Mark Trumbo

The slugger who always had the power, Mark Trumbo, also had a career year in 2016. This one for another American League East team in the Baltimore Orioles.

Trumbo smashed 47 home runs this past season. There’s no doubt the power he can provide. However he is an all or nothing guy and he struck out 170 times in 2016. C

espedes is a more complete hitter and while he still strikes out a lot, he has been more disciplined this season, taking more pitches and not swinging out of the strike zone as much as he used to.

Other than God, sports are my biggest love. My teams are the Mets, Knicks, NY Giants, NY Rangers and St Johns basketball (St. John's alumni). I especially love the Mets like crazy, more than any other team and seeing them win the World Series would be a dream come true and definitely the best sports moment. The Knicks are a close second. I also like to write, so combine that with my passion for sports equals a perfect scenario, I would love to do sports writing long term. If not that, then probably sports broadcasting, cause I love to talk sports as well. In addition to writing for ESNY, I'm also currently writing for Metsmerizedonline.
