8 teams in 11 seasons. Why has he bounced around and he's not even 30 yet?
Good enough to have trade value, but not good enough to be a core piece. Tampa in particular bought him on the cheap (they sold high on closer Danys Baez) and eventually parlayed Jackson to Detroit for a much needed outfield bat in Matt Joyce.
he has the stuff to be one of the best starters in the league.
he just never pitches like it.
Yea he is just SO inconsistent, a lot of guys on the radio here in STL used to talk about how some games it seemed like he was tipping his pitches and would just get absolutely rocked while other games he looked dominant.
Cards and Reds are going to beat up on that rotation. It's really not even that good.
The Cards and Reds are way better teams. Theo and Hoyer have built a solid rotation, though, without a doubt. There isn't an ace in the bunch, but they're good one through five, and Wood and Feldman are nice depth starters to have for when Baker and/or Villanueva inevitably get hurt.
