Yordan Alvarez or Anthony Rendon this year?

Recommended Posts

Everything equal I think you have to go with rendon. Now, if you are talking about Rendon in 1st or 2nd Rd, vs Yordan in Rd 10 (as an example), then that would be a much tougher decision.

Not even close? Rendon, they guy that has put up MVP type numbers in the last two seasons and is one of the best hitters in the game? Not sure we are talking about the same player. Yes, theres a risk numbers will go down in LAA, but he will still hit. Theres also a risk that alvarez numbers will go down is his sophmore year. Or that he might not hit without knowing what’s coming. ;)

Rendon for this year for sure

In a 1 year only scenario, it Rendon for me.  And not even close.  A LOT more proven, and will have a very high floor.  The hype around Alvarez is insane, its only going to lead to short term disappointment IMO.  Especially with the pressure surrounding the Astros this year after the cheating scandal.  I expect Alvarez will be a solid player, but one that will have a slight sophomore slump.  Better chance he finishes outside top 50 players than in the top 20 IMO.

If it's your belief that eliminating doubt is a huge key when drafting a fantasy team, the answer is obvious, it's Rendon.

I’m keeping Yordan. I think he puts up better numbers across the board than Rendon. That’s NOT to say Rendon won’t put up good numbers, I just think Rendon will regress slightly with new location and contract.

Look at mine?

I'm keeping both in my league. I'd go with Rendon for 1 year, or Yordan if you're looking more towards the future. Yordan will regress while Rendon is Mr. consistency.
