Kemp is a righty. Doesn't have the baggage. Maybe less injury prone (not sure about that).
That was also part of it.
The LHB/RHB thing doesn't bother me that much, unless the player has really bad splits. Hamilton could only hit RHP.
Kemp should play in more games a year than Hamilton over the rest of their careers.
I think Kemp is a great fit for the Reds. Hopefully Jocketty can make that a reality.
