Oh, this gem from our thread in 2011.....

He strikes out a ton.
I mean, if you think Trumbo is going to become a perennial player and count on him to be in the lineup for years to come, think again. I'd almost guarantee he's at best a backup in 2 years.
Nothing like putting down a rookie in his first season. How do you like his numbers now?
201 AB, 68 hits, 28 runs, 15 doubles, 14 HRs, 39 RBIs, .328 AVR, .385 OBP, .620 slugging, 1.07 OPS. Downside is his KOs at 48.
Trumbo will be making someone else a backup.
Wells won't have a position once he gets back in July.
