Today we get this from ESPN Insider:
Remember the frenzy surrounding proposed deals that would send Edwin Jackson and/or outfielder Curtis Granderson from Detroit to Seattle? The momentum appears to have slowed significantly. One person familiar with the talks told ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick that it's "pretty doubtful" the teams have enough common ground to make a trade.
Seattle has legitimate interest in Jackson, but isn't willing to part with the haul of young talent that Detroit GM David Dombrowski wants in return. The consensus is that Dombrowski is trying to "sell high" on Jackson after his 2009 All-Star season.
Surprise! Detroit thinks Edwin Jackson is really good. Seattle knows he isn't. A wonder the two sides can't agree on a package.
