Why? Kemp-Choo

Postby joe112 » Thu May 02, 2013 7:25 pm

I was offered Kemp for Choo, Why?, is something wrong with Kemp that I don't know about? Should I jump all over this? Thanks.

Buddy, Don't miss out on a game changing deal because of someone's humorous hypothesis. 99 out of 100 people would hit accept immediately. I recommend you listen to the majority on this one.

This just isn't true at all...

2013: GP-27, K-28 = 1.034 K/game
2008-12: GP-743, K-724 = 0.974 K/game

An increase of 0.06 K/game (in a small sample size too) is NOTHING to worry or overreact about. This "analysis" wasn't necessary for this trade but just needed to get that out there.

That said his production is down a bit from what was expected but he's still an elite player. Not that it needed saying after all this but I would do the trade.
