    That's a million dollars for every card in the deck ( excluding jokers).

    Take out a deck of playing cards and spread them out on the table ( or the floor...your choice). Imagine every card is a million dollars going into your bank account.

    That's a lot of moola for a slightly above average 29 year old , who has been with 7 teams in 10 years.

    Mediocrity is here to stay in the sports and entertainment industry.

    Laughable. Maybe two years and 15 million. It will be a total wast of money because the Cubs aren't gong anywhere with InEpstein during Jackson's contract. Better to invest it elsewhere by holding in reserve for better optons through trade and farm maturity.

    they could be in contention in 3-4 years. that is a long time to judge a team without knowing anything about their farm system

    I dont know much about teh Cubs farm system; however, I do know a bit about Theo.  I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Theo is probably overrating the Cubs prospects.

    Do you think he "over-rated" Jackson?

    He basically paid the same as Dempster times 2 years.

    For sure.  Maybe he overpaid Jackson because trading some of his beloved prospects wasnt an option?

    Jackson's WHIP always bothered me, but the guy gives you innings and keeps you in games.

    Would you have prefered Jackson over Dempster?

    Absolutely not.  While they are both high WHIP pitchers and both get into jams , Dempster gets a ton of Ks and is therefore much better at getting out of jams.

    Also Dempster is only 2 yrs.  Dempsters upside is much higher.  He has had many full years and half years (including first half 2012) that are better than Jackson's absolute ceiling.

    Dempster is talented but inconsistent.  Jackson is mediocre.

    Re: Cubs sign Edwin Jackson

    I didnt see the Dempster signing coming, but I didnt hate it when it happened.  I was on the avoid Jackson like the plague brigade.

    Dempster's 2012 NL ERA was in the low 2's.  Jacksons was in the low 4s.

    I honestly dont think Jackson could keep his ERA under 5 in the AL East.  He had an ERA of 5 when he was there, and he is really the same guy.  Still not enough movement on his fastball. Still falls behind in counts, still way too hittable.

    Pass. Pass. Pass.

    Just my opinion but I don't see Theo doing anything special with the Cubs.  Edwin Jackson at four years 52mil is nothing short of crazy like many of his moves in Boston.

    Well said. The Cubs also got Villanueva who is no slouch, IMO.

    Re: Cubs sign Edwin Jackson

    If I were to put together all the forum posts this winter, one of the following would prove true:

    • Every Free Agent signed was overpaid by the team that signed him; or
    • The market has moved.

    I wonder which one it is?

    Theo pulls the strings though. after his time in boston where LL tried to run the show instead of him you think hes letting anyone else make the ecisions now? Hoyer is just a figurehead
