Actually he was a pretty damn good offensive player his entire time in the NL. Obviously he brings nothing with the glove and with his legs but laughter, but having a wRC+ over 100 each year and over 125 in all but two years was pretty impressive.
Difference between the two is Trumbo is a better runner/fielder (although he's poor himself) and can't draw a walk while K'ing a ton. A poor mans Dunn is a good comparison.

Re: MLB: off season/hot stove
Three-way trade appears imminent between the Diamondbacks, Angels and White Sox. Nothing completely confirmed yet, but the apparent groundwork is the Diamondbacks get Mark Trumbo and two prospects; Angels get Tyler Skaggs and Hector Santiago; the White Sox would purportedly get Howie Kendrick and Adam Eaton.
Unless the Diamondbacks are getting el primo prospects, they are getting screwed over in this deal.
the Diamondbacks wanting Trumbo in lieu of Choo when they're the polar opposites of OBP in baseball, maybe.
Also, Mark Trumbo's name is highly onomatopoetic.
