Kipnis or Pedroia for the rest of the way?

Postby choan15 » Mon Jul 02, 2012 4:37 pm

in a 11 team head to head league.

Who would you rather have for the rest of the way?
Jason Kipnis or Dustin Pedroia??

Pedroia's thumb worries me, and Kipnis looks pretty legit so he gets my vote... but maybe i overvalue him...

i think it will be close. Kipnis is a 5 stat guy but pedroia could have great production with Crawford and Ellsbury coming back. Also he seems to be heating up so maybe the thumb is a non-issue. Still tough to say i wouldnt take Kipnis. I think it will closer than i looks right now.

You want an injured stud in Pedroia or a healthy Kinsler Jr easy decision. ;-D 8-o

Kipnis might be the better player anyway even if Pedroia wasn't injured. Pedroia's MVP season compared to Kipnis this year:

HR- About even
Avg- Pedroia by a lot
Runs- Pedroia by a hair
RBI- Kipnis by a hair
SB- Kipnis by a lot

So, it depends if you need more help with average or stolen bases... and this is going off Pedroia's MVP season. I think it's pretty safe to say that this year, Kipnis is easily the better player.

I own Kipnis and I wouldn't give him up for anything, he's having a great year and I would pick him the rest of the way.

Help with mine please? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=449934

Kipnis is awesome. He gets hits, stolen bases, hits for power, and is a good fielder. I have him in a keeper league for $3. I'll basically have him on my roster for his entire career. 8-o
