NLDS Game 4: More playoff baseball

Match points tonight for Milwaukee and Philly, as the Diamondbacks and Cardinals face double-elimination (and not the kind they'd hope). Two deadline trade dandies face off in the early game, Oswalt and Jackson. Oswalt came to the Phillies from the Astros in July 2010; Jackson left the White Sox - by way of Toronto - in July 2011.

If you count this year's three-way trade as two separate deals, Jackson has been traded no less than SIX TIMES in his nearly-10 year professional career. As already noted by Grant Brisbee, Edwin Jackson is basically the nexus/Kevin Bacon of the playoff baseball universe this season, considering the following:

In the late game, I noticed that Joe Saunders and Randy Wolf are essentially the same pitcher (I've never seen them photographer together), both this season and over their careers.
