Both these guys suck right now, which one do you like better? I have Jones & am thinking of a 1 for 1 swap.

i like markakis better, but really dont have a great reason.
Markakis has a better average
similar homeruns, similar steals
projections have markakis with a higher weighted on base average.

ESPN 10 team H2H each category. Before you say anything about it, I know I don't have any SP. This strategy has brought me to the championship game 4 of the last 5 years.

Jones has the potential to out homer and particularly out steal Markakis. Nick should finish with the higher average.

Jones is all about upside while Markakis is what he is at this point.

Markakis is overvalued everywhere. He's at his ceiling while Jones has a ways to go. The ups and downs with Jones will be greater but at this point in the year I'd take the risk.
