Keeping for sure: Acuna, Soto, Rendon, deGrom

Last 2: Ketel Marte, Eloy, Bichette, Josh Bell, Snell, Severino, Soroka, Gallen

Is it Roto or H2H? Snell and Bichette for me.

Marte and snell

I'm not expecting a big year from rendon

I'm keeping eloy or vlad or bell over him

I know you guys will say I'm nuts.

Rendon had a career year

Has negatives against him now

Tough hitters park

New league

Pressure of huge deal

History shows year 1 usually bleak

Stanton a example


This. I think that people who expect Rendon to repeat or even come close to his 2019 are either amateurs or are not very good players.

I don't see how I would drop Rendon, yeah he's 29 but I mean he was a top 10 hitter last year 

He had a contract year fluke. It happens often and he also got a juiced ball to help him. Just consider that he was a completely different player for pretty much his entire career. You should trade him while he’s not a bust yet.

2017 and 2018 he hit .301 and .308, last year hit .319

HRS went from 24/25 to 34, RBI from 92/100 to 126

He was 6th and 11th place in MVP voting in 2017 and 2018...last year 3rd

I see he did about 10-15% better last year the the previous couple years but do we really think he crashes below what he did his age 27, 28 seasons???

My league is 10 teams 6 keepers so that's saying you wouldn't keep Rendon as a top-60 pick which seems absurd considering last year he was drafted mid/late 30s and blew up.  I just can't see how I would take another guy over him like Eloy/Bo...even though they are so young, still I feel Rendon should have a good handful of years left...

2014: 21 HR in 683 PA
2015: 5 HR in 315 PA

2016: 20 HR in 647 PA

2017: 25 HR in 605 PA

2018: 24 HR in 597 PA

2019: 34 HR in 646 PA

 

2019 is a clear outlier here and at his age players don’t suddenly become different players. He didn’t change his mechanics, he just had a contract year and a juiced ball.

RBI totals:

2014: 83

2015: 25

2016: 85

2017: 100

2018: 92

2019: 126

Again 2019 sticks out like a sore thumb, when he was the same player for years.

 

Steamer projects: .284 28 HR 99 RBI 92 R 4 SB

 

Are those first round numbers? Are they even second round numbers? Sell high because his value will drop.

I don't know that I can sell him - maybe, but he would be one of my 6 keepers (new keeper league started last year) I can't imagine not keeping him, meaning more or less he is not a top 60 player...
