Steve Finley or Torii Hunter? Who would you take?

In a 5x5, H2H league. Who would you rather have on your team for 05'?

Hunter, all day. By a longshot.

Projections, similar ABs:

Finley: 40yrs old, 0.260, 24 HR, 84 RBI, 10 SB
Hunter, 29yrs old, 0.275 27 HR, 93 RBI, 16 SB

I'm pretty sure my projections of their actual ages will be accurate, the numbers should be close (based on BP).

That doesn't seeem like a hard choice. Even though defense doesn't show up in fantasy baseball, offensively, Hunter is still better. His average isn't great, but it's good enough with his Homers and RBIs

Interesting.... Here are my projections. I actually prefer Finley b/c of the average. Either way, in my mind it is no long shot.

Finley
Runs: 91, HR: 21, RBI: 92, SB: 7, AVG:299, OPS: 842

Hunter:
Runs: 85, HR: 25, RBI: 91, SB: 12, AVG: 273, OPS: 799

It's not that far apart, they have very comparable value in my book. I'd go with Hunter though.
