Hell no.
He's very inconsistent, heck, he's the definition of inconsistent, and yet they give him this much $$ at this term? Insanity.
Pretty much...pretty much. This is a huge overpayment for a guy that is a borderline top-20 starter.
It just seems like the Dodgers are desperately trying to win after failing so many years and they're willing to take some pretty big risks along the way.
