Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Trumbo's ADP is 68.7 so a 6th/7th rd selection. 7guys before in order are:Napoli,Kimbrel,Shields,Gordon,Lawrie,Zobrist, and Bourn
the 7 after Trumbo are: Grienke,Medlen,Phillips,Altuve,Rizzo,MiguelMontero, and Wieters.
Among those 14 I want Trumbo over Napoli,Montero,Wieters and Phillips. (just shows you Catcher after Posey,Perez,Mauer,and Rosario can be waited on well beyond the 6th rd if not the 10-12thrds.) Meanwhile a Ortiz/Willingham are being drafted 50picks below Trumbo and that's about the kind of player I see Trumbo as. I just think there are Trumbo types that can be drafted twice as late as where Trumbo is going. Maybe not as much upside but overall same expectations. the 5-8 rds to me are where you separate yourself or ruin it. That's where Trumbo is going to be drafted and he's a pick I see ruining more than separating. He has to fall to be worthy a draft selection or be 3b eligible.
It's one of those, I like him but I don't. He needs another season in him to show me he can be counted on.

your right, you can get trumbo types alot later. hes never hit for avg in any level of his career so cant really expect much from him there. Alvarez is a good example of someone very very close to trumbo, with a much cheaper price tag.
also good chance someone in your league over values trumbo bc of the flukey first half he had. i dont see him as a value pick this yr.
