For me, it's usually the opposite.

Rendon here first for me as well.

I would go with Rendon. Replacement level pitching is easier to find in the minors compared to a potential all-star caliber postional player. He has some risk, but what minor leaguer doesn't?

I should also point out that someone offered me Pomeranz and a late round pick for the 1st pick. Should I consider?

Cole....Gerritt Cole, the Pirates' top pick from the 2011 amateur draft, isn't ready for the majors just yet. But he's getting a chance to show Pittsburgh and Fantasy owners what he has to offer. The Pirates have high hopes for Cole, and he could appear in their rotation sometime during the 2012 season. He is a worthy target of owners in long-term keeper leagues.

Rendon....There is a possibility that Rendon will play in the OF, or maybe at 1B. However, Rendon does have a history of playing second, so I think Washington will at least take a look at him there if they decide to move him from 3rd. His bat would just be much more valuable for the Nationals at that position.
