    theojust ant get it right with free agency big tickets... i could see him channelling his inner ben and offering a year 25m deal that noone else was competing with. perhaps even 3 years 40m... but to give this ultimate jambroni (70-701 the 4th  year is simply malfeaseance. at best, he's a healthier version of aaron cook!




    I wonder if Theo spends money that way in his personal life.  Screw it, this wine costs 500, but I'll give you 1.5K for it, and I'll buy the whole warehouse worth.

    People need to realize that FA prices for pitchers that have little to no injury history, and can give you 200 IP is expensive. Dempster fits that mold and Jackson fits that mold. if Dempster was 29-30, he wouldve easily got 4 years at 13M per.

    Im one of the few that just accept that, it is what it is, and will not complain about a pricetag of a certain player. FA is expensive and its only going to get higher.

    As far as value on FG, Jackson is well worth that amount. actually hes worth more.

    • Willie Mays was paid less than $2m (in 1950s/60s dollars) in salary during his entire 22-year MLB career.*
    • IMO a good teacher, soldier, social worker, cop or forest ranger delivers far more "value" to society than a great baseball player despite the great entertainment and scarcity value of the latter (to some, including me) and they are paid jackpike.
    • Lots of people e.g. actors and other artists earn far more than most baseball players.

    That's all meaningless in a market that is competing for Edwin Jackson's services.  "Value" is relative.  If Jackson had signed for $6m/season I'd be horrified at Dempster for $13.25m.  If Jackson had signed for $25m/season I'd be thrilled at getting a similar guy for half the price.

    The bottom line is they got a pitcher who is actually worth 13M per year!

    Unless the Cubs sign one of our players - who cares what Theo does?

    Jackson Lifetime stats:  W-L%  .496  ERA  4.40  WHIP  1.438

    Dempster Lifetime Stats:  W-L%  .500   ERA  4.33  WHIP  1.430

    Why is Jackson worth 13 million, but Dempster is not?

    Because Dempster is on the Red Sox and Jackson isn't. Try to keep up space.
