    What is more appropriate?

    or

    He is better at baseball than I.

    Re: Pronouns

    I would say that the first sentence is correct whereas in the second one you need to use "am" on the end of the sentence.So it will be
    He is better at baseball than I am. I hope it is correct .Lots of greetings...

    Re: Pronouns

    You'll see three forms being used:

    He is better at baseball than me.
    He is better at baseball than I.
    He is better at baseball than I am.
    Grammar purists prefer 'I', but most people use 'me', and either form is fine.
