BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-09-29 12:00:00 (link to chat)I managed to grab 3 studs at 3B on my keeper team, and really only have room to keep 2 next season as we only have one Util spot. It's an OBP league, where you add $10 to the keepers, so I'll get each guy for $11 next year, $21 the next, etc. How do you rank Rafael Devers, Anthony Rendon and Miguel Sano?
(matzabal from CO)
I think Rendon is the easy call here. Established major leaguer entering his peak, looks just like Handsome Rusev. What's not to like? Devers and Sano are both my large Dominican adult sons, and the OBP factor helps Sano, but he's likely not a long term third baseman, the body is a becoming an issue, and he's yet to play 120 games in a season. I'd take Devers if pressed, but it's well within the fudge factor. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-09-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)I ended up with a 3 headed monster at 3B on my keeper team: Rafael Devers, Anthony Rendon, and Miguel Sano. Given they will all cost about the same to keep, how would you rank them?
(matzabal from CO)
That's pretty impressive. Given that they're all really good it depends a lot on your scoring format--OBP league? Penalty for Ks? And how long do you get to keep them? Draft pick penalties attached? How many 3Bs can you start at once?

Rendon is probably the best all around player of the three, but you might need dingers more than his versatility, and he has the longest track record of injury. Then again, Rendon is also the most likely to stay at 3B in three years or so, as Sano and Devers seem like they'll be 1B eventually. (Nick Schaefer)
2017-08-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Anthony Rendon the most criminally underrated player in today's game? He's an absolute beast that nobody discusses.
(Matt from Chicago)
Remember when he had that huge three-homer game in April or May and people wrote about whether he was the most unlikely player ever to do such a thing? First of all, Scooter Gennett came along like a week later and made that look silly. Secondly, it was really weird to begin with. Rendon is a star. When healthy, a top-five overall third baseman. (Maybe. Probably.) (Matthew Trueblood)
2017-01-18 20:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of comp would you have for Nick Senzel?
(Harry from Roanoke)
Statistically, how about Anthony Rendon? (Bret Sayre)
2016-04-25 23:00:00 (link to chat)Keep holding Anthony Rendon or is it time to cut bait in shallow non-keepers? Are 2014 numbers (or even close) just a pipe dream?
(The Dude from Office)
I'd hang onto him for now, but he's riding pine until the numbers start adding up. Suffering thru a weird pop-up thing so far, but otherwise hitting the ball hard. May be pressing, discipline's out of whack too. He's too good of a hitter if he's healthy.

General reminder: it's been three weeks http://i1120.photobucket.com/albums/l488/IristheVirus17/oh-noes-everybody-panic.gif (Wilson Karaman)
2016-04-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)Any concern with Rendon?
(utdavidson from Austin)
My concern with Anthony Rendon is that he didn't perform when he was on the field last year and 2014 is the only healthy year he has ever had anywhere as a professional. He will always show flashes of the brilliant hitter that he is, but I'm not incredibly convinced that this will carry over across 600 plate appearances in any given season even if he does stay on the field. (Mike Gianella)
2016-01-27 19:00:00 (link to chat)What do you expect from Anthony Rendon in 2016? People forget he was a top five MVP candidate just a year ago and is only 25. Injuries have been scary though....
(holmesp2001 from St. Louis)
I'm with you on Rendon. I think he's being undersold. The injuries are a concern, but he doesn't have to get all the way back to his 2014 form to provide huge value. I think a top-3 finish at 2B is well within reach. (Matt Collins)
2016-01-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Chances Anthony Rendon is best 2B for dynasty after this year?
(Myrick from charleston)
70%? A lot depends on whether or not his health is sustainable. I've never been a big believer in the "health is a skill" idea but I would like to see him on the field for a second full season before being more excited here. (Mike Gianella)
2015-01-20 19:30:00 (link to chat)Hey guy, nice of you to join us this evening. Where does Anthony Rendon rank overall among position players in a 6x6 (OPS) dynasty league?
(Alan from Washington)
I haven't made an overall list yet, but I'd imagine he's a top-30 guy in that format. Love Rendon; hope he stays healthy. (Ben Carsley)
2015-02-13 19:00:00 (link to chat)Even though I think you credited other BP members with turning you onto him, I remember last year that it was you who seemed to be driving the bus on Anthony Rendon (or at least you seemed to end up with him on a bunch of teams). Who are the guys this year that you are higher on than most?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
I bought Rendon in Tout Wars but at the time I was a little disappointed that I didn't get Starlin Castro. I was probably higher on him than many industry experts but this was in part due to the BP fantasy team's excitement, particularly Bret.

