For this year only, Cantu. Beyond that, Weeks.

Try the Draft, Trade, Keeper and Waivers Questions forum next time, and I'm sure they'll be much better suited to answer your qustion.

I also have then both in my keeper league. As much as I have been impressed with Cantu, he shall hit the Free_Agent market at the end of the season as he gets put back into the draft, Weeks will be on my team for a long time after this season. (knock on wood!)

Weeks steals and Cantu doesn't (4 to 0) and also has more walks already (10 to 7).

Cantu will hit for a higher average, but Weeks will steal more bases and have a higher OPS, because, as was stated, he'll walk a lot more ... I also, think Weeks will hit more HRs in the 2nd half. So it depends what your needs are.

in 2 years, maybe even by this time next year, weeks will blow cantu's numbers out of the water. weeks has 35+ hr power.
cantu has shown decent power but not like power most scouts agree weeks has...
weeks game is comparable to sori's #s (power/steals)..
plus, he's only 22 right now. if you pass on weeks in a keeper you will be sorry...
