They are pretty even in my eyes. But Smoak has been hitting more for average then Trumbo has been this season.

I'd say Smoak. He seems to be coming into his own in Seattle.

Thanks for the help on mine.

I'd go with Mark Trumbo. Smoak has been hitting well of late.

M.Trumbo has a better Batting Average. Trumbo has 5 Stolen Bases, which is a nice bonus for a 1B.

Really tough call. My gut feeling: Smoak, but if you need some SB help, Trumbo maybe a little bit better for you. Thanks for the help.

Smoak. No competition, while Branyan will be playing against righties at 1b potnetially.

Smoak was a top 10 prosepect, reminds me of a young Tex.

Decided to go with Smoak. I like his pedigree more, and I like his spot in the order more. This is a mild keeper league (keep 3) so if he has a good year he could be a keeper.

Both doesn't get a whole lotta protection but I'd go with Smoak since his overall number should be better hitting in the 3 hole. If Trumbo moves up in the order then I like him a lot more.

I pretty much agree with what High Cheese said. Although I'm hoping Trumbo kills it since I got him on my team.
