I don't think it's dumb... but I wouldn't say it's working

Career average is fine but Edler did have a good career average too before he missed his last 8 (I have no idea if that's true, but it feels like that) Lapierre's average looks more like an anomaly than anything else imo but I guess we could ride him for a while. I'd rather give Schroeder a look.