Glancing at my ranks compared to ADP, my top five are Brandon Belt, Melky Cabrera, Manny Machado, Yasmani Grandal and Lucas Duda. If you're looking to the guy the BP staff likes who I'm on board with now as a result, that's Grandal, FWIW. (Mike Gianella)
2014-09-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)As my 12-team, 5x5 roto season winds to a close, I need some keeper help. We keep six from year to year and here are the potentials: Anthony Rendon, Josh Donaldson, Mike Trout (obviously), Troy Tulowitzki, Anthony Rizzo, Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg, Nolan Arenado I have Tulo, Rendon, Trout, Rizzo, Scherzer and Stras as my six. Would you choose them? Thanks for the help!
(Jake from Minneapolis)
I'd try to find a way to keep Donaldson and deal one of the pitchers, if I could. 28 bombs from 3B isn't anything to sneeze at, plus it allows you to play Rendon at 2B next year. Pitching is everywhere. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Dynasty league, which side you got? Chris Sale + Kris Bryant + Marcell Ozuna or Gregory Polanco + Anthony Rendon + Christian Yelich
(John Johnson from Wisconsin)
Sale/Bryant/Ozuna on the strength of the first two. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who's your favorite hitter? One that you find yourself rooting for more than others. What about a pitcher? Mine are Gregory Polanco and Sonny Gray. Just wondering if you had any guys that you particularly like.
(Nate from Indy)
This question has been plaguing me all chat, and I'm not sure I have an answer. I love watching Yordano pitch. Short guys with big velo are a soft spot for me. I love Gray too. As a Dodgers fan it's hard for me not to love Puig, but Anthony Rendon might be my favorite at-bat in the league. His hands are so damn good. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Would you trade Sonny Gray for Anthony Rendon straight up in a 12-team, six keeper league? If you were keeping Rizzo, Price, Scherzer, Trout, Tulo and Strasburg, would you even think about keeping Rendon over one of the pitchers?
(Jim from WI)
I'd be willing to make that trade, and it's something to consider, but I'd ultimately keep the pitchers. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-07-24 19:00:00 (link to chat)For a Fantasy Team rebuilding this year and looking towards 2015 2016 (R,HR,RBI,SB, AVG, OPS, 20 teams) to contend would you trade Anthony Rendon for Brett Lawrie and Clint Frasier? The logic from both sides is Rendon is a more complete INF and hitter than Lawrie, with a better OPS, Avg, SB, Runs but Lawrie is the same age and only a tier below Rendon. Both have 2b,3b eligibility this year and next but long term Rendon will be 3b and Lawrie might keep 2b longer? Is it worth the hitting down grade and a chance on frasier hitting his ceiling? Or stick with Rendon who will be a top 5 INF regardless of position for the next 5 years?
(Love INF from NJ)
I would try to trade other pieces for Frazier and Lawrie. I really like Rendon long term. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-07-09 15:00:00 (link to chat)After watching Anthony Rendon a lot this season, I've noticed that he seems make a few in-game adjustments against some very good pitching. He has such good barrel manipulation and extremely quick hands to generate sneaky plus power. One thing I have noticed is that he does not seem to maximize his legs during his swing. With a special talent like him, would you work to utilize that lower half to tap into even more power? He looks like such a special player that could hit 25-30+ HRs even without such a mechanical tweak.
(Leo from Olney, MD)
No. Rendon uses his legs fine. He doesn't have to big leg kick or the loud bryce harper back foot but the big leg muscles are doing their job just fine. Like you said he could hit 25-30 anyways so I'd let Rendon just keep doing his thing. (Ryan Parker)
2014-04-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Alex Bregman sounds a lot like Anthony Rendon 2.0...yay or nay?
(mat43287 from Oakland)
As a polished college bat that could go early in the draft, yes, but Rendon was a 3B who is holding his own at 2B right now while Bregman is an up the middle player all the way who can handle SS. They're not close enough to give them an updated software tag. (Jeff Moore)
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Anthony Rendon & Yunel Escobar as backup 2B/SS/3B in a 14 team mixed league: Just mediocre enough to suffice, or miserable?
(Phil from South Bend)
That's a deep league, man. Rendon has good upside. Escobar doesn't, but he should be okay. I like it. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)Welcome Ben, I'll start you off with a curveball: Let's say every draft eligible prospect from 2010 to 2014 was eligible for this year's draft. Just based on pre-draft scouting reports and without the benefit of hindsight, how would the first 10 picks of the draft unfold?
