If Gil Meche was worth $55MM over 5 years in 2006, why isn't Jackson worth 5/60?
I most definitely would give him 60 mil over 5 years. Would he come to KC for that much though?
The worst thing KC could do right now is throw Duffy\Crow\Random young arm out there for 150+ innings each so early in their careers... We might as well go ahead and hire a team surgeon for all the arm and shoulder surgeries we'll be performing in the next 2 to 3 years.
Jackson is durable, has experience and has shown he can perform at a high level. He's your prototypical #3 pitcher on a contending baseball team.
