How he was used in the WS tells you all you need to know that he is no ace and doesn't deserver ace money.
Even though I was against the trade I'm glad we made the trade of Rasmus. Obviously without that trade we don't make the playoffs or win any series's in the playoffs. Jackson was a part and I'd go as far as to say without him as a 5th starter we wouldn't have made the playoffs. So, he deserves some credit, but just a little.
