Kinsler or Kendrick

Better to spend 1,600 gold on Kinsler or Kendrick? I'm leaning on Kendrick because of the 8 hit?
I currently have D. Gordon 3.5* L 7/1/9 and enjoy is 9 speed but maybe a tme for a change
4*
Howie Kendrick R 8/2/6
Ian Kinsler R 7/4/6

    TBatti:

    Kendrick and Kinsler are both right handed hitters, while Gordon is a lefty. Neither Kendrick or Gordon will hit many HR's. Gordon has better speed than Kendrick. Hitting will be close to a wash, because of the lefty vs righty aspect. My advice is to save your 1,600 gold, as the difference between the two players will be negligible.

    Gordon = Kendrick > Kinsler.

    Kendrick was on my team a long time. I expect his ratings to go up a little.

    I tend to agree with you. Kendrick has upside for sure, but with their current ratings (in my opinion) doesn't justify spending 1,600 in gold.

    If they adjust the player ability lines I can see Gordon becoming a 8 hit.

    Don't think its worth 1600 gold for that small of an upgrade IMO. Kendrick is solid, but not all that much better than Dee Gordon.

    With the release of tap baseball 2015, I doubt they will change ratings for this game anymore

    Yea I agree with the forum. It's just not a big enough upgrade to justify 1600 gold. A lefty 7 and righty 8 are pretty close BA wise.

    I have Kinsler on my team. He's batting about 260. I had kendrick and he was a monster. I habits a choice between him and Sean Rodriguez and choose S Rod. He held me down for a long time but using Kinsler customers of his hitting. I wish I had Howie back.
