Yes, his track record is odd and he's not an "ace", but I see no reason to doubt he'll continue to be an effective starter.
Being an effective starter and being worth one or two of your best prospects aren't one in the same. I don't doubt he'll put up another year or two of being effective. I truly doubt he'll be anything like he was this past season or worth giving up your best prospects for.