(baseballjunkie from cali, where it's already Spring)
This is an amazingly difficult question to answer, and also quite fun. It's probably better suited for an article than for a fantasy chat answer, but since I was able to access this question ahead of time, here's what I came up with after about 30 min of research. I'll note that since I'm not familiar enough with 2014 prospects yet, I've restricted your search to 2010-2013 draftees. I'll go with:

1. Bryce Harper 2. Manny Machado 3. Gerrit Cole 4. Dylan Bundy 5. Anthony Rendon 6. Jameson Taillon 7. Bubba Starling
8. Byron Buxton 9. Carlos Correa 10. Archie Bradley

Toughest omissions for me were Francisco Lindor, Trevor Bauer, Kevin Gausman, Kris Bryant and Mark Appel. If Luc Giolito had been healthy for his senior year, he'd probably have made it on this list. Obviously that's not how we'd rank them now, and it's funny that guys like Chris Sale, Jose Fernandez, Matt Harvey and Javier Baez are left in the dust. Bubba Starling sticks out like a sore thumb, and Buxton was underrated. This exercise also reinforces how loaded the 2011 draft was. Last year's pales in comparison. (Ben Carsley)
2014-02-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)If Anthony Rendon were still a prospect where would you rank him in this year's Top 100?
(Hippo from C-bus)
Probably in the late-teens or early-20's, somewhere in the Bryant, Hedges, Springer, Polanco, Bradley Jr group (Jeff Moore)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)Anthony Rendon. Which direction do you see him going this year. I'm tending to think he's a bit undervalued.
(higgsboson from guelph)
Hi higgs.

I see moderate improvement for Rendon. I think he'll get a little bit better but don't see him having a breakout year. I see the opposite; I think he'll be a little overhyped by some, but this has a lot to do with the leagues I play in. (Mike Gianella)
2013-11-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who would you rather have between Chris Owings and Anthony Rendon, and by how great a margin?
(gerrybraun from sandiego)
Rendon, but that's in part due to familiarity, scouting lineage and the fact he's already put in a decent big league line at 23, while changing positions. (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-10-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Harper truly break out next year for the Nationals and how much does Anthony Rendon improve next year?
(Mike from Utica, NY)
If he can stay on the field, Harper is always a breakout candidate. He could hit 50 bombs and it probably wouldn't shock anybody. (Jason Parks)
2013-10-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jedd Gyorko or Anthony Rendon?
(The Kernel from Pasadena, CA)
Rendon (Jason Parks)
2013-08-08 17:30:00 (link to chat)What would a typical Myers full season stat line look like in his prime? Same question for Rendon. Thanks!
(Cal Guy from Cal)
We talked about Wil Myers on the pod. I think you're probably looking at 25-30 HR with a .270 or .280 batting average. Anthony Rendon's harder to call because I don't think we've seen the best he has to offer, but I'd guess 20-25 HR with a .290 BA. There's a lot more volatility with Rendon for the reasons I mentioned. (Mike Gianella)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Who would you rather have for the next 3-4 years, Rendon or Matt Carpenter (assuming both are 2B)?
(Cal Guy from Cal)
Anthony Rendon and it is not close. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-06-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)20-team dynasty. In a vaccuum: Dylan Bundy, Anthony Rendon, and top 3 pick (rd 1) in prospect draft for Matt Cain and bottom 3 pick in prospecf draft (rd 1)?
(Dr. Mike from Milwaukee)
I think Matt Cain will eventually bounce back, but would still prefer the Bundy/Rendon/top 3 side of that deal. (Daniel Rathman)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Would you be looking to acquire Anthony Rendon on a Dynasty or move him? Since his injury history ?
(Abnergreen from Puerto Rico )
Absolutely I'd be looking to acquire Rendon - especially if his owner is down on him for health reasons and you can get him at any discount. If the health concerns weren't there, he'd be a top-5 prospect. (Bret Sayre)
2013-04-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Can you think of any guys who are currently in the minors that have a good chance of coming up and making an impact in the majors this year? Also, when we get through the Super Two deadline, which prospects do you think will be called up?
(Marco from California)
Three names that immediately jump to mind, Marco: Nolan Arenado (3B, COL), Wil Myers (OF, TBR), and Anthony Rendon (INF, WSH). Arenado should be ready to take over at the hot corner for the Rockies in the near future. The Rays might not be able to keep Myers in the minors for much longer, unless their current position players turn things around at the plate. And with Danny Espinosa scuffling, the Nats could look for an internal upgrade at second base, which a healthy Rendon could provide. (Daniel Rathman)
2013-03-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)What do you see for Anthony Rendon in 2014? A) Nats starting 2B B) Nats starting elsewhere C) Some other team starting 3B (due to trade)
(Cody from Cincinnati)
Realistically, I see him playing 3B for another organization. The Nats are clearly contenders and could use him a great trade chip. Plus, there's just too much downside to putting a guy who has a history of ankle problems at 2B - even though they could really use him there. (Bret Sayre)
2013-03-06 20:00:00 (link to chat)Anthony Rendon is killing it right now. Davey Johnson has stated "no matter what he's bound for the minors". Thoughts on his chances of making an impact this year.
