Fantasy Baseball: Bryce Harper or Anthony Rendon?

In Wednesday's blog post, Buster Olney had this to say about Rice third baseman Anthony Rendon:

The Pirates will have the No. 1 pick in next year's draft, and the player widely considered to be the best player is Rice third baseman Anthony Rendon, who scouts say has the talent to play in the majors within a year after the draft. "If he and [Bryce] Harper were in the same draft, I think I'd take Rendon because he plays in the infield," said one rival talent evaluator. "Their [offensive] skills are comparable."

In 2010, Rendon hit .394-.539-.801 with 26 HRs, 85 RBIs, 14 SBs, and an incredible 22/65 K/BB rate. In 2009, he hit .388-.468-.702 with a 23/31 K/BB rate.

Harper is probably one of the top 2 or 3 prospects in the game, and could see the big leagues by 2012. It sounds like Rendon could be right behind him once he is drafted.

Who would you rather have in a long term keeper/dynasty league-Harper or Rendon?
