Fantasy wise you must go with Stewert. IN REAL baseball it might be marte because he's produced against much older players at such a young age. Marte just might be the better prospect, but not by much.

And his 3-year away split? .310, with 33 home runs, compared to .380 with 62 home runs at Coors. His translated career average is only .304.

Exactly. That's my point. Marte/Stewart is like Thome/Helton. Marte is the better prospect in real baseball, just like Thome has been the better first baseman the past couple years. However, Coors makes the Stewart/Helton tandem the better one.

Well Stewart hasn't played above A, so the safe pick would be Marte who had a pretty good year in AA. Bad BA but he was getting on base and slugging well. But for the potential... Stewart. He's better in the SAL then Marte was at the same age, and will be playing in Coors Field.

As for Helton vs Thome... Thome is a better hitter in real life. Better road OBA, better road SLG. That's why nobody is trying to trade for Helton and his ridiculous contract, and why Helton has recently said he doesn't want to leave Colorado.
