Commented on Noah Syndergaard: on the trade market for a Cubs shortstop? on Aug 18 2014, 9:31p
the guy he reminded me a bit of was Matt Cain circa 2005 (for the relatively old-timey prospectors here)

as an aside, I hate the line of "working on delivery issues"

I would not be surprised at all if Jackson spends at least part of the season in A+ next year
