    Trumbo...rumor to be moved for pitcher.........hope Ben stays away from this

    Mark Trumbo - 1B - Angels

    Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com hears that there's a "good chance" that Mark Trumbo will be traded at this week's Winter Meetings.

    The Diamondbacks have been mentioned most prominently in trade talks, but Gonzalez hears that the Angels are engaged in talks with many teams. The thought is that the 27-year-old slugger will be moved for a pitcher. Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic hears that talks with the Diamondbacks are more focused on Tyler Skaggs than Trevor Cahill.

    Pretty sure Napoli's return mercifully put an end to the chances of Trumbo-to-Boston, and other really bad ideas for first base.

    I don't see Ben going after Trumbo.  1B is set with Napoli and no room in OF.  Nothing is really forcing Ben to make the move.

    While I agree that Trumbo will not be traded for now....it's not because we have no room in the OF.  Unless of course you think an outfield of Nava, Gomes, JBJ and Vic who does have injury issues is stellar.  I would LOVE to see them trade for a CF or LF who can do some damage at the plate and on the basepaths.  The loss of Ellsbury is going to be A LOT bigger than I think many here realize.  Losing the best leadoff hitter and best base stealer in the AL is pretty hard to replace.  And I hardly think a rookie that can't hit a curve or inside pitch is the answer.....

    Dempster and a non Top 10 prospect for Trumbo?  do it

    Move Gomes and you can platoon Nava & Trumbo in LF and save a ton of dough.....

    A non top 10 prospect and Dempster??  That would fetch us Trumbo's jock.  Dempster and a top 5 prospect?  yep....I'd do that....but they wouldn't do that either.

    We are not very far off from having our own version of Trumbo (only younger, cheaper, and with nowhere to go but up)...


    -Mark Trumbo in 2013 (678 PA): .234/.294/.453, 30 2B, 34 HR, 100 RBI, 184 K, 54 BB
    -Will Middlbrooks in 2013 (374 PA): .227/.271/.425, 18 2B, 17 HR, 49 RBI, 98 K, 20 BB

    Trumbo's off the board....

    Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the three-team trade that will send Mark Trumbo to the Diamondbacks is "done."

    Finally some action from this week's Winter Meetings. We're still waiting on an official announcement, but Piecoro hears that Trumbo and two players to be named later will head to the Diamondbacks while the Angels will receive Tyler Skaggs and Hector Santiago and Adam Eaton will be sent to the White Sox.

    Hope you are not confused with him and Trout??  Trout play OF while Trumbo play at 1b or DH.

    If Napoli isnt sign, Boston would have still be in the play for Trumbo.  But like everyone said, Napoli signed with Boston which mean Boston is not longer interested Trumbo!!

    I wouldn't say he was my guy per se but I thought he'd be a good fit and made sense in several ways...He's become less a priority since Naps re-signed.

    Sox former prospect Brandon Jacobs, who was dealt for Matt Thornton, is the additional prospect sent to Az in the Trumbo deal from the CWS.

    I am glad that we didn't bite on Trumbo, but this one portion of the deal perked me up:

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1883943-winners-and-losers-of-3-way-mark-trumbo-trade-between-angels-white-sox-d-backs

    The White Sox receive center fielder Adam Eaton, which could put the team in position to make another trade to free up space in a crowded outfield. 

    ______________________________

    We have traded with the white sox before, so I like the prospect of getting Alejandro De Aza in a trade to backup CF and be able to play all the outfield spots.  He has been a consistent hitter  and his numbers are great against left handed pitching and is a switch hitting outfielder.  Either that or a trade that would bring a similar player to Adam Eaton to the Red Sox would be ideal.
