Smardzija. You don't need another OF.

I'd disgaree. Trumbo has what, 16 ABs so far? That's a little gimpy. Sure he has 2 OFs in his UTL slots, but he also has a pretty stacked pitching staff, and Reimold could easily be better than Aviles. He can probably stream Smardzija or better stats if he anyway and Reimold will hold a lot more value if he breaks out. If he doesn't you drop him afterwards with no hard feelings. I think it makes more sense to gamble on the bat than add a borderline arm.

Just a difference of how each run their own team. I have no faith in Reimold and I think Smardzija can be a good arm. I usually load my bench up with arms and then stream pitchers. I don't like having too many bench spots filled with hitters when I can just drop a SP for a hitter if and when an injury happens.

Mostly I'm with you on this. However, in the early stages of the season I'm still on the lookout for breakout bats, and Reimold could be one of those. Even if he did break out the bench here would have too many bats of course, as you mention, which would have to be addressed at some point.
