Sounds like Gavin Floyd.

Wish I could be paid that much to be mediocre at my job.

I can't read or hear Edwin Jackson's name without flashing back to Khan's Epic Rants about Jackson's "boat-anchor salary."

There has to be a reason why hes been on 8 teams since 2008. I think it makes sense that the team with the boy genius locked him up.

He'll be on three more by the end of this contract.

Well, I guess we'll see Daniel Hudson traded to the Cubs for Jackson July 2014.

Yep. They aren't just similar in stats, but also the ability to frustrate. Both Gavin and Edwin have front of the rotation "stuff" but neither has the consistency to put it all together for an entire year. With Gavin, he lives and dies with his curveball. With Edwin, it was his splitter that he needed to locate in order to succeed. Neither pitcher can overcome a start where they don't have command of their bread and butter pitch.

I remember those rants well. It's as if Edwin Jackson ran over the Khan family dog with his sports car or something.

And there, ladies and gentlemen, is the only real significant difference between Jackson and Floyd.

I don't why but I'm a sucker for strikeout pitchers and pitchers who throw hard.

Loved Edwin Jackson and Javier Vazquez for those reasons, despite getting average results in the end.

Jackson posted a 3.66 ERA with the Sox, and Vasquez had probably the best season by a Sox pitcher in the last 25 years. If that's average, I'll take it.

Esteban Loaiza begs to differ.
