Trumbo or Smoak? WHIR

Postby studepaber » Mon Jun 06, 2011 1:46 pm

In a H2H points league, currently have Trumbo on my team in a UTIL spot and wonder if I should keep him or drop for Smoak (by the way just dropped Torii Hunter for Trumbo). Can't keep either of them past this year so which of these players should have a better 2011? They have similar stats now, Trumbo has 6 steals tho.

Trumbo is the better player. Smoak is too streaky at this point and his lineup isn't very solid behind him, as evidenced by his pathetic run total. In the future I might lean towards Smoak, but for the rest of this season I'd rather have Trumbo.

They are fairly close but I may have to lean towards Smoak currently. Though I do envision bigger power numbers from Trumbo.

These two guys are so close at this point ... Smaok is batting 3rd, so I like Smoak at this point. If Trumbo starts moving up the order, he might be the guy to go with.

I'd go with Trumbo (think of all the awsome teams names you can come up with: The Rusty Trombones). H2H, the potential SB's are the deal breaker between these two.
