He didn't say he didn't like the Plummer deal as it is now. He said he didn't like the original
attempt to get Jake for a 4th rounder. I didn't like it either.
The problem is that the media reported it as "probably a 4th round pick" but it was never officially announced that way. For all we know the original deal was exactly how it went down.
So how can he give the 'original' trade a grade when it wasn't what "officially" happened?
Per King MMQB its a 4th or 7th in '08
The 'original' deal was said to have been a 4th round pick in the 2007 draft. Of course it didn't turn out that way, but Deumig gave that trade a grade anyway?
Also, I'm not going off of what PK says eithe, right now it's a conditional pick in 2008.
