    Rendon or Kipnis

    Going forward in say a dynasty league who would you pick?

    Now regardless of your pick would you agree it's not an easy choice nor is it a landslide either way.

    Mind you this if from a fantasy perspective so some things aren't taken into account.

    Close but Rendon for me.
    With the deepest of regrets I am announcing that I will be leaving Pro Sports Daily. No reason in particular but wanted to thank everyone for a great 6 years here. Lots of great discussion and good poll series as well. Also fun re-drafts. Best of luck to you all in the future.

    Kipnis. More proven, and Rendon has had some health scares. But it isn't a blowout. Just more information on Kipnis

    They're pretty much the same guy.. Kipnis will steal quite a few more bags than Rendon and has shown just a wee bit more power.. Power could be increasing from Rendon as he matures.. Rendon is two or three years younger and has versatility in his corner, being qualified as both a 2B and a 3B... From a FF-Baseball perspective the SB's matter. So, does the flexibility for roster location. Kipnis would be the choice by a hair, only because he'll be hitting 3rd for a team that scores more runs & Rendon has been slotted into the second spot in the order..

    Curious what him hitting third rather than second means in who is the better player?

    Agreed and the main point was to see if it was a run away pick.

    I ask cause I am in a dynasty league which you keep most of your roster and traded Kipnis, King Felix, Springer for Rendon, Staton, and Hutchinson (he was a throw in I know he's nothing to be happy about).

    One guy claims I was taken to the cleaners and was an idiot cause Rendon is a scrub. I just really wanted Staton and I also like Rendon going forward.

    Losing Springer sucks but, his K's worry me and I also have Joc Pederson waiting in the wings.

    TBH.. I'd be more on board the Kip/King/Spring side of that trade..not because of Rendon.. or Giancarlo.. but w/r to Hutchinson, I'm no fan.. The guy is a scrub / back of the rotation soft tosser.. He's going to get his lunch handed to him in the AL East.. He's a BACK of the Rotation kind of SP.. On a bad team, he's an MOR.. on a good team, he'd be fighting to keep his spot in the rotation.. If anyone was a throw in .. it was him..

    jmho....

    I said he was the throw in? I didn't even ask for him nor did I care to get him. Only reason he was sent was to make it an even 3 for 3 and roster spot matchup for roster spot matchup. I planned on dropping him.

    Rendon and Stanton were all I asked for.

    He is saying the third should have been better than Hutch
