DateQuestionAnswer
2016-05-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)What player(s) has surprised you the most at the 1/4 mark of the season at the MILB levels and the MLB level?
(fightingmoose from Manitoba)
Jackie Bradley Jr., Jake Arrieta, Mark Trumbo, and Nick Castellanos (Jim Walsh)
2016-05-18 19:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of impact do you see Trey Mancini having at the major league level?
(Tom from Oakland)
This is unrelated but I called New England Collegiate summer baseball games back like five years ago when Trey Mancini played for the Holyoke Blue Sox while he was at Notre Dame...Anyway...I don't see him having a huge impact. There's not a ton of power there for a corner infielder, which is why they went out and signed Pedro Alvarez and traded for Mark Trumbo. (George Bissell)
2016-04-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)I own Freddie Freeman and Albert Pujols in an OBP league. Given how cold both have started, should I drop one and pick up Mark Teixeria, Carlos Santana, Lucas Duda, or Mark Trumbo?
(Truganini from CO)
Probably not. The one I'd consider is Carlos Santana, but for me, the difference between AVG and OBP leagues doesn't move the needle enough to ditch Pujols or Freeman for any of the guys you listed. Plus, it's only been a week and a half. Calm down. It's baseball, not football. You have ~150 games left. (Scooter Hotz)
2015-12-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Mark Trumbo and $2 mil for a good but not awesome arb-eligible reliever... Who wins that trade?
(Andrew from Seattle)
Probably Seattle. I'm just not a fan of Trumbo at all. That skill-set and I do not get along. We are not friends on MySpace. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-04-29 20:00:00 (link to chat)Can Oswaldo Arcia be a poor man's Mark Trumbo this season? If not, how long until he is?
(Alex from Austin)
He could be a regular Mark Trumbo later this season. The power is real and the contact issues are as well. (Bret Sayre)
2014-09-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)FFF!!! Even with only one podcast this year, I rode the 411 strategy and philosophy to fantasy domination. Just saying. Also, outlook for Jose Abreu next year? Given the lack of MLB track record or poor understanding of how to Cuban stats relate to MLB stats, are we seeing the ceiling and should expect regression or are there more adjustments in the future (e.g. ridiculous contact rate in the second half v. first half).
(moonkyu from SF)
Glad to hear it! As for Abreu, my sources sold me this year on his "anywhere" power, but his command of the strike zone was a total wild card, so I expected a Mark Trumbo or Adam Dunn type of season: 35-40 homers but a shaky average. A 112-40 K-BB ratio is very manageable in today's game, when it comes with his kind of power... I don't think he'll hit .322 every year, but clearly his average won't be a liability. He's a first-rounder in pretty much every format next year, given the league-wide decline in power in recent seasons. (Cory Schwartz)
2014-07-22 15:00:00 (link to chat)I know Kyle Schwarber was only in Kane County for a minute, but did you get a chance to see him live? If so, whatcha think?
(Scott from Lincolnshire)
Limited look, but I saw him in college a bit as well. Dude can hit. Not a catcher. They can try, but I don't think it works out. Can fake it in LF, I mean, Mark Trumbo is playing LF.

Cubs got an impact bat and quite a few million dollar arms. Impressive draft. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-06-17 20:00:00 (link to chat)Who is the player you find yourself overvaluing (or just ending up with on your team) more than others?
(Kel from Goodburger)
Is it too cliche to say Adam Dunn? We went around the table on this one and here's what we got: Ben: "I have a soft spot for Evan Longoria that results in what we have come to call irrational affection." Ian: "In general, I'll overvalue prospects relative to my colleagues, or possibly sanity, would dictate. In particular, I'll remember prospect value even after the majors has gotten in the way, so I'll be one of the last off the Jason Heyward train, for example." Jared: "I tend to have a special fondness for guys who can mash the ball, without stopping to think too much about whether they can get on base. Like, say, Khris Davis. Or Chris Davis. Or any other variant thereof." Ben adds: "...like Mark Trumbo!" (Scoresheet Chat with Ben, Jared, and Ian)
2014-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is CJ Cron going to have similar MLB Career to Mark Trumbo?
(Jesse from Santa Paula,Ca)
CJ Cron wishes... (Jeff Moore)
2013-12-10 18:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on the Angels/Dbacks/White Sox trade? How do you like Santiago and Skaggs in Anaheim?
(Dennis from LA)
Hi Dennis.

I'm glad somebody asked this.

Let's start with the White Sox. A lot of the smart baseball folks on my Twitter timeline were enthused by Adam Eaton, but I'm not all that excited. Even if you see him as a starter and not a fourth outfielder, Eaton's upside seems limited to me. His batting averages in the minor leagues were PCL driven and I see more of a .260 hitter here with not enough power to make a huge splash. From a needs perspective, I can see why the Sox gave up Hector Santiago, but I think the Sox could have done a little better.

