If only he played for Oakland. "Trumbo the Elephant" headlines would run rampant.

Mark Trumbo has big time power. You can see for yourself as he takes a Rich Harden slider deep over the Center Field wall at Oakland Coliseum [Big Mark Trumbo]. This was HR No. 18 on the year for the Angels rookie. He also has 8 Stolen Bases. Trumbo is on pace to put up a 30 HR - 13 SB season... and he's owned in only 41% of Y! leagues. This is absurd, Trumbo should be universally owned. I see people asking if they should drop Adam Dunn and Billy Butler for Trumbo. The answer is a resounding "Yes!". Drop "the Human Fan" and "Baby Huey" and grab the power/speed combination of Mark Trumbo. In today's game there is no reason for 30 HR potential to remain unclaimed from your free agent pool, especially when those HR are attached to double digit steals. Trumbo is no fluke. He's a big dude (6'4, 220 lbs) who hit 36 HR last year in 139 games at AAA. He is a legit power threat and Mike Scioscia's aggressive game plan is working for the big lug.
