I actually expect the R/RBI to be even or in Markakis' favor due to his spot in the lineup and he will probably a better average. Hart should have more steals, which will negate most of the difference.

I'm high on both and I don't think you can go wrong with either. I do think Hart has the slightly higher power ceiling in the near term because of his frame though which is why I prefer him in keeper leagues despite Markakis being slighty younger.

Very similar players. If you play in an OBP league like I do, Markakis has the edge over Hart.

Can't go wrong with either one though. :-B

But Markakis destroys Hart in OBP. There will definitely be certain formats where I would much prefer Markakis.

Well since most people play in 5x5 leagues including myself, I really don't care about OBP.

I'll take Markakis only because he bats 2nd or 3rd in the lineup. Now, if Hart had this same opportunity then it would be a different story.

I'm somewhat surprised to hear you don't play in any league's that count BB's or OBP.......
