Defintitely Marrero, he projects in the Paul Konerko/Pat Burrell mold offensively and with Headley, he was far more interesting before we found out he's gonna be an outfielder.

In terms of fantasy value, Marrero and it's not even close.

that's a silly response- "it's not even close"

sure it is. they are both being ranked around the same in most lists.

Headley will have a better average
Marrero will have more power
Headley breaks out first

so they are basically equal with a sllght edge to Headley because he get to the bigs this year

It'd be Marrero for me. Headley's power is more of a question mark and it doesn't help matters hitting at Petco half of the year.

Notice that I said "In terms of fantasy value". Those lists are based on real-life value, not fantasy. Headley is up there with Marrero on those lists because he plays a premium defensive position and he's more polished (he has plus plate discipline and draws a lot of walks). Other than that, there's not much to get excited about. Playing half his games at PETCO, I have serious doubts if he'll be able to hit 20 HRs annually at the major league level. Marrero on the other hand has huge power potential. In his first full season he hit 23 HR between A and A+ as an 18 yo. To give you some context, Headley hit 12 HR in A+ as a 22 yo in the hitter-friendly California League. So basically if you're only playing for this year you take Headley, but if not, Marrero wins out easily.

I also have Marrero about 10 spots in front ahead of Headley.
In my fridge: Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS), Central Waters Peruvian Morning, Bell's Batch 10,000, Dale's Pale Ale, Capital Brewery Amber, New Glarus Moon Man, and Guinness.
