit (6th) * Sept. 22: Oakland (11th) * Sept. 28: Boston (1st) * Oct. 3: Cleveland (12th) Ho. Lee. Crap. This is a cakewalk.
