I apologize if this has already been discussed, I thought that I had seen it once, but could not find it.
I am torn on this one. I think that Markakis probably has more power upside, and if Rios is in the 2 hole, Markakis will knock in a few more runs regardless of Baltimore's poor offense. I'm really struggling over this one. I have both on two teams but am debating whether to give up Rios for Markakis in a 3rd. I think it's practically a dead heat, if you need Homers and Rbi's you go with Maka, but if you need runs and SB's you go with Rios. Opinions? In the long run, in a keeper league I'd probably hold on to Maka.