The Diamondbacks made the play for a big power hitter, but while Mark Trumbo might hit 35-40 home runs for Arizona he has a number of flaws. He isn't a good on base option, and his defense in the outfield is going to be a big downgrade for the D-backs. Moving an outfielder made sense for Arizona but moving Eaton for another outfielder isn't necessarily the right play. Trumbo is an overall upgrade on Eaton, though, so even though the Diamondbacks are paying a lot for the right to this upgrade, it is an improvement overall.

However, the Diamondbacks didn't just give up Eaton. They also gave up on Tyler Skaggs. A number of scouts/scouting types are down on Skaggs now, but he's still very young and could develop into more than just a #3 or #4 starter. The Angels give up Trumbo and lose out on a power hitter but gain some considerable upside in both Skaggs and Santiago...and avoid paying a pitcher like Ubaldo Jimenez $15-16 million per year in this crazy free agent market. Maybe Skaggs and Santiago work out and maybe they don't, but I like the play that the Angels made here. From a fantasy perspective, the park is going to help both of those pitchers out a lot, but from a baseball perspective the Angels suddenly look a lot stronger than they did yesterday.

2013-12-10 18:00:00 (link to chat)So I'm walking around the hotel in my Birkenstocks, thinking about taking a bath, when I hear about todays three-team trade. Who are the trades fantasy winners/losers?
(Jeff Passan from #BathEvening)
Hi Jeff:

I already answered the three-way-trade question a couple of questions ago, but looked at it more from an MLB perspective. From a fantasy standpoint, Adam Eaton probably figures to gain more playing time, while Alejandro de Aza could lose time or get traded. Mark Trumbo should see a home run boost moving from Anaheim to Arizona. Tyler Skaggs and Hector Santiago both benefit moving to pitchers' parks. Archie Bradley is the sneaky winner; he might have seen his timetable moved forward with the trade of Skaggs out of the organization. (Mike Gianella)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Not a prospect, but I'm trying to figure out if Mark Trumbo is legitimately prone to slumping in the 2nd half of the year. Is this a disturbing trend, or a small sample size problem (only two real MLB years to compare)?
(captnamerca from dunedin)
That is interesting. I would assume the sample size is severely to small currently, but I bet you are not the only one looking in on it. (Zach Mortimer)
2012-12-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)After Mark Trumbo's jekyll/hyde 2012 should I be terrified or comfortable?
(Eric from Costa Mesa)
Comfortable. I don't think his second half is more informative than his first half. (Sam Miller)
2012-10-16 14:00:00 (link to chat)Darin Ruff or Mark Trumbo?
(Santi Cazorla from Sacramento)
Trumbo. (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-05-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where do you sit on this trade Adam Dunn, Mark Trumbo, and Brandon McCarthy for Michael Cuddyer and Martin Prado?
(Jerome from T Hills)
I'll take the first side. (Paul Sporer)
2011-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Use your Rick Reilly/Bill Simmons sense and complete this sentence: "Mark Trumbo or Albert Pujols at third base is scarier than ________________________________________
(Lerry N. from Toronto)
Reilly: Mark Trumbo at third base is scarier than leaving your kids with their uncle Jerry Sandusky for the weekend.

Simmons: Mark Trumbo at third base is scarier than whatever shady business Mr. Miagi was involved in to be able to afford that huge backyard and half-dozen classic cars on a handyman's salary. I bet if Lestor Freaman got up in his business, he'd find out Mr. Miagi controlled the smack market in Encino AND Reseda. A whole bunch of little ninjas working for him, out on the street hollering "Sweep The Leg! I got that Sweep The Leg!"

Reilly AND Simmons: Mark Trumbo at third base is scarier than a stripper with an Adam's apple.

I personally don't think it's scary, so much as unlikely and not really necessary. It's not like the Angels don't have a third baseman. They have Alberto Callaspo, who has produced 8.3 WARP over the past three years. David Wright has produced 9.0 WARP over the past three years. Everybody acts like the Angels have to do something about a third base problem, but there's no problem. During spring training this year, the Angels should convert Alberto Callaspo to left field, and then convert him BACK to third base, just so it looks like they're being really proactive. (Sam Miller)
2011-10-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know there doesnt seem to be any clear updates as of late, but i was curious about whether or not there are rumblings in the industry about whether or not Kendrys Morales' leg injury has progressed any further or if this freak injury looks like it will really derail his career and make ANA/LAA contenders in the 1B market this offseason.

You didn't like Mark Trumbo? I realize the OBP issue prevents him from being a star, but he has some value, no? (Kevin Goldstein)