(MerleDixon from PA)
It's important not to put much stock into a 20 PA sample, especially in ST. Rendon should be called up sometime in 2013, but not until the second-half. I wouldn't pay much attention in fantasy leagues. (Paul Singman)
2013-02-25 11:00:00 (link to chat)What are the odds of Anthony Rendon being successful in switching to second base ?
(Spirou from Montreal)
I don't like it. Let's take a guy with a history of ankle injuries and put him at a position that is physically taxing. Not sold on that. (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
2013-02-25 11:00:00 (link to chat)If a Texas genie appeared and could guarantee a healthy Anthony Rendon for the next 5+ years, would that move him up 15 or so spots?
(Milby from SF)
Absolutely. I love the bat speed; controls it well; natural feel for contact; gap power. He's a dude, but can he stay on the field? Big if. (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
2013-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on Anthony Rendon? Specifically, where do you think he ends up defensively, and does he even play for Washington, or do they trade him this spring after showcasing him at 2B, SS, and 3B?
(Sara from Tacoma)
Adam LaRoche has a two year deal which fits perfectly, because as that's running out Rendon can take 3B and Zimm can move to 1B. I don't think they'll deal him unless they develop a MAJOR need somewhere and there is a MAJOR piece available to fill said hole for more than part of 2013. (Paul Sporer)
2013-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)In one of my leagues I have serious interest coming in for my Trevor Bauer. The best offer would consist of something like Bauer and a mid-late first round pick in the prospect draft (14th or 17th) for the 5th overall pick in the prospect draft and either Anthony Rendon or Trevor Rosenthal. Thoughts on fairness of those offers?
(Slevin from Brooklyn)
Tempting. I like both Bauer & Rosy quite a bit. I think the offer is very fair and I'd take Rosy in that scenario. (Paul Sporer)
2013-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are you an Anthony Rendon guy? Does he have a good chance to hit right away in the majors?
(rangerfans2 from Fort Worth)
I like Rendon's bat quite a bit; great hands. He isn't going to be a big power guy, but I think he has a chance to be a high-average, high OBP type. (Jason Parks)
2012-12-20 14:00:00 (link to chat)If Anthony Rendon can stay healthy, and that's a big if, what is his ceiling in the majors? Does he start at 2B with Ryan Zimmerman at 3B? Or does he take over 3B and Zimmerman eventually moves to 1B? Thanks!
(Andrew from DC)
Andrew, I definitely think that Rendon can be a major-league regular, but I don't think Zimmerman - who is one of the best defensive 3Bs in the league - will be asked to change positions. The Nats will probably continue to develop Rendon at third, with a return to Double-A to start the season seeming appropriate, and find a different position for him when it becomes necessary (second is the most likely spot). Keep an eye on where he's used in spring training for possible clues. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-12-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)How can Anthony Rendon see the light of day?
(john from Chicago)
Bionic ankles (Jason Parks)
2012-10-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could you see Anthony Rendon hitting 25 bombs in his prime?
(John from Blacksburg)
I don't see that. I can see a ton of doubles and a high batting average, but I don't see that kind of power. I was thinking he could be a .285+ hitter with good OBP skills, 10-15 bombs, and a ton of doubles (ceiling) (Jason Parks)
2012-10-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)I am in fantasy league for the Arizona Fall League, which I enjoyed last year because it gave me insight about top prospects. Is there a guy in the AFL that you'd suggest as a "sleeper" player? Thanks a lot, I love BP!
(Julio from Austin, TX)
He isn't really a sleeper, but all the time Anthony Rendon missed this year may depress his value a bit in your draft. (Josh Shepardson)
2012-10-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which prospects do you see being major fantasy players next year?
(Jordan from St. Elsewhere)
Billy Hamilton is supposed to see time in the outfield in the AFL this year, and his stolen base ability could make him an immediate impact player. I love Wil Myers and Oscar Taveras, as well as Jurickson Profar. I'm not sure how the Nationals will handle Anthony Rendon with Ryan Zimmerman entrenched at third, but he has some potential to get to the bigs and make an impact quickly. (Josh Shepardson)
2012-08-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Saw the video of Anthony Rendon's 1st AA homer. Is it me, or does he have a busy setup?
(comish4lif from Alexandria, VA)
He can get busy, but the only thing that matters is how he gets to the ball and what he does upon arrival. I usually don't care about a noisy setup unless it prevents the hitter from getting into a good hitting position and/or timing, etc. Rendon finds himself in a good hitting position when his hands go back, and his trigger and subsequent extension are really beautiful. (Jason Parks)
2012-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which is the more likely scenario with Anthony Rendon? Espinosa to SS, Rendon to 2b or, Zimmerman to 1b, Rendon to 3b
(Swarly from VA Beach)
The second one. Can't see Rendon playing 2B, and Zimmerman's arm might move him to 1B. (Kevin Goldstein)
