I don't think anybody hates him. He just didn't live up to his billing on the mound. I like him a lot, but I never felt confident in him going in a big game like, say, Freddy Garcia in 2005 or Bartolo Colon in 2003, two of Kenny's other blockbuster pitching acquisitions.
Jake made a ton of money with the Sox to be a good, but not great, pitcher, which unfortunately completely tied their hands in other areas.
