Trumbo at third?

Postby Shivdaddy » Fri Mar 23, 2012 7:15 pm

Have Mark Reynolds at third and Moustakas on the bench. Should I cut Moustakas and pick up Trumbo? After 5 starts at third he would qualify as a third basemen.

I'd go with Trumbo. He had a great rookie year and should only get better... especially with Albert in the line-up. I had both last year and Moose stunk up the joint. He should get better as well but at this point, for power and RBI, I would go with Trumbo.

Reynolds and Trumbo have performed well at the Major League level... Moustakas hasn't done that yet, so he'd be the odd man out IMO. Obviously Moustakas has tons of power potential, but he had 5 HR's in over 300 AB's in the majors last year. I think he needs a year or two before you really start to see him reach the level that he's capable of playing at, whereas Reynolds is mashing 38 HR's a year over the last three years and Trumbo hit 29 HR's as a rookie last year (and isn't but like two years older than Moustakas). When you need to chooise between potential for 30 HR's and a track record of 30 HR's, go with the track record.

How much will Trumbo play this year? Should I trust Sociopath will run him out there on a daily basis or look another direction late in my draft?

Good question. I thought he was a lock for 3B but I just read today that the Angels look to play him at 3B for 40 games or so. 40 games? Where else is he gonna play? Yahoo has him second on the depth chart behind Callaspo at 3B . Really?

I hope he get his ABs somewhere.

Where on the roster could he get PT?? I thought the Angels were going to have Maicer Izturis play a little 3B too?? He would have been a great sleeper play if/when he got his 3B eligibility, but where could the ABs come from?? Maybe somebody out there knows more about the Angels situation??
